Magician Marco Tempest Creates iPhone Illusion Show [Video]

Marco Tempest, the self-proclaimed world’s “premier technoillusionist’, has engineered his very own iPhone app in order to create the “magic of tomorrow” using the smartphone.

In a short performance posted on YouTube, the ‘virtual’ magician uses three synced iPhones to create several tricks of the eye as he discusses self-deception.

Unlike some professional peers, the illusionist is open about the tools of his trade. Tempest admits to using an application called ‘MultiVid’ to link the devices.

Available for free, the app “designed for economic playback of video content in multi-screen synchronisation applications,” was created by the showman himself.

The modern-day magician will be bringing his subtle blend of technological tricks to the UK when he performs at the TED conference in Edinburgh in July. [Marco Tempest via The Telegraph (UK)]
