Hi-end gadget on Kickstarter grows quickly – very unusual project, which gathered together more than a thousand supporters. Amazing Frame called ‘slow dance’ makes objects placed inside move in an unimaginable way. It seems to slow down the current time. The effect that the observer sees, is called slow motion in the video editing. And for the video it is quite normal beautiful effect. But when the physical objects that you can touch, move as if time has changed its usual course, it may seem that there was some magic.
Of course, everything is much easier and this phenomenon is explained not by high technology, but by physics. The observed pattern, it’s just an illusion created by a stroboscopic light source and vibromechanism, set at the base of the frame. Generated vibration forces move an object in the usual way, but it becomes visible only when strobes flash. In one second, 80 such outbreaks occur, so flickers are not visible for the human eye, and highlighted objects movements slow down in time.
Device can operate in different modes, changing the visual effects of motion. The project has found its fans on Kickstarter. Miracle ‘slow dance’ frame was pre-ordered already by several hundred people. Currently, you can buy ‘slow dance’ fot up to 249 US dollars. Expected date of dispatch is March 2017.
