When the crank is rotated on the side of the automaton, the magician slowly pulls his hand out of the
hat to reveal that he is holding a certain object. As the crank is rotated further, his hand decends into the hat
once again. When it rises, the object has mysteriously and magically changed into a new object!
Machini performs this masterful illusion several times, transmuting the object six times, to the amazement
of all! Upon request, Machini will perform a variation of this illusion in which he changes the color of liquid
within a jar several times.
