Magic Door 2.0
|"The Magic Door" was an educational TV show in the early 70's in Israel which aimed to|
|teach kids how to be safe in the street. The show used magic and science-fiction to convey|
|its message, demonstrated by a big eye with a screen inside it that showed the outside|
|world in real time. This 'eye' was located at a magician's store. When a dangerous|
|situation occurred, the magician's store went haywire and the magician used a magic wheel|
|to pan over the streets to find the location of the danger. Once located, the magician|
|used a magic bell to make the person in danger appear in the store instantly.
|30 years later, the concept of live surveillance cameras has become a common phenomenon,|
|as well as the ability to locate people using global positioning.
|"Magic Door 2.0" examines the evolution of these concepts and the shift from science|
|fiction into reality.|
