OPTICAL ILLUSIONS and Electronics at their BEST...
I made it myself with only a breadboard, Arduino Nano and my skills. WannaDuino STYLE.
You will not believe your eye`s, the LEDS and the Coil are tricking your mind. JUST WATCH....Has to
do with the HIGH FREQUENCIES.
AND OPTICAL ILLUSIONS
The principle is simple but brilliantly implemented. It is a fusion of art, science and technology.
A device vibrates the objects placed within the frame at one frequency and strobes light
on the objects at a slightly offset frequency. The difference between the frequencies called the beat frequency creates an optical illusion.
If the vibration rate is just a little bit faster or slower than the strobe light, then you will get a slow
motion effect whose speed is proportional to the beat frequency.
If the objects vibrate at the same speed as the strobe light, then the objects will seem to be motionless.
If the beat frequency is high, you may get seemingly random jumping of
the vibrating objects.
For our project, an Arduino Nano/compatible micro-controller is used to excite an electro-magnet to vibrate the objects placed within the frame. It is also used to pulse the LED strips to achieve the strobe light effect.
