Unliftable is a revolutionary take on the "light & heavy chest" plot. Imagine being able to make your own "light & heavy" boxes for less than $5, and adapt the gimmick to many different objects: decks, rubik's cubes, phones, or even clear objects, like drinking glasses and even fishbowls!

You will always carry in your pocket your own "light & heavy chest", and the gimmick is so simple to make that even a kid can do it. The construction will take you only 2 minutes and you will need just 3 simple materials which you can easily find in any office supply store.

The gimmick is invisible to sight and touch, and many of the objects could be handled by the spectator without the secret being detected, and moreover so you will be able to activate and deactivate the gimmick in plain sight with no fancy moves. It is as simple as leaving the object on the table, and it will be always under your control.

Also Unliftable has some other advantages over the classic "light & heavy" methods: even when the object is "locked" on the table, it can still move freely along the surface but won't lift!. The spectator will be amazed when he feels that he can move or twist a deck on the table but can't lift it at all.

In the download we also include an instructional video (with audio in Spanish and subtitles in English), and a pdf (also in Spanish and English) plenty of useful links and 6 original routines to play with this concept.

Routines:

Thor's Hammer: an amazing effect which is always ready to go in your pocket. The magician leaves his phone on the table showing a picture of Thor's Hammer on the screen. Now, nobody will be able to lift the phone, except for the magician.

The fish that thinks he's a whale: a funny and surrealist routine. The magician hypnotizes a fish and makes him believe that he is a whale. Surprisingly, nobody will be able to lift the fishbowl until the magician "wakes up" the fish from the trance.

The heavy shadow: an elegant and enigmatic stage routine. The magician holds the shadow of a box projected on a back curtain, and the spectator can't lift the real box.

The heaviest mineral on Earth: the magician convinces the audience that the mineral placed on the table is the heaviest material on Earth. Nobody will be able to lift it, until the magician reveals in the end that was just a sponge stone and it was all an illusion.

Rubik's cube gag: a funny bit that can be added to any rubik's cube routine. The magician challenges the spectator to solve the cube in less time than him. When the countdown starts, the spectator can't even lift the cube from the table, so the magician wins easily.

A bucket full of stones: a good detail to be added to a hypnosis routine. The magician gives a bucket to a spectator, and he tells her to imagine that it is full of stones. Now the spectator won't be able to lift it.

I watched the download and this looks amazing. However, the main part of the gimmick cannot be purchased just anywhere. Right now I have two calls out trying to find someone that will sell it to me. This is going to take planning and calling around to try to find it. If it cannot be bought locally in your area you will have to pay $25 just in shipping charges through an online store plus the $5.00 for this part that is needed to make the gimmick. It then requires some arts and crafts to prepare the gimmick which doesn't look to complicated. I believe that at least this part of the gimmick should have been supplied initially just to get us started in performing this right away. Overall, I am glad I made the purchase because the benefits of performing this will be so great once I find the part I need. But if you are looking to perform this a day or two after purchasing this, it more than likely will not happen without some frustration in obtaining the supply necessary to build this thing.

Great Idea but.... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2018
I think its a brilliant principle but is some what limited to what surfaces you can do it on. My biggest complaint is about the materials needed to make the gimmick. They list only one supplier in the US (another in Spain)and the shipping costs are more than the material is worth. Very high 16-25 dollars JUST to ship plus cost of material. When I do the math it increases the price of this effect to 3 times what I paid for it. Its not something you go to your local office store and buy. Also there are a lot of other materials on the market that appear to be the same but do not work .Its a very specific material so be cautious. Its do bad Penguin does not order this in and bulk and offer it.

Love it!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
I have to recognise that at first I wasn't very sure with my purchase....but for only 8 euros I could give it a try. The explantion is very good ( download and subtitles), the gimmick is great and I really love the way you lock and unlock it. It's all the time under your control. You're gonna need 15-20 minutes to make the gimmick and buy a couple of things. I personnally prefer the stage tricks where the gimmick is completaly invisible. If you like light and heavy routines this one is excellent

You’ll probably regret buying this Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 16th, 2018
First off, a warning Incase you missed this like me: The video is in Spanish with English subtitles. Usually this wouldn’t be too hard to understand, but the subtitles go by quick and the video is terrible. There are no closeups on his hands the entire video. This made it hard for me to even understand how to make the Gimmick. I watched the video over and over and couldn’t even figure out how the Gimmick worked. It’s rediculous that penguin would sell something that I couldn’t even understand the method to because of a bad video. I still dont even know how the trick works and had to get a refund. Save yourself the trouble and the money. Don’t buy this.

