Flyte Buda Ball Levitating Magnetic Sphere, Floating Magic Home Decor… (Walnut/Chrome)
About this deal
Can anyone explain how in the world even a really fast switching system is going to keep the indicator object from falling AND from hitting the clock face. The power consumption on this thing would have to be pretty impressive (for a clock), especially with the snap-to-the-face-during-power-outage behavior. Is there a motorized mechanism inside or does a grid of coils address the movement of the magnetic orb?
If you expect the object to be levitated will experience gravity at a different angle than 90 degrees you could account for that. Some viewers might reveal the secret within a few seconds, so in my opinion, the trick is great for a little show for kids, but that’s it.To make his movements look more natural, he mirrors his grip on the two sides of the cloth, making the same moves with both of his hands. OK, the way I would do this is to have a magnetic levitation coil on a spinning disk that driven by an encoder stepper motor to keep it in sync with the time. The floating ball magic trick is an absolute classic of magic that countless professional magicians have performed on stage and tv.
A surprised look on his face makes the illusion even more convincing – apparently, even the magician himself didn’t know about the powers of the ball!
I felt like I needed to get my British side across as well on this record, because sometimes people don’t actually know where I’m from. According to their info, the ball is “Chrome” (but, since that would create problems with magnetism, obviously, I assume they mean “Chrome on the outside”). Makes sense I suppose, since the ball is only going to be on one side or the other, between any two coils.
It would be easy to guess how it works if this was simply sitting flat on a table (which it can do). Originally included on Dua Lipa’s 2020 album, Future Nostalgia, the song found new wind towards the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 with a DaBaby assisted remix that only served to heighten the songs popularity and skyrocket its crossover appeal. Buda Ball reminds us to take a moment to create balance and calm, centering ourselves amidst the ups and downs of life.I will showcase three different performances, and explain all of the different methods used for these tricks. During the performance, the magician makes it look like the ball tries to escape from underneath the cloth. I’m pretty sure they use some kind of control system to keep the (probably) magnetic ball in balance of a strong permanent magnet.
