Jaquet-Droz Automaton Workshop

Posted by Michael on June 9th, 2017

It has been a big Video Friday with lots of different magic, but mentioning the upcoming giant robot fight got us thinking about how closely magic was once tied to automatons, which are kind of the first robots. Here is a a feature on the automaton work of Jaquet-Droz, a 18th century watchmaker, from The Watches (because watchmakers often doubled as automaton and magic prop designers/builders).

Enjoy and have a great (and of course safe) weekend!

Rich Ferguson’s Fidgetting Without Fidget Spinners

Posted by Michael on May 22nd, 2017

I’ll admit it: I have a (couple of) fidget spinners. One of my daughters was asking me just the other day how I got through school without a fidget spinner. I told her that I drew on everything and perfected my coin sleights because teachers got wise to the deck of cards (probably why I don’t do card stuff to this day)!

Rich Ferguson obviously got through school without a fidget spinner, too, and he posted this great video of flourishes with cards and pencils so kids today can “fidget” without a spinner! Catch more of Rich over on his YouTube page or visit his website.

Checking Out Gatlinburg With Mentalist Erik Dobell

Posted by Michael on May 19th, 2017

Last year, the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area was afflicted with some terrible fires, but the good folks down there are bouncing back and there is still plenty to do. Mentalist Erik Dobell’s latest video shows him not performing as much as playing tourist at the 2017 Beans and Cornbread Festival, which in all honesty sounds kind of awesome. You can see more of Erik in his normal role of mentalist over on his official website.
