A wooden box becomes incredibly heavy! Is it science or is it magic?
Now with a larger box for a more spectacular effect!
The Light/Heavy effect was invented by Robert Houdin in the 19th Century. During one performance an Arabian strong man was so shocked that he couldn't pick up a small empty trunk that he ran off stage convinced the magician had stolen his strength!
The magician shows a box to a volunteer. He then places the box on a book and covers it with a silk hankie. He asks the volunteer to lift the box, which is no problem. Now the magician clicks his fingers and asks the volunteer to try again. They can't. It's simply too heavy! The magician removes the silk and opens the box. Inside is nothing but a piece of paper with a Biblical verse printed on it. 'The Lord is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation.' Psalm 118:14
New large impossible box
