Video Of The Week - Is This Magic?

By

Can you outsmart Professor Richard Wiseman at this fun 'Prediction' game? Chances are you will not be able to - And it's not because he is an amazing magician.

Richard Wiseman is actually a psychologist with a passion for science. He has developed a new area of science, that he calls 'Quirkology', whereby he uses mainstream methods to investigate unusual topics and human behavior.

The reason the video makes him look so 'magical' is because he has figured out how most of us think and can 'predict' our moves within the guidelines he provides . To watch other fun videos by the professor, check out his site www.quirkology.com.

              Hater it's not a guess not a prediction though. It's just because u can't go diagonal.

              That's awesome! I don't like magic tricks because they are used to fool people with fake doings. But like this video, it is also used to entertain!

                  What he did is that he did the math in his head, that no matter what in X amount of moves you wouldn't of landed on this finger. It's not fancy psychology, or magic, it's math. Pure math.
