Magic download (video) by Arthur Benjamin (29.95)

Some of the most unique and entertaining skills you’ll ever learn, taught by one of the world’s best practitioners.

Combining the words “math” and “magic” is often the quickest way to make many magicians disappear. But, just like the nearly 1,000 magicians that gave him multiple standing ovations at Magifest, Dr. Arthur Benjamin is about to permanently change how you view mathematical magic.

Fooling & Entertaining

During his standout lecture and gala show performance at Magifest, Art Benjamin proved how genuinely fooling and entertaining mathematical magic can be. He followed these amazing sessions with an intimate lecture that dove deep into these robust concepts and garnered rave reviews. While only a select group got to experience this special workshop live, you can now get a front row seat from home with “The Human Calculator”.

This exceptional almost two-hour download will make you forget everything you thought you knew about math-based magic. You’ll join Art for a fascinating journey through his most cherished mathemagical secrets and discover how to blur the line between math and magic in ways that will astound audiences of any type or size.

Anyone Can Do It

Not a math whiz? No problem. These routines are within the range of any magician. Even those who have never considered the possibility of performing mathematical magic are invited to explore the endless possibilities it holds.

Art Benjamin is like the cool math professor we all wished we had in school. He makes the impossible seem not only possible, but also accessible. Beyond explaining the core methods, he explains why they work. This context is the crucial ingredient needed to ensure you walk away confident that you can actually perform these effects.

You’ll learn impressive routines like how to quickly square 2, 3, and even 4 digit numbers, as well as new methods for knowing what day of the week someone was born on based on their birthday and powerful techniques for memorizing Pi. Of course, you can’t talk about math and magic without touching on the Magic Square and Art’s unique twist will make you fall in love with the classic plot all over again.

Most importantly though, “The Human Calculator” shows you how to present mathemagical magic in a way that is entertaining for your audiences. This is strong, practical, compelling magic you’ll love performing and your audiences will love watching.

Even if you’re skeptical about the idea of combining math and magic, we guarantee you’ll walk away from this amazing video with a newfound respect for the versatile skillset. Download and dive into “The Human Calculator” by Art Benjamin today.

This video is of the workshop from Magifest 2024. I can't begin to tell you how amazing Dr. Arthur Benjamin is with numbers. I am feeling so much smarter with basic math because of this class. The Magic Square is so much easier with his help. You will look like the smartest magician.

One of the best downloads EVER. Absolutely fascinating from start to finish by a great communicator and not a card trick in sight!!



Arthur Benjamin is a Master of Mathematics!!! He is Incredible.
The material covered is merely touched upon . Followers will have to search out more books which he mentions during his talk.
It is mindboggling to watch him but not what I would consider entertaining...IMHO



Fantastic video! Will I use his magic square, no. I do one I prefer but his magic square definitely has a load of entertainment value if you don't mind repeating a number or three.
The Any Day calculation - Incredible! I will use it.
And, even if you don't use the math, the entertainment value is TOPS!

Excellent teaching methods!! I loved the method for the use of the magic soon as I finished typing I will be using the new well spent. Thank you






Great lecture from a master, very entertaining throughout.
Very well taught and easy to understand.
5 stars.
Dean james.



I saw Aurthur Benjamin perform at a conference of math teachers many years ago. Not only is this guy a genius mathemagician, he's also a stellar entertainer and an all-around nice guy. I give this download an unconditional 100% positive review (I'd give it a 110% review, but Dr. Benjamin would probably correct me on
that one).

  • Evan asks: Is this Art's lecture from this past MagiFest?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: This is the workshop that was on Sunday.
  • David asks: Is the day of the week effect the same as calendar calculating on his secrets of mental math dvd or is it a different version?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is similar but you get more of an in depth look at how to know the exact day someone was born and more!
  • Paul asks: Why does the video say that there were a few dozen that got to learn from him live but the written add says nearly 1,000 magicians that gave him multiple standing ovations at Magifest. that math doesn't add up. ;-) please have your video and copy make sense or it feels a bit manipulative. Best, Paul

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The few dozen were in the workshop at MagiFest (which you'll see in the video) and the 1,000s of magicians gave him the standing ovations at the gala show the night before.
  • Ricardo asks: The magic square works for dates in the day/month/year format?

    • 1. Art answers: The magic square will work for any 4 numbers in the top row. Typically it is month/date/year but you can choose your own order.
