Wild West Tech

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Here's something probably worth keeping an eye out for.

The History Channel just ran a promo piece for their new series "Wild West Tech" which begins this Tuesday (March 30) at 10pm/9C.

Looks like they're going to devote an episode to "gambling tech", although the website doesn't say when. The promo showed a bunch of angry gunslingers catching a sharp at the table with a holdout up his sleeve.
