Capitalizing on the wild popularity of Apple Inc’s iPhone and iPod Touch, Hottrix.com has created several video magic effects to perform on this multi-use, take-with-you-everywhere device; meaning you always have some magic in your pocket.

Downloading the files is simple enough and the folder includes both the video to load onto your iDevice in addition to an instructional PDF that’ll help you do so (if you don’t know how to) and how to perform the actual effect.

Most of the effects I received weren’t exactly magic effects but rather clever visual gags to surprise your friends (like drinking a beer that magically appears in the screen and pouring it into your mouth.) The most magical of the effects (and the sequence requiring the most practice) allows the performer to magically make popcorn within the screen, pluck one out of the screen, and then pour the rest into your hand or mouth. It’s a cute effect and surprisingly disarming for people who don’t realize your motions are in synch with a video.

Hottrix has recently added more video effects for the iDevices, many of which are more than just visual gags and more of a magical effect you could perform.

While intended for off the cuff performances, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to incorporate some of these gags or magic effects into your regular performances.

My only qualm with these effects is a small one but worth noting. Hottrix made the effort to create a set of videos specific for either the iPod Touch or the iPhone based upon the respective devices’ icons and layouts. Due to software updates, it has become possible for users to change and or rearrange the icons. If you reorder the buttons on your iDevice, just be weary that your audience may notice a discrepancy between the device’s home screen and the one that appears when it’s actually the video pretending to be the background. It’s not much of a big deal, but something worth mentioning.

Bottom Line: If you see an effect or visual gag you’d be interested in performing, go for it. The effects are simple, cute, and to the point – and they’re ready to go when you are.
