Seeing: 30 Hands-On Visual Discoveries by the Exploratorium
Is that smile real or fake? Can you make an image of a light bulb appear to actually glow? Witness illusions like the "floating hot dog," or the "hole in hand," play with anamorphic mirror images, and turn 2-D stereogram designs into 3-D to find a hidden image. This book of hands, and eyes-on activities—a total of 30—are based on popular Exploratorium originated exhibits.
Great for keeping young minds busy during long road trips, and older minds happy with brain, and vision exercises.
