Focus Description:

Show the audience a small wooden box with a drawer. Pull out the box and hand it over to the audience for inspection. Remove the beads from the assistant's neck, put them in the box, then insert it into the box. And then pull it out again. Everyone will see that it is empty (Fig. a).

Focus Beads disappear and reappear

Approach the assistant, turn her over her left shoulder, and when she again faces the audience, the beads will be on her again.

Focus secret:

The assistant was wearing two pairs of beads. An elastic band is sewn to one string of beads, which allows you to pull them under the apron. From above, the elastic band is fixed under the collar of the dress. When the beads are pulled back, they are fastened to a button that is sewn onto the dress under the apron. Turning, the assistant imperceptibly frees the string of beads from the button. Bot so they reappear on the neck.

The secret of the disappearance of the first string of beads lies in the arrangement of the box and box (fig. b). The bottom of the box is glued with a strip of cloth to its front wall. At the back end of the bottom there is a metal latch plate, and at the bottom of the back wall of the box there is a small rim, behind which the latch goes. At the same level, a small hole was drilled in the back wall of the box, into which a hairpin carnation enters: it is attached at the same level to the back wall of the box (Fig. c).

Focus Beads disappear and reappear

When the box is pushed into the box, the nail enters the opening of the box and pushes the latch plate and the bottom falls down. The beads in the box are in the palm of your hand, since the box itself has no bottom. When the drawer is pulled out a second time, the bottom automatically rises into place and the latch again goes over the edge in the back of the drawer.

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

Luminous Carpet - a smart guide in space 02.06.2015

Lighting and LED specialist Royal Philips has teamed up with floor designer Tandus Centiva to create Luminous Carpet smart carpet.

Thanks to the built-in LEDs and the possibility of programming, the carpet turns into a means of communication that can convey to visitors all the necessary information and make it easier to navigate in an unfamiliar space. For example, the carpet will help you find your way out of the building, indicate the nearest coffee area or restroom, and simply greet new visitors, the company said.

Various colors, shapes and sizes of Luminous Carpet carpeting allow it to be used in the interior of both small office spaces and hotels, as well as places with high attendance - museums, airports, stadiums.

Overall, Philips says the Luminous Carpet solution is a revolutionary new way to interact with consumers and employees, so it can be used by organizations across a wide range of businesses. At the same time, according to a number of forecasts, the positive dynamics of growth in office space rental around the world (up to 4% - according to Jones Lang LaSalle) opens up good market prospects for this technology, the company believes.
