One of the most memorable magic acts on Season 12 of America’s Got Talent will be performed by 33-year-old visualist Will Tsai of Canada. His card, coin, red rose petal act will have the audience and judges (Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B, and Heidi Klum) gasping in disbelief.
When not performing on stage, Will is known as a special effects designer. According to the SansMinds website, Will has designed a number of devices to be used by magicians including The Vanishing Ring. The idea is to let a spectator take off her ring, put in it the box, and when she closes it, it disappears. (You decide how it reappears, e.g. in a piece of fruit, on a necklace chain). The Vanishing Ring sells for $139.99 online and includes an online access code to detailed instructions on how to use the Vanishing Ring but does not include TV rights. (The box comes in red, blue and black.) America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
