Anti-Gravity Mirror

Back to Exhibits

This exhibit demonstrates symmetry in mirror reflections. With the mirrors unique configuration, all sorts of impossible tricks seem easy. A visitor stands with the edge of the large mirror bisecting his body. From the perspective of an onlooker, the person still looks whole because of the symmetry of the human body. The person in the mirror will appear to be able to lift both feet off the ground or make their head disappear.

Age Range: All

Scientific Discipline: Physical Science


Experience the illusion of lifting both feet off of the ground or making your head disappear!
