Levitation in Times Square and White House

A news from the magic world! Dutch magician 'Ramana' has tried his best to freak out American people by levitating in Times Square and in front of the White House. The illusionist, real name Wouter Bijdendijk, hovered several feet above the pavement with apparent ease. His only "prop" was a stick that he held with his left hand.

A household name in his native Netherlands, Ramana has performed for Queen Beatrix and has been honoured in India with the Golden Cloth award, the highest cultural honour ever given to a westerner.

"This is an art," Ramana said.

Watch a video report from Reuters, on Ramana's levitation in front of White House:

Ramana's repertoire also includes "flying" up to 10 metres above ground, mind reading and other forms of Indian street trickery. Link 1, 2

See the post on my blog for the explanation of how he creates this illusion of sitting on a table.

Woops, I think I just gave it away...
