 +A similar method to Hennig'​s was devised by Paul N. Rylander to switch a prediction rather than a playing card. It appeared in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​38249/​The+Sphinx/​9|The Sphinx]]// Vol. 49 No. 6, Aug. 1950, p. 125. In Rylander'​s technique, a folded piece of paper was placed in an opaque cup. For the trick'​s climax, the right hand held the correct prediction in finger palm, ready to be switched in. The left hand picked up the cup and apparently dumped its prediction into the right hand. In reality, the cup wasn't titled enough for the paper to actually fall out, allowing the right hand to push its paper into view as though it came from the cup. This is the same concept as Hennig'​s card switch, albeit with a shallow tilt instead of glue.
