Inspired by Magicians of the 19th Century

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”

Johann Wolfgang

 von Goethe

Smoke & Mirrors VR

“Like Magicians of the 19th Century,  our goal is to recharge the childlike sense of wonder magic can create through our VR experience!” - James Laudermilk   


Appearing in/on Oculus VR May/June  of 2019!

A first ever in Magic & Virtual Reality!

Ok, here is some incredible use of technology using some Magic! Sure, magic has been performed on Cell phones, IPads, Apps, and even in 360 video but this is a first in Magic! I perform for the first time ever, two magic tricks using Reality & Virtual Reality! How do I know for sure it’s a first you ask? Because I developed the program for Oculus VR myself! No one can copy these tricks in Reality! At least not yet! A first ever in Magic!

The Magic of Virtual Reality Magic!

Famed magician, Teller, once said: “At the core of a successful trick is an interesting and beautiful idea that taps into something that you would like to have happen.” Unlike other digital forms of entertainment, Smoke & Mirrors VR's magic environment and experience taps into the childlike sense of wonder in its player and their audience!
