The effect which today we call "Equally Unequal Ropes" was invented by Bob Carver c.1956, and won the IBM Originality Trophy in 1957. The judges did not believe that what he was doing was pure sleight of hand until he exposed the trick to them. It was based on the Quad Ropelets routine by Hen Fetsch (1955). Later, the effect, as performed by Paul Young at an MAES convention, was marketed by Gene Gordon (1958), who came up with the name "Professor's Nightmare."

Also invented: Progressive Coin Production
