Ever wondered how some of the classic magic tricks are done? Teun de Wijs might have some answers for you! This LEGO version of the “floating woman” illusion is a little technical marvel, and when seen from multiple angles, gives an idea of how such a trick might be done.
You can see Teun’s kinetic sculpture in action in this video.
This isn’t the first excellent kinetic sculpture by Teun! He has several pretty impressive automaton, including a snake charmer and this wizard and magic box illusion. I think my favorite part of all of these is that they have multiple doors that look in on the mechanisms.
