I'm ready to yell it from the top floor of the Deering Middle School so that all the world can hear: Marco Tempest is amazing! Forget fake sawing people into two pieces. Who cares about a never ending flower bouquet that turns into a bunch of scarves. Bunny in a hat, pssshhhh. They are so 2010.
Techno-Magicians are way better!
What is a techno-magician?
Basically, they are magicians that combine technology and magic. Marco Tempest is the only one I've ever really seen perform, but I plan on checking out more!
Since we do have a budding magician in our Genius Hour ranks, I thought his TED Talk- Augmented Reality, Techno-Magic would be a great talk to share.
Using sleight-of-hand techniques and charming storytelling, illusionist Marco Tempest brings a jaunty stick figure to life onstage at TEDGlobal.
Sit back and enjoy the show.
Try this at home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
