Slow Dance makes things move in ways you never thought possible. For all those who love mystery, beauty, and wonder.

4 UNIQUE ILLUSIONS.

1

SLOW DANCE

In this mode the object appears to move in slow motion.

2

SUPER SLOW DANCE

The object appears to move in ultra slow motion.

3

DOUBLE TROUBLE

Looks like the object starts as one, and splits into two parts before reforming.

4

POP AND LOCK

The object looks like it jumps through space, like a 1930s slow motion movie!

USING SCIENCE TO CREATE MAGIC

Slow Dance combines high speed strobe lights with high-speed vibrations, creating a stunning visual illusion.

With strobe lights blinking 80 times a second, your eyes cannot even see that they are blinking - the light looks continuous.

By synchronising the strobes to the vibration of objects (created with the magnets and central electromagnet), we create the visual illusion of those objects moving in slow motion.

ORIGINAL ART BY JEFF LIEBERMAN

When my closest friend from college Eric was marrying my new friend Emily, I considered it the time to give them a once-in-a-lifetime gift. They were both dancers, and so I immediately thought about creating something where two ‘opposites’ danced with one another.

I had been playing for years with techniques that allowed me to use high-speed stroboscopy to make things look like they were moving in slow motion. But after weeks of hand-designing dozens of objects that might vibrate in interesting ways, I was stuck — none of them had the wondrous impact I was searching for.

Somehow they didn’t surprise me enough as a viewer to create impact. I went for a frustrated walk around the block of my office thinking “What is missing? Why can’t I design something that looks incredible to see moving in slow motion?” Lost in thought, a branch hit me in the face. I looked at the branch.It was a Eureka moment.

That pine branch was more beautiful than anything I as a person could design, and had evolved over millions of years to vibrate in the wind. I looked all around the environment — branches, flowers, feathers and more — with a sense of awe suddenly realizing that nature had designed millions of artifacts more beautiful than I ever would. And using what I knew, I could make them look like they were dancing impossibly, in slow motion.

GOT QUESTIONS?

How loud is it?

Incredibly quiet. The loudest thing is the object itself moving through the air, and the magnets can be adjusted to change the 'volume' of movement, so if you make the movement very large, it will create more noise. We can't hear a feather from 10 feet away in a quiet room. For the techies out there, we estimate it's around 30dB.

Is it safe to touch?

Yes! Please touch it! If you touch the objects you will feel the secret that your eyes cannot see - that they are vibrating very quickly (80 times back and forth every second). It's a fun way to discover the illusion. The electromagnet is totally safe to touch as it is all at very low voltage and strength. It's fun for all ages.

What kinds of things can i put into Slow dance

Since the slow motion effect depends on vibrating objects very quickly, light objects that vibrate repeatedly work the best. So far we’ve found the best things are feathers, plants, and flowers. That said, we’ve also seen custom origami, bent wire, even googly eyes(!) in the mix, and look forward to many more surprises!
