Uses mirrored surfaces to create a 3-dimensional real image.

Description

The Mirage® uses mirrored surfaces to create a three dimensional life-like image. Place any small object in the Mirage®. Instantly, incredibly, it appears ABOVE it, in full three dimensions. Study this image from all sides. You can even see its reflections! You can shine light on it! But reach to touch it... your fingers go right through. Contradicting a lifetime of experiences, Mirage® punches holes through everything you've come to expect from reality and sensory perception. It is crafted and tested to exacting tolerances. Near perfect color duplication is achieved with optical surfaces just 5/1,000,000ths of an inch thick. 22.5 cm (9") diameter. It is one of the most baffling, attention-getting conversation pieces you'll ever own. Great for teaching optics! Makes a super gift!

Great 3D experience, but you can do a lot more with the bottom half and use it as a mirror. Many hours of fun.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

1-PS4-3
MS-PS4-2
HS-PS4-1

Students use the Mirage to test the Law of Reflection by shining a flashlight or laser at an angle through the opening. It also uses the Law of Reflection to create a 3D instant hologram when a small solid object is placed inside the Mirage mirror chamber. Amazingly, when a laser light is directed at the hologram, it appears to bounce off the image, yet a finger can pass through the image.
