This Magician Does Strange And Wonderful Things With An iPad

The original skeumorphic iOS was designed to make digital stuff more tangible and physical — but I'm not sure these amazing magic tricks were exactly what Jobs had in mind.

We've seen illusionist Simon Pierro's iPad magic routive before, but he's back on Ellen with a whole new set of tricks. If you look closely enough, and rewind five or six times (shut up, I'm not obsessed), you can work out his sleight-of-hand — or, you can just accept that the latest Facetime update included a patch for digital fluid transfer.

On a tech sidenote: that looks like an iOS 6-ish UI, so I'm assuming that he's running some kind of jailbroken magic with an offstage assistant pulling lots of the digital strings. But that's no fun.
