Marco Tempest iPod Magic: Deception
There is very little that captures the imagination of youth more so than magic. Being dazzled by a charismatic magician brings joy to those young enough to not understand the performers deception. Even as we grow older and understand what we saw as a child wasn't real "magic" but, rather well choreographed illusions, the fascination is still there.
Heck, Fox even dedicated an entire television special to revealing some of the magicians most dazzling tricks.
Marco Tempest, the magician in the video above, is the magician of the future. As an iDevice enthusiast seeing these devices used in such a unique and creative way is amazing. Tempest utilized a program called Multivid to trigger the synchronized playback of videos across multiple iPods or iPhones. Any number of MultiVid capable devices can be synched at once within an accuracy of 500 milliseconds. Tempest had the program developed specifically for use with magic routine. Tempest made the program available for free via the App Store as well. Just don't expect any help figuring the ins and outs of the program, Tempest has said he's not actively updating or providing customer support for the application.
