Now You See Me


This was not a film I was expecting to get inspiration from as it was not a “sci-fi” film of sorts. Instead this film was centered about a key concept in magic, “misdirection”, where the magicians distract the audience from their actual trick by showing them something completely different. Often the trick (or the switch) happens not during the “Abracadabra” but before or after. This reminded me of possible applications with our project Invisible Sound, which is somewhat an attempt to create a magical experience with technology. Perhaps our sound can be made invisible with misdirection, leading the users to believe that it is coming from one location when infact it is not.
