Is there an app for that? Shinya the magician integrates the iPad into his street magic routine
It takes the meaning of technical wizardry to an entirely new level.
And while Apple might like to boast that its new iPad is magic, it has taken a Japanese street magician to really show what it can do.
‘Shinya’ has posted a video on YouTube which shows him using a combination of a pre-programmed iPad and a series of cleverly timed props.
With admirable sleight of hand, Shinya manages to produce smoke, a dove and a whole host of optical illusions while unconcerned pedestrians on a Tokyo street wander past in the background.
Billing it as 'a history of communication' he even manages to weave in some good old-fashioned fork-bending
His impromptu show has had more than half a million views on YouTube and has been posted on numerous gadget and technology websites.
But sceptics - and those familiar with viral marketing campaigns - will note that the video ends with a long lingering shot of the Apple shop behind Shinya when he has finished his show.[endtext]
