MAGIC isn't real? How can this be?

Someone warn David Copperfield, because the cat's out of the bag: MAGIC isn't real. Maybe this is all one elaborate hoax propagated just to create amusing headlines, but a Korean research team has had a 2005 article in Science retracted by the journal. It turns out that the paper describing their technique, given the acronym MAGIC (magnetic-based interactive capture), was based on missing and/or fabricated data.
