Hi Everyone 🙂 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. Purchasing items from the links on these pages will help support my IG page of science and wonder. Buy physicsfun toys on : https://bit.ly/2MOjFET (Official websit 🇺🇸) physicsfun toys on amazon : https://amzn.to/36RRxt0 Follow on Instagram : @physicsfun This video contains : 👉🏻 Bismuth Diamagnetic Trap Levitation: neodymium cube magnet trapped between two pieces of strongly diamagnetic bismuth crystal. 👉🏻 Copycoder: clever use of an array of cylindrical lenses to scramble and unscramble large font messages- a modern “secret code” toy. 👉🏻 Microscope Hologram: This photopolymer hologram is so realistic one can look through the eyepiece! 🔬Using a halogen bulb as a point light source the microscope in this vintage 1980s reflective hologram pops from the page with stunning detail- and with the eye positioned just right one can see the magnified image of a small insect. Unlike photographs, holograms are recordings of the interference pattern of light waves. My favorite hologram in my collection, and it looks even more stunning in person! 👉🏻 Gliding Globe: a low center of mass sphere is suspended within a liquid filled clear acrylic sphere. The inner Earth globe maintains its orientation as the outer shell rolls producing this unexpected behavior. 👉🏻 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL @physicsfun 1) Magneto Aerolux Xmas: Wishing all in advance a luminous and Merry Chirstmas with a 1930s Aerolux neon discharge bulb powerd by a functioning antique 5 bar telephone magneto generator made in 1910. 2) PCB Tree: green circuit boards in a 3D tree design with a simple flashing LED circuit. 3) CineSpinner Hula Santa 4) Spinning Snowflakes Convection Candle: a simple heat engine- rotational motion resulting from the convection of hot air due to the candle flame of a tea light. 5) Scandinavian Chimes*: a simple heat engine- sound and motion from the resulting convection of candle flame. 6) Infinity Bubble Lights: a classic since the 1940’s- colored methylene chloride encased in glass vials boils from the heat of a low wattage incandescent bulb. 7) Starfire Sphere: the inside surface of this sphere has a texture that consists of a repeating pattern of rounded triangular prisms that refract the light of the 24 LEDs inside. Powered by three C cell batteries the unit has circuitry that phases the LEDs off and on in three clusters. 8) Optical Glass Cube Light Sculpture: multiple internal reflections create intricate and delicate patterns within this crystal glass cube with beveled prismatic edges and concave lens shaped indentations on three faces. 9) Tea-Light Floating Engine: a candle powered super simple steam engine. The engine is just a coil of copper tubing, filled with water. 10) Holiday Pyramid 11) Fiber Optic Galaxy Lamp: a vintage 1970s fiber optic lamp with a chrome “UFO” base. 12) Diffraction Spectrum Candle: Here a thin plastic diffraction grating surrounds the flame in this rainbow producing design. The rainbow spectrum is produced not by refraction like that of a prism, but instead by diffraction, where light waves deconstructively and constuctively interfere. 👉🏻 BONUS CLIP Background music by : YouTube Audio Library 1) Cosmic Drift – DivKid 2) Bonfire – An Jone 3) Icelandic Arpeggios – DivKid 4) Book The Rental Wit It – rage 5) New Day – Patrick Patrikios 6) Interstellar Mood – Nico Staf

  1. 225° – You don’t have to calculate this one. Just imagine a transparent octacon. The orange arrow points to the left if the octagon ist turned 180°, so it must show to the right, if the octagon is turned another 180°. If it is tilted the same way as the blue arrow, then its pointing 45° downward. Another turn of 180° will have the orange arrow pointing to 225°. My first answer was 135° too, but that’s before the octagon is turned another 180°.
