This Halloween, the PrankvsPraank duo from NYC created a real-life Aladdin carpet and freaked people out on the streets of Manhattan over the weekend.
This year’s Halloween shenanigans were taken to a whole new level by Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat (beating JayZ & Beyonce’s “coming to America costume and The Game’s Jidenna-Classic man ensemble) by pulling off a ‘real-life’ Aladdin-inspired magic carpet stunt.
The video went viral online few days ago and it features Wellens dressed as Aladdin and freaking out people in Manhattan. Aladdin’s magic carpet appeared to fly and thus became many people’s favorite Halloween costume this year.
Before we tell you about all the engineering involved and how the PrankvsPraank duo from NYC created this remarkable similar real-life Aladdin’s magic carpet, let’s take a look the video that is becoming viral on YouTube and social networks:

Talking about the science and mystery involved in the real-life Aladdin’s Magic Carpet, they used an electric skateboard as the base. This skateboard called the Boosted Board is charged up during the ride using regenerative braking.The electric skateboard can be steered like a usual skateboard and it also works with a Bluetooth remote. The duo made a frame out of plastic piping, attached it to the board and covered it with cloth.
