What is iPad magic?
iPad magic is a sophisticated fusion between expert sleight of hand and cutting edge technology. There are two elements to iPad magic. Firstly, the device to be used and secondly the kind of magic performed. With technology evolving and advancing almost on a daily basis, there has never been a time with so many digital devices on the market. Although Duncan primarily uses iPad’s and iPhone’s to create mysteries, wonder and jaw-dropping miracles, he does also use other tech devices and tailors each performance to the client’s requirements.
Recently Duncan was hired by Huwawei to promote the launch of their new Huwawei Mate 20 phone. Unlike an iPhone, android devices use different operating systems. As a result, Duncan and his tech team crafted some bespoke apps and new handlings of magic to incorporate the Huwawei android device. He then created a signature piece for all the delegates to get involved in, using their devices too – resulting in a WOW! moment and party finale incorporating the newly launched mobile phone.
“Duncan customised his apps for our event. Using our logos and promo material he performed some incredible tech magic for us. 100% recommended!” Huwawei
Since this launch, Duncan has gone on to advance his skill set and regularly uses tablets and android devices not on the iOS operating system at events and private parties around the world. But it’s not just iPhones, iPads, tablets and android devices where Duncan displays his commonly known ‘iPad magic’. He has been pushing the boundaries of technology and magic fusion for the last 10 years. Subsequently, he has gone on to develop bespoke magic using drones and augmented reality technology.
Using motion commands on windows or android operating systems, Duncan can achieve many of the core principles of magic and mind reading, integrating technology into his performances. This allows him to create more and more bespoke, never-seen-before iPad magic.
Using the combination of magic and digital technology, he is able to vanish objects from the phone and reappear then in either his hand or the spectators hand. This is known as vanishing and production. He can incorporate teleportation into his act. This is where an object moves from one place to another – often from the iPad to a different place or vice versa. Penetration is another magical effect which features in Duncan’s act; making an object visibly pass through the iPad or android device. Fifthly, Duncan has in the past, included levitation of the iPad into his performance at the request of the client and also some restoration effects.
An example of a restoration effect, here may include restoring the perfect structure of a Rubik’s cube underneath the camera of a iPad. Finally, Duncan uses tech magic and augmented reality to create unbelievable feats of mind reading. It is the hybrid of mind reading and technology, that showcases the tangible technology in our digital age and also the technology of our mind, and begs the question to which is more superior in 2020!
“Unbelievable iPad magic! He made predictions, pulled out tennis balls, money, business cards and lights. Astonishing and highly visual. Book him now!” David Seaman
In fact Arthur. C Clarke wrote: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” This is the point we have reached.
Some examples of Duncan’s unique and exciting iPad magic have been detailed above. Other examples may include pulling a tennis ball or wrist watch out of Ebay, Amazon or other online retailer websites. Other examples of what iPad magic is, include taking a Skype call with a friend and pulling objects out of their hand whilst on the phone. Duncan goes on to interact with them, and the person on the other end is seen to take objects off of him. This magic is truly cutting edge and unique to Duncan.
