Spoon Bending


Spoon bending is a magic trick which some people think demonstrate paranormal abilities. The biggest proponent of spoon bending is Uri Geller. He has never subject himself to demonstrating his abilities under test conditions but he claims that he uses psychic energy to bend the spoons, rather than the magic trick that other people use to create the same results.

In reality spoon bending is a trick just like any other illusion. It is a function of the manipulation of the physical and thermal properties of the metal of the spoon. The effect has been demonstrated many times over the years by Ash Pryce, one of the co-founders of Edinburgh Skeptics, at both his magic performances and live at our Meadows Festival stall.