First, I feel I have to say, if I could give this 10 stars I would. But unfortunately I'm limited to 5. ( that's so 2017 ) Second, why doesn't this have more reviews???? That's so mind bottling to me. This is such a beautifully brilliant design for an illusion . Third, I have never used anything like this ever. And I'll be honest. I knew that this method existed. Just not with magic . Amdapplying it to magic was one of the most brilliant things I eseen done .( bold statement. But true ). And fourth, why does this have any reviews?? Wait, I already said that. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with this purchase. Like, EVER!!!! I very much appreciate this being released. As well as a ton of other mentalists I'm sure. If mentalism is something you're interested in. Or have been doing for a while. This will fit in perfectly with any mental routine. I promise. This release deserves way more reviews. One of my top 10 purchases from penguin or any other magic company .

Fantastic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2018
This will do exactly what it says in the trailer. It's a close up invisible light heavy box and that's amazing. The method is really smart and it will fly by everyone. I loved this and it's also super fun to actually perform on people.

More expensive than you think (read if you use Rubik's Cubes) Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2018
If you think you're going to spend $11 and be able to perform a light and heavy trick you are going to be very disappointed.

The materials required to make the gimmick for this trick are not easily obtained. They provide you with a link to a website where you can purchase the material needed and the material is only $5 but you are going to have to pay $26 in shipping to get it delivered anywhere in the US. I ended up tracking down a commercial supplier and was able to purchase the material from them for $15 (3 times more money) After obtaining the materials I made the gimmick which was relatively easy to construct. The gimmick does not work very well on any surface other than totally flat, crystal clear, completely flawless glass. I tried it on many different surfaces and it will stick for a second but then it lets go. If you do it on Flawless glass that is totally flat it will hold well enough to let the spectator give it a few short tugs. If the spectator decides to give it all they've got and really rip at it it is going to come up. After asking some questions on the discussion page for this trick, I was told that if I purchase the material from anyone other than the seller that they provided a link to then the gimmick will not work properly. I was told that many different companies sale a product that is similar to the one you need. I was told that the other retailers will even call it the exact same thing. But you should not purchase it from any other source than the one they provide you with because other free Taylor use different materials and there is no way to know for sure if you're getting the right product.

So now I have to decide if I want to spend another $30 (shipping and handling and the product) to see if the gimmick will work better if I use their supplier. The problem is I have no way of knowing whether the product that their supplier provides me with is going to work any better then the product I already have. I guess I'm not ready to take that gamble yet maybe one day in the future.

I was also unhappy with the quality of the explanation video. It is not in English and has subtitles. I have learned many Magic routines by reading subtitles but they usually will slowly explanation down enough that you can read the subtitles and watch what they're doing. The subtitles move very quickly and I had to constantly go back and replay sections. The handling also isn't explained very well but if you watch it a few times eventually you can figure it out.

To make this trick work you are going to need excellent audience management. At first, the Spectator will have a very hard time seeing the gimmick (because they won't know what they're looking for) However, if you let them handle the item long enough they are definitely going to find it. It hides better on some objects than others. For example you can probably get away with using a glass that is filled with a dark liquid (glass must have completely flat bottom). If you want to use a deck of cards, The Spectator cannot examine the deck after you make the deck "heavy" because with a little effort and just a few seconds they WILL find the gimmick.

I purchased this trick so I could use it with a Rubik's Cube (a Rubik's Cube clip is shown in the advertisement video)
IF YOU WANT TO USE THIS GIMMICK ON A RUBIK'S CUBE THE SPECTATOR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE THE RUBIK'S CUBE AT ALL!!!!
You can show the Rubik's Cube to The Spectator and even move the sides to show that it is real, but you cannot let the spectator examine the cube. You can set the cube in their hand for a second and you can let them try to pick it up off the table (which if the trick works they won't be able to) but you cannot let them turn any of the pieces or handle the cube after they try to pick it up off the table.

Another problem with using a Rubik's Cube is that in order for the gimmick to work you will have to use super glue to make one of the center tiles unremovable. For my Cube routine I use expensive high quality speed cubes. There is no way I am going 2 super glue one of my Center tiles which will prevent me from making adjustments to my cube in the future. In other words, You are going to have to get a cheap Cube that isn't going to match any of the other cubes that you use in your routine which will seem odd to the spectators.

Overall I am very upset with my purchase and will probably never use this trick. If you want to pay the $11 just to find out how it works but you have no intention of using it then feel free but if you are expecting to be able to use this and you don't have $11 to throw away don't waste your time.
