Sitting on Air Levitation Trick
You may have encountered street performers that are seemingly ‘levitating’ in mid-air, almost as if they were sitting on an invisible chair. Supernatural powers are definitely not in use, just a clever contraption. Simply put, it consists of three sections made of steel rods / plates: the seat, shaft, and a base plate. In this case, “The Q” made a custom leg brace capable of holding up his entire body’s weight hidden underneath his jeans. Read more for a video showing exactly how it works.



Sometimes, this illusion can be performed with two people, with one person holding up a metal rod, while the other floating up top. In this scenario, there are two plates, one at the bottom and steel rods connecting the other sitting plate up top, all cleverly hidden underneath clothing or other objects.
