Imagine learning the secrets behind the greatest illusions of all times. Sci-Tech Discovery Center, Frisco’s leading family-friendly cultural and educational destination, will host the world premiere of Eyellusions beginning Saturday, September 26, 2015. The one-of-a-kind exhibit will debut here in North Texas to reveal the neuroscience behind mind-bending illusions and ambiguous phenomena that have blown minds for centuries.
The exhibit premieres this weekend (Sept. 26) at Sci-Tech Discovery Center and will run through January 3, 2016.
There are 20 installations to browse, including:
The incredible Zoetrope: 8 feet wide pre-film animation device where 12 wooden horse sculptures appear to be running.
The Alice in Wonderland Ames room: Ames room where guests can enter and look big or small depending on their position in the room. The whole display is inspired by the revelations in David Day's Decoding Wonderland book.
Time machine: Using a pepper's ghost effect, guests enter a "time machine” and seem to disappear before the audience.
Movie theater: Vintage-looking theater with a stage for magicians to preform shows. When a live performance is not scheduled, a short film called "Rescue on Mars" will be playing. It will emulate old cinema techniques and show viewers just how simple these practical effects can be recreated at home.
The dress: A Victorian version of the infamous black and blue (or white and gold) dress that "broke the internet" will be displayed. Guest will be able to play with the light intensity and discover what makes it change color.
