Magician Pours Beer From iPad (VIDEO)

Do our eyes deceive us? Is this man actually pouring beer from an iPad?

That's what it looks like in this video by German magician and performance artist Simon Pierro, who manages to pull of some impressive technological theatrics. Watch closely as the beer level on screen lowers the more Pierro pours.

According to Pierro's website, he has a degree in economic engineering (a useful skill set for making beer-dispensing iPads?) and has appeared on numerous German television programs. He's won several awards, too, including the 2004 Siegfried & Roy Award in Las Vegas.

Pierro has plenty other examples of what he calls "digital magic" on the site, like pouring milk on a television and getting the onscreen person wet.

How does he do it? Watch the below video and make your own guess.
