TVShow S01E12 Magician's Assistant (Jacob)


Practicing prestidig...prestidigiti...illusions requires one to take another in to one's confidence...or...

The assistant makes use of an optic to discretion between light and dark then store and reference the variance for a pass-fail search. The mechanical function is operated by an Arduino Uno and communicated by our resident artificial automation Jacob.

Filmed with Hypnosis and Droid Razr

Update
Seeing as it was noted in a comment, the card coincidentally at the bottom is NOT the card Jacob chose if you look closely. I am no hack...see what I did there?!

Far longer than was anticipated -- even with the occasional stuttering edit, how ever, this is science, people; various incarnations of God would greatly disapprove and I was just born bad. Hail our dip shit digital over lords.

While carving a pleasant little pumpkin for the children to find glee and adulation, I accidentally swallowed a pumpkin seed. Laced with Nature's poison, I succumbed to it's decay as neurons tangled, my skin tensed, my blood boiled, I changed. I awoke much later to find this wretched thing before me, unaware of how I built it or why. I am cursed...or...

A rushed build for All Hallows Eve which left improvements like a more generous smoke tray, refined blower, water pump, ambient sound and FLAMES, aborted.
