[MAGIC] - David Blaine's Levitation

[MAGIC] - David Blaine's Levitation is something that really fascinated the first time I saw it on his tv special some years ago. Later, after reading many threads on a USENET magic group, I discovered the Balducci Levitation, a form of close-up magic that is very convincing if done right. I've done it and it does work. It's not all that impressive when you know the trick, but Blaine's ability to set a mood and then perform this levitation put the people on his show into emotional fits. Rui sent me this link, which is an excellent description of the trick. EXPOSURE: The Balducci Levitation
