Newton's Nightmare A brilliant synthesis of sorcery and science, Newton's Nightmare must be seen to be believed!

From the mind of William J. Schmeelk comes this gravity-defying miracle. A brass weight is dropped through an aluminum tube. It rockets through, falling into the spectator's hand. So far, so good.

But, at the magician's command, the weight drops through the tube in slow motion - like an astronaut bounding across the moon! The weight can be clearly seen floating through the tube!

Furthermore, the brass weight can be seen floating through the tube - even while the trick is in the package, making this a virtually self-performing miracle!

Newton's Nightmare is a delight to perform, and easy enough for any aspiring sorcerer - or scientist - to master.

Show those physicists what you're made of. Slow gravity down in front of your audience's faces.

Not the greatest magic trick, but a great demonstration of physics and Lenz's law. When I first got this, I played with it for hours because it was so cool. This would be perfect for a school teacher, the students would love it.

Great teaching tool Report this review

I use this as an attention getter for teaching science. Beginners will pick this up quickly. Good quality for the price. Certainly worth it as an opener.

Great for School Report this review

Newton's Nightmare is a really good trick to perform, and it's really fun too. Whether you are taking science, teaching science, or none of the above, this is an amazing trick and a good gag too. While making the "bet" be confident. They will be unable to catch it (at least most of the time) but you will always. Don't anticipate catching it though. I like to wait for the drop, then I cover my mouth and yawn, and then bring my hand down to catch it. If you are looking for a different type of trick that is fun to perform and guaranteed to get some good reactions, then pick this one up.

Interesting Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2010
This is a lot of fun and very little slight of hand is required to perform it well. It works by itself and is fun to mess around with or to freak people out. You will have fun with and the price is nice so add to cart.

Kids Love It Report this review

I purchased this from a local magic shop last weekend. The very same day I put it into my act at a birthday party and it was the talk of the party. The effect is very visual and with a little creative patter can be fun for everyone. It packs small and plays big. The only effort needed is creative patter. If you are looking for a simple trick with lots of entertainment potential buy this.

Worth every penny Report this review

This trick is a spectacular sight to see. It is very easy to do without a lot of confusing steps. A good story is necessary on this trick. And no big gimmicks--just science.
