Simple illusions


YoYo
The juggler is often compared to an illusionnist who makes anything fly in front of the witnesses' amazed eyes. The tricks which I present here are ideal to surprise the witness, even if nothing is hidden and if there is no artifice to make faking, it is almost impossible to understand for a not initiated person. The siteswap will help us to understand the sequence of the throws. I encourage you to consult the explanations of the siteswap before starting, here.
All the tricks presented below are based on the siteswap sequence 42:
- 42: 2 balls in column with a hand, 1 ball hold in the other hand

DGDG.......
The "2" corresponds to the hand which does not launch. Here is the hand which seems to make nothing, will be move to transform the trick completely (without ever launching the ball).

Although these tricks are completely symmetrical, I advise you to launch in column with your preferred hand.

 YOYO or string  Just positonne the ball that you do not launch to the top of one of the 2 others and the result is guaranteed. The difficulty is to preserve a constant distance between these 2 balls.

 

OYOY or levitation Contrary to "YOYO", the hold ball is placed below.
Fake 
This time, the opposite ball is followed (oops..... I did not make it successfully on the video)
Orbit Here, the hand that is holding a ball turns around another ball in the air (note that the 2 balls are not launched in column)
 Good work!!!
