The original skeumorphic iOS was designed to make digital stuff more tangible and physical — but I'm not sure these amazing magic tricks were exactly what Steve Jobs had in mind.

We've seen illusionist Simon Pierro's iPad magic routine before, but he's back on super-popular US chat show Ellen with a whole new set of tricks. If you look closely enough, and rewind five or six times (shut up, I'm not obsessed), you can work out his sleight-of-hand — or, you can just accept that the latest FaceTime update included a patch for digital fluid transfer.
