Jason Berrang's Trendy
Several very effective Web based magical effects. The card trick floored me the first time!
Robert Orenstein's Card Trick
One of the most amazing card tricks on the internet, if you know how to perform it. A real puzzle with a real solution. The secret to perform it is not given away by Mr. Orenstein. He invites you to e-mail him and beg him to tell you. The secret is not easy to figure out, but it is quite amazing and elegant once you do. Note, this site may not be online anymore.
Amazing Card Trick
This is the same basic effect as the card trick on Jason's Trendy Magic (#1) but it is presented in a slightly different way, adding to the effect.
The Great Mysto
John Olsen has done a very nice job of creating some self working magic on the web.
Cave of Magic
This is the same effect as those on sites #1and #3, but presented in a different style. This is the one that Rosie O'Donnel played with for 3 hours before she figured it out. Worth going to just for the beautiful photos by Bob Ray!
John Hall, Magician, performs a card trick for you on the web. Nicely done.

Illusions and Paradoxes Seeing is Believing?
This page illustrates that our visual perception cannot always be trusted. The components of an object can distort the perception of the complete object. Our mind is the final arbiter of truth. Most optical illusions are the result of 1) incongruent design elements at opposite ends of parallel lines, 2) influence of background patterns on the overall design, 3) adjustment of our perception at the boundaries of areas of high contrast, 4) afterimages resulting from eye movements or from kinetic displays, or 5) inability to interpret the spatial structure of an object from the context provided by the picture.

"Do we know what the world looks like?
The eye is made up of some of the most amazing tissue in the body. The lens, for example, is perfectly clear, perfectly curved and is capable of focusing on an incredible amount of data. But vision has only partly to do with the retina, lens, and cornea. Understanding what we see mostly happens in the brain, which is why a person with perfect vision is still susceptible to optical illusions. Do we know what the world looks like? We know approximately what it looks like, which is enough to get by, but our perception of the world is not without a certain amount of 'misreading.' Our visual nervous system approximates color, shape, and dimension."
