Video: Astounding Illusion with Reconfigured Tiles

Here’s a strange illusion you might enjoy. Do you know how this is done?

… this is one of those videos where I have a theory on what’s actually occurring, but am not certain.It’s straight-up, Harry Potter-style sorcery, right? Right? The mind-blowing video of blocks being reconfigured (with an extra block each time) is entitled “Azulejos” and was posted by magician Norberto Jansenson.

See cbsnews.com

I’ve always had a mild interest in magic. My brother-in-law was a street magician or mentalist. He died in Las Vegas over 10 years ago in 2008 from mixing alcohol and some kind of medicine. I didn’t know him well but he did some interesting tricks for some intersting people.

Jason Scott, dubbed by the Vegas media as mentalist to the stars, died unexpectedly July 15 at his Summerlin, Nev., home. He was 33. Cause was still being investigated.Scott had been performing for the last two years at the Playboy Club at the Palms Las Vegas following a six-year engagement at the House of Blues Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

He earned a reputation for performing closeup mind-reading demonstrations and psychic illusions for such stars as Drew Barrymore, Clint Eastwood, Melissa Etheridge, Paris Hilton, David Spade and Kiefer Sutherland. He performed at celebrity birthday bashes for Steven Spielberg, Sting and Boston Celtics co-captain Paul Pierce.

He also toured extensively, performing for such diverse corporate clients as Anheuser-Busch, the Fiesta Bowl and the Texas Bankers Assn.

  1. This tile trick is clever. I’m pretty sure it’s based on “The Missing Square” puzzle, but this guy set it up so he could produce a “missing square” three times. The size of the tiles didn’t change, but the areas of the spaces between them did.
