Hidden Hand (DVD and Gimmick) Review

Official Review

This is a simple device and Sean starts out by apologizing for how simple it is. The ad copy describes what it is not, and some may be a bit disappointed in finding out that it is something that is just slightly different from one of the items in the list of what it is not. OK, getting past that, let’s talk review. It is a simple device, but I can only speak for myself in saying this is not something I have seen before. I would say it combines a few principles to come up with what for me, is a new mouse trap.

I think it is a very effective way of making any small item seem to just disappear like pure magic. It is a very clean vanish. You can also reproduce the small item easily.

It is easy to install and easy to use. It is very practical for any setting.


One word of caution is it is NOT invisible. However, I would say it is only slightly angly, as are many effects. You can control it’s visibility watching your angles. I would say that it would likely not be seen to people up close if they are within about a 70 degree radius in front of you. I would say that is should be totally invisible from a distance of several feet or more, perhaps 8 feet or so.

Also, it comes with a limited supply of what is needed to repair the gimmick. However, it is pretty sturdy, so it should not break easily. I don’t know where you might find a couple of the needed items. Perhaps they are out there, but I can’t say if you would find them easily or not.

I figure that should mine break, and I ran out of material to fix it, I could create a version of this that would work just as well with commonly available materials.


A very nice little device. I am definitely planning on using this.
