Magician Turns an iPad into an Endless Beer KegBy: Chris Gabbard - May 22, 2012
German Magician and performance artist Simon Pierro has stumbled onto the most exciting use for an iPad yet: an endless supply of beer. Watch as he wows pub goers at the renown Hofbraeuhaus in Munich with this awesome party trick.
But that’s not the end. He has a few other tricks up his sleeve with the iPad.
“Simon – If you would be a computer – I would marry you as well!” Siri makes the same grammatical mistakes that he does, strange. I would be a computer for Siri.
Simon Pierro is becoming increasingly well known for incorporating electronics in his shows. He is often hired for trade shows to give demonstrations. By incorporating real life interaction with video screens, he make the technology appear more connected to the real world.
I saved this for the end, because I hate to be a spoil sport, but you can clearly see the tube that Pierro uses to pour the beer hidden in his sleeve. If you watch the videos at the point where he is first grabbing the tab, you can see him hook something up to the top of the handle.
This screen cap is at exactly 1:03 of the first video. Sorry.
