New Video 👉🏻
Hi Everyone 🙂
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.
Purchasing items from the links on these pages will help support my IG page of science and wonder.

This video contains and involves phenomena in each clips :
00:02 Squaring a Circle: from one particular point of view this wireframe sculpture looks like a circle, from another it’s a square!
(illusion, geometry, physics, ambiguous object, math, math toy, optics, optical illusion, 3d printing, science is awesome)
00:33 Primed Siphon: liquid moves until the water levels are equal- curious combination of the effects of gravity, molecular cohesion, and atmospheric pressure.
(siphon, pressure, atmosphere, atmospheric pressure, physics, physics toy, fluid dynamics, science, bernoulli, hydrostatic, hydraulics)
01:01 Polage Miniatures: art with polarized light using polarizing sheets and birefringent cellophane to create changing forms and colors.
(polarizer, polarized light, optics, kinetic art, electro magnetism, polage, science, linear polarization, Austine Wood)
01:35 Balafire “Electric Flame” Bulb: the flexible 15 Watt carbon filament in this bulb oscillates back and forth producing a resemblance to a flame.
(flicker bulb, electric flame, Amperes Law, magnets, magnetic field, magnetism, electro magnetism, filament, light bulb, flicker flame, physics, physics toy, novelty bulb)
02:00 CMY Color Cube: physics and psychophysics of color perception demonstrated with this acrylic art object. (physics, psycho physics, color modle, CMY, subtractive color, color space)
02:33 CMYK Coasters: physics and psychophysics of four color printing demonstrated with acrylic slides that assemble to reveal Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”.
03:02 RGB Color Addition: three LED light boxes demonstrate the additive nature of colored light. Mixing Red, Green, and Blue to create Yellow, Magenta, and Cyan.
(physics toy, RGB, RGB color, optics, shadow, color addition, visual perception, color perception, wavelength, frequency)
03:33 RGB Ocean: A collage of sea creatures fills this artwork by Carnovsky design studio which is actually comprised of three layers of images which can be seen separately by viewing through color filters- blue, green, and red.
(physicsfun, absorptive, monochromatic, hue, hue lights, trichromatic, rgb color model, trichromancy, color vision, science)
04:12 Illuminature Book: three books in one- the supplied absorptive gel filters transmit only a narrow range of frequencies (red, green, and blue here) and the inks on the page that do not match with the color range of each gel are revealed as dark images.
(physics, absorptive, mono chromatic, hue, hue lights, trichromatic, rgb color model, trichromancy)
05:18 Admiral FitzRoy’s Storm Glass: a weather forecasting device developed by the famous Captain of the HMS Beagle (voyage with Charles Darwin).
(storm glass, meteorology, weather, baro meter, chemistry, precipitant, thermodynamics, thermometer)
05:33 Magnetic Tensegrity Table: This CNC machined tensegrity sculpture replaces the center tension member (chain) with a pair of attracting neodymium magnets. Made from 6061 aluminum and nickel plated steel chain, the “Impossible Table” is the creation of Kevin Sayers. The table can support up to about a kilogram of mass, and makes for a nice display stand for my Mova globe of Pluto
(physicsfun, physics toy, tension force, tensegrity, buckminsterfuller, kennethsnelson, compression, structural engineering, floating compression)
06:08 Bismuth Crystal Pendent: element 83 on the periodic table, bismuth becomes crystalline when melted and cooled.
