Is DYNAMO the magician some sort of freak of nature?

seriously, how does he do the things he does?
he literrally appears able to read peoples minds.
and i have just seen him on tv showing a 'trick' to natalie umbrelia. he made all the fake butterflies on the wall come to life and fly around the room.


is anyone clever enough to work out how he does this stuff?

Seriously?

Seriously seriously seriously?

You buy a book or a trick from your local magic shop and then preform it!

Being "Clever" does not come into it as it is not a test of intelligence you simply have to learn such stuff. (Which anyone is capable of doing - However, performance helps if you have a talent for it.

I think the butterflies were released from above. I do wonder if he has a twin though.

I saw one a few days ago where he removed the ice & then the tea from a glass of iced tea so it ended up being just a glass of water.
It freaked out the person he was doing the trick with so much he ran away.

He's a magician, who uses illusion, sleight of hand and distraction techniques.

Same as any other magician.

He is very very good at what he does. I must admit, I have at times been watching him on TV and thought 'what the....how did he just....he must be some sort of alien or something' but of course I don't really think that. He is just amazing at what he does.
With other illusionists like David Bland, sorry Blaine, I could always kind of fathom how it was done but with this Dynamo character I just have no idea!

Never heard of the geezer until now. I've just Googled him, and he looks to be nothing more than another one of those illusionist types.

Lets be honest, he has some card skills but ultimately he is pretty 3rd rate. Even today Paul Daniels would run rings around him. The clip below shows how unimpressive he really is.

Assuming it's the same trick I've seen in the past, the stickers on the windows aren't actually stuck on, theyre suspended behind, the window slides up and he walks through the newly made hole, which is covered by (normally) a newspaper.

Everything he does is either easily explainable, someone elses trick nicely presented, or, sadly, a camera trick or a stooge.

Eisenstein was pretty good, in The Illusionist, and you know that was all tricks.

I love watching Dynamo.

I KNOW its not real and there is an explanation for each of his tricks, but I like living in ignorance and not knowing how he does everything he does.

I like to be amazed

Best trick he could perform is to make all the Adidas product placement disappear. That would impress me.
