Very clever, I wonder what kind of nozzle he is using. 8-)

I'd have to see it in person and up close to believe it. The air would make it spin, but as it's striking the side of the tape obliquely, I'd think that removing one's hand would simply cause the tape to be propelled away from the air stream.

there's probably air blowing upwards from below where we can't see.

use your brains you numpties! the air flowing over the top of the roll creates a vacum below the roll in the same way that an aeroplane wing does and creates uplift! so much so that the air flow holds the roll in the air! THE END !

@ jej_knowles
airplanes don't create vacuum's below the wings, lol
you might want to check up on your theory

Basic physics, bernoulli principal, air moving over a wing at a higher pressure than the air under the wing causes lift, (suction upwards), and is the basic principal of flight. A similar class room experiment is done with a vacuum cleaner and an egg.

nothing to do with vacuum's?
Hold a playing card infront of your mouth directly in front of a burning candle! when you blow you will find that the flame will be sucked towards the back of the card due to the created suction! what is sucction? read it and weep!
Suction is the flow of a fluid into a partial vacuum, or region of low pressure. The pressure gradient between this region and the ambient pressure will propel matter toward the low pressure area. Suction is popularly thought of as an attractive effect, which is incorrect since vacuums do not innately attract matter. Dust being "sucked" into a vacuum cleaner is actually being pushed in by the higher pressure air on the outside of the cleaner. :*

jej, you almost have it right...

"The speed of a moving fluid has an effect on the pressure exerted by the fluid. Bernoulli's Principal is the concept that as the speed of a moving fluid (liquid or gas) increases, the pressure within that fluid decreases. The principle states that the total energy in a steadily flowing fluid system is a constant along the flow path. An increase in the fluids speed must be matched by a decrease in it's pressure."

air rushing over it causing a low pressure area drawing it up.. the fact that its spinning so fast keeps it from just turning over n falling out of the air stream

I am machinist and with air hose you can hold any object that have curbed end i do this when i am bored items like screwdriver is all about finding right spot to blow air under curb upward.

I had to try this out for myself when i seen it, it's real cool, just don't do it outside cause when the tape hits the ground it's gone
