Gustav Kuhn: The Science of Magic

Gustav Kuhn is the director of the MAGIC lab at the Department of Psychology at the Goldsmith University of London, where he uses magic to study a wide range of psychological questions, around consciousness, attention, perception, magical beliefs, deception and free will.

He was invited to speak at Google about his book Experiencing the Impossible: The Science of Magic. (Available from fine bookstores everywhere). The video starts with a performance of the Cups and Balls and leads into a discussion of blindspots, eye movement and misdirection.
