Magic + Magic = ?

Marco just sent me his augmented reality card trick movie and I immediately had to cover it. I think he did a great job. Exactly that is what I mean, when talking about ideas in 2009 and following. These days you will not develop the wheel or be the first to cook a meal with fire, but you can combine existing things in a new way. The augmented card trick is an invention and I am sure when it is implemented into the fascinating (commercial) show programme it will become an innovation, proven through market entry. And this is not magic, this is inventive talent.

    Not that somebody gets this or me wrong: we are talking about “1.0” and of course some post production magic… It´s a concept!

    there’s no post production :-)

    (I was a software developer for this)

    some behind the scenes software shots:

    and a how it’s done video coming shortly to show that it’s all working in realtime, etc.

    take care!!

      Hey Zach, thanks. So, did you use some “green screen” technique (the mat) to track the hands move? Obviously there are no trigger points or something. Would love to read your system set-up…

      And Sorry for my faux-pas. Lucky us we are operating with read-write media :)

  6. I am releasing a series of blog posts about AR that you might be interested in – – would love your feedback

      Hello Tom, I am looking forward to your series. I am very curious about your findings and will try to enter the – hopefully prolific – discussion.

      Best regards,
