Sony Pictures Television is launching a YouTube channel with magician Jason Latimer that will fuse illusions with science. The channel is called Impossible Science.

In an exclusive first look at the channel, Latimer shows viewers how to use weights to make it look like a pencil is floating. Check out the video above.

The series and channel is being produced through WonderFirst by Jason Latimer and Dustin Gould in association with Sony Pictures Television. Stacey Crawford is the series producer.

Nolan Bushnell featured in acclaimed Game Doc, “High Score” on Netflix

Pac-man was conceived in a pizza shop. Interchangeable game console cartridges were created by a black man. These facts and more I discovered after spending a good part of my 8-hour sleep requirement watching Netflix’s game documentary, High Score. A limited six episode series of ~40 minutes each.

From the second the Netflix documentary starts, it is almost a race to the end. Fast paced. Thrilling. Leaving you wanting more. Just like a well developed game would.

A beautifully narrated story is woven in each story with insanely fluid art direction and animation revealing the lives and times of some of the most famous game creators and the roles they have played in the now bustling, cult-like gaming culture of the world. From the legendary arcade game, Pac-Man’s random conception by Toru Iwatani- in a pizza shop- to dispelling preconceptions of violent games being a millennial phenomenon, the documentary is Mario on Nat Geo Wild in a Tesla.
