TED Talks : Marco Tempest on deception, magic, and truth

A quick one this week, but one that's interesting both for what it says, and how it says it.

Marco Tempest is a magician who is fascinated by the applications of technology to engage the mind - and lead it down a particular path. In this TEDTalk, he uses cutting edge technology tools to talk about the power of truth, lies, and deliberate deception - and how that affects our art, our relationships, and our lives. That's an awful lot to cover in 6 minutes, but he'll leave you with a lot to think about.

Enjoy! (And if you like this one, he's done two others: Augmented reality, techno-magic and A magical tale (with augmented reality)
