An Augmented Reality Projection Tracking System Actually Makes This Magician Seem Cool

Magicians seem to have fallen out of favor in recent years, but Marco Tempest, the "Virtual Magician" has something going that could change all of that: augmented reality.

Tempest's "Magic Projection" system utilizes a laptop, a small projector, a PS3 Eye Toy, LED tracking markers and, of course, his bad ass proprietary software. As you will see in the video, the effect is pretty spectacular. In fact, his whole gadgety, virtual approach to magic is impressive. Check out his webpage for more tricks. [Marco Tempest]
