Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up! In this magician's version of I Spy, you read your audience's minds to discover the chosen object. Just enlist the help of a discreet assistant, practice a bit, and get ready to wow the crowd. And remember, a magician never reveals her secrets.
First, leave the room so the audience can select a particular item.
When you return your assistant begins pointing to different objects in the room one by one, asking "Is this it?" Concentrate on each thing for a moment before saying "No" — or "Yes" when he points to the chosen item.
The Secret: Ahead of time, instruct your assistant to point to something black immediately before pointing to the selected object.
