    I`ve always liked magic and magic tricks, but the whole secrecy bit really puts me off. They say that if you know how the trick is done, you won`t be impressed by it anymore. I don`t think so. If I knew how a trick was done, and then saw it carried off flawlessly, I`d still be pretty damn impressed by it. Nothing more annoying than some smirking magician saying "a magician never reveals his secret". Yeah, whatever. Then, I guess I`m not paying to see it then.
    That said, cool video.

    "Does that work when your there viewing it in person? I figure it works better on a 2D screen than in person using your two eyes and depth perception???"

    Yeah, it works. Me and my friend where out one day, and went into Menkind, I saw it, and tried to pick up the little pig (in the store, on the mirror thing) and the shop person laughed, and showed me why I couldnt pick it up...
