Imagine 1 million volts of electricity aimed right at you. Sound insane? Not to illusionist David Blaine.

Wearing a mesh-like suit and helmet, Blaine has made himself the bull's-eye for his latest performance.

The three-day event, called "Electrified," started Friday on Pier 54 in New York.  

There is an interactive element to this hair-raising stunt. Using computers, audience members in New York, Beijing, London, Tokyo and Sydney can control how much power is directed at Blaine.
