If you could magically turn your iPad into a much bigger tablet, would you?

Fuhu is promoting its giant new Nabi tablets. (They're available in 24-, 32-, 43-, 55- and astonishing 65-inch versions.) To that end, it made a new reality-style video featuring magician Adam Trent, one of seven stars in stage show The Illusionists, pretending to transform random people's iPads into Nabis, outside the glass-box Apple store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

It's good, harmless, not-at-all earth-shattering fun, mostly offering a new twist on classic magic tricks, like Trent pretending to pull strawberries out of the popular video game Fruit Ninja—because duh, the resolution is just that good.
