Coin Magic Video
You do not need to speak Chinese in order to be impressed by this.  It is the best coin work that Doug and I have ever seen.  We are in awe. Link courtesy of my partner Doug.

Thoughts

Yeah, I made a whole lot of WTF noises too. *grin*

I know a little about how he must be doing it. Coin magic relies far more on manual dexterity and showmanship than on gimmicks. So it's a class of magic that tends to get more impressive if you know how it's done. I am particularly a fan of such. Much of the oomph in the big stage productions is just fancy hardware. But what's in this video hints of many, many, many hours of practice leading to exquisite control. There is at least one thing I conclude he's doing, not even really a magic thing but just a fiddly little bit of handling, that I doubt I could do.

Doug knows more about how it works, and he is even more impressed.
