Magic Spider - Pro Pack by Ian Pidgeon
A cool new smart phone app that merges the spectators own body with computer generated images to create a form of augmented reality that is incredibly realistic.
The animation and shadowing make it look like the spider is actually crawling across their hand. They can even feel him move because of the phone's vibrator.
He stops a few times on his way across the hand and the magician pokes him to encourage him to continue. Show how you can interact with Boris by sliding my finger under the phone to rub the spider's back. Boris really seems to be between the phone and their hand. You could never do this in real life. Too dangerous with a poisonous spider.
Then show how waving my hand over the proximity sensors on the phone make him come back. He runs back across the screen.
Take the phone back and ask them to try. When they wave their hand over the screen, they notice out of the corner of their eye, a realistic spider clinging to the back of their hand and they FREAK OUT!
That’s My Pet Boris!
