This is the original Spider on the Hand Prank App. YouTube: “I told you not to do that”
Do you know anyone who is afraid of spiders? Everyone is, right?
Then this is the perfect magic trick/prank for you.
My Pet Boris app is the scariest app for the Android. Inspired by Jim Pace’s magic trick “The Web” where a spider magically appears on the back of your spectator’s hand. Bound to get amazing reactions. The app uses the idea of “Augmented Reality” merging real life objects with computer generated graphics to create a truly frightening effect.
THE MAGIC SPIDER EFFECT
You take a photo of the spectator’s palm (secretly loading a plastic spider on the back of their hand) and place the phone on their palm to hold.
Your Pet Boris – an Australian Red back spider (black widow) creeps onto the screen and they can feel the vibrations as it walks. You can tap the screen and even slide your finger into the animation to scratch the spider’s back. Boris walks off the screen.
You tell them that the phone has special sensors that when you wave your hand over the screen it makes the spider come back. He does.
You get them to wave their hand over the phone.
It is just then that they glimpse a realistic spider clinging to the back of their hand and they FREAK OUT!!
Bound to get BIG reactions. Finger tone and size can be set to suit your own. Start-up screen can be customized to suit your performance style. An actual photo of their hand, solid white or any image from your library can be used as a background.
NOTE: Requires a plastic spider or cockroach and adhesive dots to perform. You should be able to find these locally or you can purchase from our website.

THE MAGIC SPIDER WITH CARD REVELATION
You can force a card and vanish a torn corner of the card then have Boris bring the corner back using the App face up or face down. The corner can be moved around the screen then reproduced from under the phone. (From V2.0)
THE MAGIC COCKROACH EFFECT
The app also comes with a cockroach animation for those who think they are scarier than spiders.
THE MAGIC BUTTERFLY EFFECT – IN-APP PURCHASE – (for the Professional Magician).
The Magic Butterfly is an additional effect within the Magic Spider – My Pet Boris App.
It is enabled as an “in app purchase” for around $1.99 depending on your local currency. The custom finger feature is also unlocked when you purchase the butterfly effect.
This is a perfect routine for those times when you want to perform a beautiful effect for a little girl or woman, leaving her with a magical gift at the end. You will get similarly strong reactions to the Magic Spider effect without the scare factor.
The magician simulates a grand illusion in the palm of the spectator’s hand. A tiny foil covered “Magical Egg” is placed in the palm of the spectator’s hand and then photographed. The phone is placed on their hand.
The egg transforms into a Chrysalis and then into a butterfly. The magician’s finger is seen to tickle the virtual butterfly on screen which then flies away.
Using a magical gesture the magician brings the butterfly back briefly before it flies off again.
The spectator is asked to try and make it return. When they try, they find a matching butterfly (in an impossible location) on the back of their hand. The original foil egg has vanished.
