Apollo Robbins: The art of misdirection

Now here’s a TED talk that was just recently added to the video collection. Apollo Robbins is hailed as the greatest pickpocket in the world. I’ve always had a fascination with misdirection and what some people call magic. This session was truly amazing. You need to watch it all the way to the end for the strangest twist you didn’t likely see coming.

The really cool part about it being on video is you can rewind and replay the parts you completely missed and possibly learn a bit. But I love his overall question, if you could control someones attention, what would you do with it? Let me know in the comments.
