apport

An apport is an object allegedly materializing during a séance. Believers see apports as signs or gifts from spirits. Skeptics see them as evidence of conjuring.

Good magicians and good mediums can produce objects seemingly out of nowhere and nothing. They can also make objects seem to disappear. When a medium does this it is referred to as a deport.

See also deport and teleportation.
