    Custom built robot prank with subtle magic twist...

    Hey folks, this is not quite magic, but a great optical illusion prank of sorts. The fitting for this robot of cardboard was very fun to build. I figure magicians would dig it. It folds open and forward at the waist and allows me to step in, slide in my upper body and arms, then stand up... therefore closing off completely sealed up. It's pretty cool in person. The arms and legs are hinged. The head rotates.


    When the "robot" (me) backs into the space provided, it becomes a stack of boxes. I thought you magicians would appreciate the subtle addition of those upper items above my arms staying in place once I come running. Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIB6yIl7DGo

    Should have said, "Put down my son!" when they pick up the box, robots don't go Arggh!

    I like the guy who didn't get scared and picked up the head though, and nice job on the costume itself, very convincing.
