Amazing Physics Toys/Gadgets 1

Hi Everyone 🙂
Welcome back!

I get asked often: “Where did you get all this stuff?” My goal is to share the real magic of science and physics- and to this end I will update here (and in my store) suggestions on where to get some of these toys, kinetic art pieces, and scientific curiosities for yourself.
Purchasing items from the links on these pages will help support my IG page of science and wonder.

This video contains :
👉🏻 Ambiguous Object Illusion: repost of this incredible design by Kokichi Sugihara of Meiji University in Japan, the inventor of this illusion and art form.

👉🏻 Perpetual Motion Simulator: this marble machine device does not break any laws of thermodynamics- but it sure looks like it! When I first saw videos of this piece of kinetic art I thought the effect was due to video editing, but in fact the base contains a power source and very clever mechanism (I used compass for clue/partial reveal). An amazing piece of art by William Le crafted from stainless steel wire, doussie hardwood, and undisclosed internal components. A remarkable addition to my collection! 

👉🏻 Monochromatic Room @exploratorium: a photo of colorful San Francisco is illuminated by a very narrow frequency band of light, with a wavelength of 589nm- the characteristic spectrum of sodium vapor lamps at low pressure.

👉🏻 Copycoder: clever use of an array of cylindrical lenses to scramble and unscramble large font messages- a modern “secret code” toy.

👉🏻 Vortex Marble: glass art intersects with the physics of optics in this lampwork art form invented by Kevin O’Grady circa 1994- and this marble bears his signature mark on the back.

👉🏻 Scale Solar System

👉🏻 Scale Solar System Sticker Set: one of the most amazing facts about the planets in our solar system is their relative sizes. Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and dwarf planet Pluto included for comparison- all in their current order (sometimes Pluto is closer than Neptune), and mounted here on a sheet of polycarbonate. On this scale, Neptune would be about 5 kilometers away from Mercury! 

👉🏻 Moondrop: using magnets and Lenz’s Law to imitate free fall times on the Moon and Mars.

👉🏻 Plasma Arc Lighter Physics: dual arcs of plasma exceed 1100 C (2000 F) on this flameless lighter.

👉🏻 Halloween Neon Glow Bulb: the pumpkins, with a high voltage between them, glow orange with light from the emission spectrum of the excited neon atoms of the low pressure gas within the bulb.

👉🏻 Uranium Metal: at Z=92 protons, uranium is the largest naturally occurring atom one can extract from the Earth.

👉🏻 Oil Drop Timer: immiscible liquids (colored oil in kerosine) in two connected containers. The oil in each container falls through a small drop forming hole in between clear walls of acrylic.

    I was like "impossible" , but i see there’s an extra energy source in that thing, a MAGNET 🙂 … smart

    Oh wow, a perpetual motion machine. And to think my Physics teacher said there could never be one. Had something to do with friction.

  4. craig79792000 on May 13, 2022 at 12:27 pm

    Has to be a way to tap into the energy without slowing it down, send it to a battery to charge and get free energy for life.

  5. Rob Price on May 13, 2022 at 12:28 pm

    I read all of the negative reviews on Amazon about the Perpetual Motion Simulator. It’s a great idea, but is just a loud, barely functional scam that everyone states is a waste of money. I’d take the video down.

    What’s one new thing you’re learning this month?
    Any school and college students here? Where are you from 🌍?

  7. Tjoppy on May 13, 2022 at 12:29 pm

    Amazing stuff! And the music? 5 stars *****

  8. Assordante on May 13, 2022 at 12:31 pm

    That first one is magic or alien technology. It’s one or the other. That’s not possible for use normal, everyday folk.

    3d video with very good quality

    Bubble quiz: use centrifugal force?

  18. MR on May 13, 2022 at 12:40 pm

    What would happen if you touched the plasma arc made by the lighter? I assume very severe burns instantly?

  19. Jerri Kangasniemi on May 13, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    The solution to most problems is either spin it or thwack it. In this case, spin it. It’ll force the heavier water into the outer bulbs and the air will be displaced into the center bulb.

    How was he holding the uranium if it was radioactive

  21. Karell Tulod on May 13, 2022 at 12:43 pm

    Physics is Amazing

  22. EvilStreaks on May 13, 2022 at 12:43 pm

    Kokichi Sugihara’s ambiguous object was cool. Stickers of the Sol planets was a weird thing to showcase on a physics video, though. I had some of those oil timers in the 90s. The little dots eventually fail to merge back together and it looks like this unsatisfying wad of oil foam.

    Woahhh!!! Thought I was going crazy when I saw one of my vortex hand pendants! Great videos!

    music is -5000

  29. Kev Robinson on May 13, 2022 at 12:56 pm

    spin it

  30. Flick McBic on May 13, 2022 at 12:58 pm

    for that second toy
    couldnt you make the ball hit a paddle hit a fan which hit a turbine?

  32. Max Chambers on May 13, 2022 at 1:02 pm

    Spin it

  33. ABC DEFGo on May 13, 2022 at 1:04 pm

    Nice brainteaser! I would give a try to spinning this so the liquid would gravitate towards ends of a bubbled tube.

  34. Sukanto Pradhan on May 13, 2022 at 1:05 pm

    bro how to buy

  35. SiljCBcnr on May 13, 2022 at 1:07 pm

    I was stuck on the first one already for like 2 minutes.. only when you turned it in front of the mirror I saw that the edges are kinda wavy in hight. Really funny

  37. Bentonius Eukaliptus on May 13, 2022 at 1:07 pm

    spinning the thing should come in handy

  38. Irfan Bokaul on May 13, 2022 at 1:08 pm

    Does the marble moves like this infinitely or it comes to an end

  39. WristyArtist400 on May 13, 2022 at 1:08 pm

    Bg music -1000000000000000

  40. Psychot 68 on May 13, 2022 at 1:08 pm

    i was gonna say, spin the whole thing, water/oil/liquid has more mass than the air and would be affected more by the centrifugal force than the gas inside, thus the gas would be forced to the center…..unfortunately i accidentally saw someone else’s post saying the same thing, so i don’t feel i can claim this wholely as my own answer

  41. Bart Hennin on May 13, 2022 at 1:10 pm

    Great…where do I buy this stuff??

  42. Krystal Brooks on May 13, 2022 at 1:11 pm

    rating of background music from 1 to 5? I’ll give it a rating of 0 to a negative number.

    Shake it.

  45. I'd rather be... on May 13, 2022 at 1:15 pm

    Spin. 🙂

    What a relief it’s not streamed live, I don’t if I could stop watching

  47. vasdishuh on May 13, 2022 at 1:16 pm

    Never trust a thing that’s mounted on a wooden socket…
