Decorate your holiday tree!
Warning! Only under adult supervision
- Star-shaped wooden frame;
- LED strip;
- two translucent mirrors;
- adhesive pads.
Glue an LED strip to a star-shaped frame and attach translucent mirrors to the frame with adhesive pads. Turn on the LEDs and bask in their beauty!
A semi-transparent mirror lets in some light and reflects the rest. The light from the LEDs inside the portal is reflected in the mirrors multiple times, and each reflection is slightly offset from the previous one – this creates the illusion of depth in the image!
A similar experiment can be found in the “Infinity Portal” kit from the MEL Science subscription!
