Art takes on many different forms. In some cases, it can be a natural part of the world around us that is used in an artistic way. In other cases, however, people were able to manipulate a two dimensional surface in order to create something that is truly unique. They may come in the form of a drawing on a piece of paper or a painting on canvas but in any case, it is something that we marvel over, especially if we don’t share that talent. As you are about to see, there are also cases in which people take [More]
When we were in school, we may have done a wide variety of science experiments. Some of them were to show how we interacted with the world around us and others may have been so that we could see the elements which were sometimes unseen. Yet another type of experiment, and perhaps a favorite for most people, involved the way that the mind can trick the body into believing that it is seeing something that doesn’t actually exist. Although it is not always considered a science experiment, these types of optical illusions can certainly be a lot of fun to [More]
Magnetic forces exist in the world around us, although most of us don’t really give them much thought. The fact of the matter is, however, if it weren’t for the magnetic forces that exist on a worldwide scale, our survival would be extremely limited. Those magnetic forces help the earth in so many different ways that it is difficult to list them but one way you will appreciate is that it keeps the cosmic rays from bombarding the earth and putting an end to life. The interesting thing about magnets is that the forces do not only exist on a [More]
When most of us see fire, we really only focus on the flame but the fact is, there is a lot more going on than what you may first consider. Of course, the flame is the hottest part that exists but the smoke is also quite hot as well. It is an underrated part of the burning process, but one that gives us the opportunity for a rather unique experiment. You only need a lighter, a candle and something to hold the candle. As the flame of the candle is burning, it is also putting off smoke. The smoke may [More]
When we were children, we may have played with a wide variety of items. For some of us, it may have been marbles and for others, dominoes. Of course, today, many children play with electronic devices. There is one thing, however, that tends to be remarkable to children, regardless of when they grew up. It is a gyroscope and, although it is a relatively simple device, it can provide hours of enjoyment once you begin using it. A gyroscope is a relatively simple contraption. It is a wheel or a disk that is spinning and the access on which it [More]
If you are looking for an enjoyable mind game, this one is going to be right up your alley. It involves a simple puzzle that is made out of 5 pieces and fits into a frame. You can even make this puzzle very easily out of some cardboard or, you can make it out of wood if you would like something a little bit more permanent. The puzzle begins by showing the board completely full of the five pieces without any space left over. You move some of the pieces around and suddenly, there is a little square of space [More]
Some types of optical illusions are easy to do and you can often do them with items that you have around the house. At other times, they may involve some type of digital image or perhaps a piece of art that you have to view on the computer. In the case of this particular optical illusion, it requires a specific mirror kit but you can purchase one online and the effects that it causes are absolutely amazing. This type of mirror creates a hologram effect that is impossible for you to see beyond. It actually uses a concave mirror with [More]
Have you ever seen 3-D street art? It is rather popular today, and it involves drawing something that may not make a lot of sense to someone who is looking at it, unless they are looking from a single perspective. You’re about to see similar in this video, but it is done on a much more interesting scale. Rather than seeing something on the sidewalk that appears as if it is three-dimensional, you’re actually looking at something that appears to be floating in midair. When you first start the video, you will see the cube and it looks like you [More]
When you look at an image, you would expect your brain to process the information that it receives from your eyes and to give you the reality of what is in front of you. When you look at optical illusions, however, they are designed to do the opposite. You are still taking in sensory input through the eyes and transmitting that data to the brain but what the brain sees may be quite different than what you’re actually seeing. Many people are confused as to how these types of optical illusions work. In reality, it has to do with light [More]
There are many gifts that you could give to a young child but one that is appreciated by many children and remembered for many years is a toy train. It doesn’t matter if it is a complex train or if it is just one that is rather simple, it helps to spark the imagination and many children find themselves playing with a train set for hours. It is the perfect gift to give your child when you want them to do something other than play on the iPad. Of course, there are also other ways for you to give your [More]
When we were young children, we often drew on the sidewalk with chalk but nobody, outside of our parents, really cared what we were drawing. Typically, it was either writing a few friends’ names or perhaps drawing a hopscotch board and that was the limit of our artwork. As you are about to see, however, some people have taken that artwork to an entirely new level and it is awesome. When you use perspective, it is possible to turn a two-dimensional object into a three-dimensional piece of art. You will see it clearly presented before you in these 3 Dimensional [More]
Best of drawing, photoshopped pictures and amazing real trick photos.
