The famous and easy animated card that mysteriously moves AWAY from your fingers-zooming across the table. Examinable, before, during and after. One of the most devious uses of Elastic Thread ever created.

This effect is one of Ben Harris' most closely guarded secrets. Prior to releasing the idea to critical acclaim in 1999, Ben had been sitting on this for over ten years, using it privately for the most important occasions only. It is the perfect effect for Street Magic performances as it can be performed under the most stringent conditions-ANYWHERE! As you and the card can be examined at any time, it's perfect for "controlled conditions" psychic-style presentations.

If you are familiar with Ben's previous writings, you will know that he has always insisted that the very strongest magical effects appear to violate natural law. As an example, "levitation" has always been one of the magician's most powerful effects because gravity appears to be overturned. Zoom certainly appears to violate the laws of nature. While, not a "levitation", there is a moment when the stationary object "comes to life"- something intimate shared with the genre. Further to this, the effect appears perfectly natural and effortless at every stage of performance. The object to be animated is 100% examinable (even though it is cleverly gimmicked) and the lead-in and lead-out consist of perfectly normal actions in every way. The effect per se (between the lead-in and lead-out) looks exactly like real magic. In fact, nothing appears to be contrived at all.

Further more, the effect is tamper proof. It matters not if a testy spectator grabs your hands or the animated object at any point during performance. Nothing will be discovered and you can instantly pick up where you left off without any worries-isn't this just as it would be if you had real magical powers? These positive attributes make Zoom the almost perfect magical demonstration of supposed psychokinetic powers. Like all ideas that seem to actually end up having some merit, this one is-very simple. However, to meet all of the above criteria, Mr Harris has thought it all through in a thorough manner over the years. While nothing about Zoom is difficult, you do need to read these instructions very closely in order to absorb the details. Don't just read the secret and go off into the wild without really giving this a good work out in private. Learn the subtleties, understand the hows and whys before you take this into the public arena.
