Wanna learn magic? Here is a little trick I have invented that you can perform with this website! It's perfect if you're a subscriber or fan of FreeMagicTricks4u and want to show off your magic skills to friends or family, introducing them to my site in the process!
Because this trick is completely online all you need is a computer and an internet connection and you are set!
THE EFFECT: Showing the FreeMagicTricks4u home page to your spectator you point to the logo at the top left of the screen. With your empty hand you cover the logo then proceed to move it across the screen to the other side. When your hand is removed the logo is clearly seen on the right hand side! Amazing.
But you are not finished yet, you then move the logo down into the middle of the page. You can leave it at that or make the logo snap back into place once more. Watch the effect below, then learn magic!
THE SECRET: This is a very simple trick to do. The page where the logo moves is actually a fake home page. It looks identical to my actual home page except the logo moves by it's self. You can check out the fake home page
As you can see the logo starts off in the top left of the screen. After five seconds it will vanish, after three seconds it will appear on the right hand side.
It will stay there for another five seconds before ending in the middle of the page.
Now all you have to do is time it just right with your hand covering the computer screen so that it looks like you are moving the logo around. This will take a bit of practice, but once you have it down it looks very cool.
So how do you get to this fake page to perform the trick? Good question. If you look on the left hand side of pretty much all the pages on FreeMagicTricks4u you will notice the yellow RSS subscribe box.
Just below that if you look closely you should be able to see a very small, faint button that says "TRICK" click that and you will be taken straight to the fake home page. Clever!
If you have trouble seeing the small button just click directly below the yellow RSS subscribe box and there it will be.
To perform the effect start by showing your spectator the normal FreeMagicTricks4u home page
Explain to them that this is a magic trick website you can learn magic, however it is actually magic it's self! While you are explaining this secretly click on the "TRICK" button to start the effect in motion.
When you have finished the trick and the logo is in the middle of the page simply click on the black "Share your magic HERE" button. Now because this is the fake home page clicking this button will actually take you straight back to my real homepage. You are then left completely clean!
TIPS: Depending on the web browser you are using (eg. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari etc) the fake home page may load slightly differently. To perform the effect again you should be able to click to another page of the site and then back again to restart the animation. If this doesn't work you may also be able to start the animation again by refreshing your web browser.
If both those methods do not work restart your web browser completely then come back to this site and the animation will start from the beginning.
If you want to learn magic fast this is a quick fun trick. Definitely one for the fans!
