You call? :lol:

But really, that is something neat! I noticed the little "nodes" on the magic, and have to say it's very clever how this was done. Another thing to point out is, while it is projecting onto the magic, it was considerably fluid with the movements and tracking.

My concerns if this became mainstream and purchasable (in the form of the magic with strings):
-will people need to be taught to not force the magic to move in a way that will break it? (i.e. strings break, tiles displace, etc)
-what happens if it became disassembled? Will the tiles need to be put together properly (assuming it is like that in the final product)
-will a projector need to be attached to out heads somehow?
-and will they be cheap?


I like this, but if it is a magic with strings... I see breaking of it happening almost imminently.

Since the video has no audio, anyone mind providing a text description?

It's just an image being projected onto a blank Magic for the demo... I was hoping it was actually the real deal...

I was a bit suspicious, too. How can you be sure?

Watch to the end. They have a projector set up with a few tracking cameras to play a prerecorded video onto the object.
