It's going to be a lonnng week (especially if you're a Mavs fan who stayed up late) so why don't we ease into things slowly? Here's a little low-impact technological magic that combines quality timing and slight of hand with, well, iPods.
I personally think this sort of magic might be a little more impressive than just the plain old fashioned kind, because not only did the magician have to learn the physical skills, he also had to figure out iPod programming. What's your take on it? Is this the new direction of magic or an abhorrent abomination destroying the art?
At 3:17 you can cleary see the wire on that space shuttle. Epic Magic Fail! ;)
sleight of hand... not slight.
No programming skills necessary here. You create a few videos, making sure the timing is right, and you've got a simple trick. One this complex and long takes quite a bit of video work, but that's all it is. None the less, it's still impressive.

From the title, I thought this was going to be about a new product called the iBra.
Anyway, very impressive and clever new twist on close up magic.
I like it!

Or, in keeping with the spirit of the above posts; the ladder.
Interesting entertainment, but not magic. Now, if the paper butterfly at the end turned into a live butterfly, that might be a magic trick.
Meh. It's an entertaining presentation, but not magic by any stretch of the imagination. He does a couple of little sleight of hand switches in there, but nothing impressive. If I made a PowerPoint presentation where one thing on the screen changed into another, would that count as a magic trick? This is only a little more impressive than that.
I appreciate the creativity and skill that went into doing this, but I can't call it magic.
