Stuntman David Blaine’s next endurance challenge won’t let him eat, sleep or barely move, but he will be able to interact with fans through social media. On October 5, Blaine will risk electrocution as he stands on a two-story high platform in a metal suit and helmet surrounded by a million volts of electricity for three days. The event will be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube.  Satellite stations sponsored by Intel Ultrabooks in New York, London, Beijing and Sydney will allow users to interact with Blaine during the stunt by changing the colors and intensity of the electricity.  Blaine will also answer questions from fans on social media via a keyboard on the platform. It will be interesting to see how many people will tune in to Blaine’s first interactive stunt and how future events will handle live-streaming and interaction through social media.
