Â¿Magic for a PixeloscopeÂ¿ is a one hour show conceived to be represented in a theater scenario that merges mixed and augmented reality (MR/AR) and full-body interaction with classical magic to create new tricks. The show was conceived by an interdisciplinary team composed by a magician, two interaction designers, a theater director and a stage designer. The magician uses custom based hardware and software to create new illusions which are a starting point to explore new language for magical expression. In this paper we introduce a conceptual framework used to inform the design of different tricks; we explore the design and production of some tricks included in the show and we describe the feedback received on the world premiere and some of the conclusions obtained.
Date of Conference: 19-22 Oct. 2009
