iPhone ‘magic’ tricks. How do they do it?

3 07 2007

This guy is standing outside a NY Apple Store on launch day demonstrating some pretty cool tricks on his iPhone. X-Ray camera mode, some cool shake and zoom effects, and a little old fashion hide-the-coin magic trick. These features are obviously not included in an out-of-the-box iPhone.

SO how does he do it? It could be an elaborately produced video file that is playing on the iPhone’s video iPod, and he just narrates and pretends to interact with the preset effects produced in a video app like Adobe After Effects. That’s my bet. What do you think? Is he really MAGIC? The geek version of David Blaine? Ha!

I don’t own an iPhone, but has anyone used the hotrix.com apps? Do they actually interact with the accelerometer, or are they just videos? I’m guessing the latter because the timing doesn’t always match up perfectly, and that would have to be a pretty elaborate program to work with the accelerometer.

its just a video guys. ur soo confused

Yeah, its all just a video. Ive never used it, but everything is strictly timed. My assumptions were confirmed when i watched a few people preform these tricks on youtube and noticed the popcorn video was always the same. Still looks fun though, and cheap!

If you watch closely, he doesnt really touch the applications. You see him hover over the screen and some applications ‘run’ before he even gets close to the screen. Its a video but in really good quiality.
