    That's impressive. Watched it with the sound off though, which on second viewing may have been more impressive! :P

    Cool video, he's got those freaky pointy magician hands. I bet he does that all the time when he eats his sandwiches!

    i'm assuming all three of them just played videos and he had to time it all to come together, as you can see in certain spots (like the image of his hands) where he slows down until the image moves. not bad, but after a minute or so you get the idea and it gets a bit boring

    Yes, and then when the butterfly flies out of the screen and into his hands, and then flies back into the screen, you can see his 'sleight of hand' to get the butterfly out of camera shot

    Totally agree - techies are the wrong audience for this, nothing more than proof he has good timing! Although the part where he "fans" the iPods outward from the speaker point was an impressive bit of balance...

    that's not really augmented reality, that looks as though it was all done post production....unless of course augmented reality will read a card and then project a little image of yourself on to a table.
    being a magician, he will be all about making things appear real when they aren't. so that will look as though its all being viewed from his headcam when in actual fact he done a basic card trick and then post production added all the bumph to make it look like it was augmented

    I agree, although it is possible it was done using AR. If not it was still very well done, syncing the 2 videos and the effects based on the positioning on the head camera.

    I must admit i am not as impressed with these kind of tricks compared to "live" ones, especially after seeing those shows where they tell you how they are done, its annoying when the big reveal is "we lied about it being live and cut the video"
