Benjamin makes numbers dance. In his day job, he's a professor of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College; in his other day job, he's a "Mathemagician," taking the stage to perform high-speed mental calculations, memorisations and other astounding mathematic stunts. It's part of his drive to teach math and mental agility in interesting ways, following in the footsteps of such heroes as Martin Gardner.

TEDxOxford is organised by University of Oxford students, aiming to bring together the young minds of tomorrow's world with the movers and shakers of today. TEDxOxford is kindly sponsored by Neptune Investment Management -

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

pi was calculated long ago calculators existed but by people. no matter if this is fake or not
1] ask for two digit numbers
2] repeat until multiple of 3
3] square it = multiple of 9
4] have fun finding which number was left out
1) ask for two-digit numbers
2) repeat until you have one that is a multiple of 3
3) square it so it becomes a multiple of 9
4) have fun finding the numbers that were left out

There are loads of tutorials on the internet for calculating the day you were born. I can't do it as quick as him, not even close, but if you follow the process you should be able to do it in 10-20 seconds or so. All the other calculations use similar number pattern methods. There are a few books knocking around that show you how to do this stuff as well. Obviously, it will take practice and some mental agility.
