Are you smarter than your iPad? Magician Paul Gertner poses the question, "Are we becoming too reliant on technology?" Through magic, illusions, and audience participation, Gertner illustrates how modern technology is increasingly doing our thinking for us.
Reality bytes. With the clever use of his cell phone and iPad, Gertner examines illusion versus reality, and how the mind can fool us. He uses magic tricks to let the audience get inside the mind of a magician and see how he manipulates their minds without their realizing it, much like in politics and commercial advertising.
Hey, watch this! Recommended for adults and children over 12, Gertner uses special effects to read people's minds, talk to the deceased, and prove that assumptions really do make an ass out of you and me.
