Hi Everyone ๐Ÿ™‚
Welcome back!

I get asked often: “Where did you get all this stuff?” My goal is to share the real magic of science and physics- and to this end I will update here (and in my store) suggestions on where to get some of these toys, kinetic art pieces, and scientific curiosities for yourself.

This video contains :

๐Ÿ‘‰ Photicular Book: the foremost in lenticular image technology produces these looping motion images that look like videos on a computer screen. This amazing book of 8 astonishing moving images. moving images use Kainen’s patented process where a specially processed image slides under a thin film of lenticular lenses.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Gallus Lamp: The Flame slants and ROTATES in this unique Swiss design. The glass of the lamp channels the convection and three inlets in the brass base direct the inflow of air into a slow swirl. Lovely engineering and physics of thermodynamics.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Fresnel Mirror Array by exploratorium : 360 mirrors arranged to reflect to a single focal point in this exhibit entitled โ€œAll Eyes on Meโ€. A mirror version of the Fresnel lens, where each concentric ring of mirrors is slanted toward the center, with the lager rings slanted more, such that the full assembly acts like a parabolic mirror.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Transmission Hologram: vintage hologram from the early 1970s. The 3D image is only made visible by backlighting the plate with the coherent light of a laser.

๐Ÿ‘‰ CineSpinner Pencil Topper: motion animation from Moirรฉ pattern effects of constructive and deconstructive interference.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Moirรฉ Motion Card: a hummingbird springs to life in this motion animation from Moirรฉ pattern effects of constructive and deconstructive interference. Opening and closing the top of this SmartMove card slides an image of lines printed on transparent film over a second image to produce the short loop.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Thermochromic Mug: Pour up some hot coffee and watch the crew of the USS Enterprise leave the ship and rematerialize on the planet surface with this color-changing physics mug. The color change employs leuco dyes, thermochromic chemicals that have two reversible forms, one colorless.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Optical Trick Portraits: Hold a flat mirror up to this painting of Charles III, Duke of Lorraine, to reveal his daughter Christina in this 1593 work by Ludovico Buti. A very early example of lenticular images, Gioco Ottico hangs in the Galileo Museum in Florence as part of the Medici Collections.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Mirror Anamorphic Cup & Saucer: endangered animals series- Thomson’s Gazelle by Luycho. The reflection in the 24 linear mirrors of the cup assembles the scrambled image on the saucer. Art meets math and physics!

๐Ÿ‘‰ Chaotic Pendulum: adding magnetic forces to gravity gives this pendulum chaotic motion- not random, but very different each time it’s launched.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Strandbeest Mini: A fully working model of artist Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest kinetic sculpture which features Jansen’s linkage- a unique leg mechanism which converts rotary motion of a crackshaft into smooth walking motion.

๐Ÿ‘‰ TV Rock: the crystals of the mineral ulexite act as natural fiber optic image conduits. This sample came from a little rock shop in Boron CA, home to one of the largest boron mines in the world. If you take the Rio Tinto Boron mine tour you get a free TV rock!

๐Ÿ‘‰ Tapered Mirrors Kaleidoscope: the unique design of this teleidoscope uses three mirrors to create an image of a geodesic sphere.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Designer Kaleidoscope: the beautiful symmetry of multiple reflections. Tiny glass beads and a collection of shiny objectsย  provide the viewing material in this side-lit precision kaleidoscope by Carol Verde-Paretti.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Fumed Spiral Marble: glass art intersects with the physics of optics and materials science in this gold and silver fumed marble by Colby James Boyd

๐Ÿ‘‰ Vortex Marble with Gilson Opal Sphere: glass art intersects with the physics of optics in this spectacular piece from lampworking master Raven Copeland aka

๐Ÿ‘‰ Minโ™ก-3D Illusion Frame: two patterned acrylic sheets overlapping create this illusion of depth that seems a few centimeters below the surface.
