Review:
Why does a curved line look straight? How are special glasses uses to spot counterfeit currency? Minds Eye presents a well crafted manual filled with loads of different optical illusions, which are rather complicated events, and the science behind them. The kit contains inexpensive props - prisms, colored cellophane, foils and cardboard lenses for example - allowing quite a range of experimentation. Young scientists will learn about the relationship between the eye and the brain and how color, depth and perspective are perceived.
