Any ideas how this trick works? The video is pretty good. http://www.yigalmesika.com/electric%20touch.htm
Maybe the gizmo that they sell is a battery and a capacitor?

From the review...
"They both agreed it has potential, but definitely fails to live up to it's hype and it's price."
Now that's funny. How much potential? This brings to mind those old foil-lined gag books called, "The Joy of sex" and the like. You open them up and a spring contact vibrates, interrupting battery current into a trigger coil. Not quite the joy I was looking for.

Thats an odd finger to have your only ring on?
I think that ring he has on might have something to do with it.
