    That is actually very very very very very simple. You are talking about a couple mirrors and maybe to make what you just saw there better a cool torso piece. Im sure someone can explain it line by line but that is just too easy to create.

    This was outside and you could walk right up to it and still couldn't tell how it was done

    Deathstate, that is prety close, but the key is the partial cube box he is in. Mirrors are involved. let me know if this helps.

    Yeup. That's similar to the Spill your Guts illusion. One of my all time favorites. I'll be building mine this year! FINALLY! I haven't built one before.

    This mirror setup is the basis for MANY illusions. Use your imagination and you can come up with a lot of stuff, from seeing through underside of tables to showing empty boxes before pulling something out (which is actually only one mirror, but still same basis. It reflects the side of the box.

    i looked really hard at this one and I didn't see any mirrors... plus it was out side... I was thinking it just had a hole the guy was coming out.. but you could look and see empty space behind the spine


    Thanks for the info... I will give this a try..

    I appreciate everyones help

    Trust me, this is how it was done. it was a purchased unit. you dont see the mirrors because they are reflecting the sides. that is why the sides of the box are there.
    Outside or inside it does not matter, you wont see the mirrors.
