Focus Description:

Take a teaspoon in your hands, hold it between your thumb and forefinger, from your gaze the spoon bends 90 degrees.


Two prepared spoons.

Focus secret:

It consists of two prepared spoons. The first consists of two halves connected by a ring to each other. The second spoon is bent at an angle of 90 degrees. It is necessary to take stainless steel spoons. In no case should you take aluminum, as they are very soft and bend easily. Start by paying attention to your hands. In your right hand you have an "ordinary" teaspoon. In fact, you have a spoon in your hands, consisting of two halves. The fact that it is cut is not visible, because the place of the cut is hidden by your fingers - thumb and forefinger, creating the illusion of a whole spoon.

For convenience, you can drill holes in both halves of the spoon, pull a fishing line or ring through them. Pay attention to the fact that both halves are movable and can be connected to each other.

So, you have a spoon in your hands. Under the influence of your "magnetic" look, it begins to "bend". All you have to do is open your thumb and forefinger just a little, and the ends of the spoon drop down, creating the illusion of bending. A spoon bent in advance is in the left hand, and consisting of two halves - in the right. Join your hands, overlapping your right hand with your left hand, fold the parts of the cut spoon in half and replace it with a bent spoon, which you can give to the audience for verification.

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 ... >>

iPhone 6 will be assembled by robots 07.07.2014

Foxconn's program to equip its production lines with robots is nearing its final stage. Initially, 10 robots will be installed. The first devices that Foxconn will trust machines to assemble will be the new-generation iPhones.

According to a company representative, the launch of robots should take place in the near future at one of the enterprises where Apple products are produced. As Terry Gou emphasized, first of all the company is going to use robots for the production of products of the "apple" company. Perhaps the iPhone 6 will be one of the first such products.

Foxconn will initially install 10 robots called Foxbot to replace humans. Each such robot will be able to assemble 30 devices a year. The cost of the robot, depending on the functionality, will be 20-25 thousand dollars.

Foxconn representatives first announced plans to equip their production lines with robotics in 2011. Then Terry Gou said that 10 thousand robots already operate in their factories, and by 2014 their number is planned to be increased to 1 million units.

How many robots are currently present at Foxconn's facilities is unknown. But it is clear that they will not be able to increase production capacity to the required value: in June 2014, the company announced that they were going to hire an additional 100 thousand employees to assemble new iPhones.

Be that as it may, Foxconn expects that replacing people with machines will significantly reduce costs. In addition, the transfer of a number of operations to mechanisms will provide an opportunity to relieve people and, as the company believes, will help improve working conditions. Today, Foxconn employs more than 1,2 million manual assembly workers. The company repeatedly fell under the scope of various human rights organizations due to exceeding the maximum permitted working week (in China it is 49 hours). But that's just one aspect of Foxconn's not-so-clean reputation. In May of this year, it became known that some of the company's employees received multimillion-dollar bribes in exchange for lucrative contracts.

Announcement of the iPhone 6th generation is expected on September 25, 2014.
