The Chen Lee Water Suspension is a magic trick.
The Effect: First, an empty tube is shown to the audience. The magician proves that it is empty by passing an empty cup through the tube. Next, the magician picks up a pitcher full of water and slowly pours the water into the tube, where it magically stays suspended. The magician can even pass a silk scarf through the water-filled tube, and the silk doesn't get wet. Finally, the magician picks up the empty cup and passes it through the bottom of the tube and when it emerges through the top, it is seen to be filled with water.
The Chen Lee Water Suspension was invented by U. F. Grant in 1962.
