Every since I was a little kid I’ve always been fascinated with magicians. I remember always watching every David Copperfield episode that was on TV and enjoying watching people perform magic whenever I could. I even had my own magic kit as a kid.
Recently on YouTube I discovered a female magician from Russia. Her name is Ekaterina Dobrokhotova. I found this to be odd because in all my life I don’t think I’ve ever seen a female magician. It seems everyone I’ve ever seen was a guy so I was certainly intrigued and had to check out some of her videos. I’m sure there are other female magicians out there, but I’ve never come across them.
In her videos she mostly does card tricks, but the way she incorporates the tricks and music is quite awesome. Just the way she handles the cards is fun to watch. I would love to see her in person sometime. You can check out her website here.
To see her perform one of her tricks check out this video:
Be sure to watch for more cool stuff I find from the Internet.
So I’ve been slacking a little when it comes to my personal blog, but I’m really going to try to change that. Anyone that knows me will tell you that I spend the majority of my life in front of a computer. So I figure I might as well blog about some of the things that I come across online.
Today I was looking though my Facebook timeline and saw a photo for a “flying car”. The geek in me immediately perked up and I had to click the link to check it out. What I found out is there is the company based out of Massachusetts which has developed a plane/car hybrid. The CEO of the company says to think of it as “a plane that drives.”
The concept vehicle is a four-seat hybrid car with wings and can fly up to 200 MPH. You don’t even have to have a runway to take off. By using a megawatt of power the folding motor pods will lift you off the ground. Once in the air, the propellers on the pods will fold down to allow for cruising speed. When you are done in the air you can land the vehicle and then drive it like a car.
I am really excited to see if this actually becomes a reality. The car of the future that will allow us to travel greater distances with ease. The company claims that the vehicle will fly itself–you just tell it where it wants to go. How cool.
