There’s a rumor floating around like a Phantom Saucer that I like sci-fi on occasion. As if SyFy’s Warehouse 13 is on right now while I go back through old Torchwood episodes to make sure I haven’t missed anything. And all that is second to Doctor Who – ever since I was a wee lad.

With the Phantom Saucer, I now pretty sure I know how they did those early Sci-Fi special effects. But can you recreate what you see in the commercial?

What Is the Phantom Saucer?

We’d say it’s like a space-age yo-yo, but that would imply that there’s a string that makes it do all those floaty things. We found those who said otherwise, but you’ll have to keep reading. But, in short, it’s a children’s toy that especially appeals to those who have a flair for the magical arts.

Does Phantom Saucer Work? Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams…

Order Process: Simple BOGO (Buy One, Get One). The main offer total comes out to about $21.98 + taxes – pending. And, upsells will add to the order of you accept them. Typical online indicators haven’t shown any order process issues at the time of this writing, but we’ll keep checking.

Product Performance: So far we haven’t seen anything that would indicate that there was issues with the product’s performance, but the question people want to know is:

Does the Phantom Saucer Work?

Sure. So far in there’s no camera tricks in the commercials and what you see is what you get. Now, speculation on how it works is another story. The first place we went to check out if it works is ChaCha.com. Someone pointed out helicoptor propulsion nice that is utilized by hands. But we weren’t satisfied with that answer so we continued on and found an answer at wiki.answers.com that we thought summed it up:

It’s attached to a piece of nearly invisible string…
Sources: I bought one :(


It doesn’t meant it’s not realistic like any other magical illusion nor does it mean it’s not fun, but if that’s found to be true, then, hey, so it goes. Go have fun!
