There’s a loopback to Contact Juggling here, Zach credits his inspiration for ‘Magnetic Cards’ concept as’Magnetic Batons’ and links to Yuta & Okotanpe performing at Heso Revolutiion 2012.
On his website Okotanpe gives credit to the pioneer of magnetic baton, the wonderful French Contact Juggler Pich, who you can see performing with Magnetic Batons here.
Zach, recently shot a Japanese credit card commercial.
