The amazing disappearing Omnia HD
Man makes video using invisible phonecamera
Samsung only launched the Omnia HD in February, but the phone’s already disappeared – sort of.

The firm’s created a video in which a man films himself in a mirror using the Samsung phone. However, halfway through he briefly covers over the phone’s rear-mounted camera lens – blocking your view - and the device just disappears.
Pretty mediocre magic, you might say? Well, after he removes his hand the man is, somehow, able to continue shooting the video as though he were using an invisible Omnia HD.
The firm’s promised that the movie was shot in one take and without any editing or computing effects being applied afterwards.
How was it done? Samsung wants you to guess.
i reckon the camera he is holding isn't doing the filming. he's got another one concealed in his jumper with a hole just big enough for the camera.
Two rooms, and a twin. Pretty obvious actually.
It was a lot funnier and more impressive
when Charlie Chaplin did this trick in The Floorwalker nearly a hundred years ago.
Cutting edge stuff.
Maybe the Samsung logo is printed on the phone backwards?

Wrong. Look at the video again, and see the samsung logo on his phone, it's flipped. If it wasn't a mirror, it would show "samsung" as normal.
