Marco Tempest is best known for exploring the boundary between technology and magic. In this video, he creates the illusion that he can control a swam of drones with gestures and his voice. Reality is a bit more complicated.

It's still magic even if you know how it's done.

Doug, thanks for the link -- that's a lovely video.

It led me to another Marco Tempest which I also loved:

They're both great illustrations of how much more importance performance skill is than method. I think it would be obvious to most people what his methods are in both videos, but his performance is so skilled that it ends up being truly magical.
