Any COMMERCIAL USE you ask..? 

How about an awesome table lamp for your diner...

How does it Work..? It's Magic..!

We are glad that you asked..! Well, if you want to dive into it a bit more to understand the workings behind the magic, lets detail the parts..,  

  • L.E.D strip 
  • O-Ring 
  • Microcontroller Powered Electronics 
  • Electro-Magnetic Solenoid - Actuator 
  • Vibrating Arm 
  • Muse - Feather Wooden Frame

Out of this.., LED Strip, Electro-Magnetic Solenoid and microcontrller Powered Electronics form the core of the device. At its fundamental level, the illusion (yes., it's not really magic) is caused by strobing the light at a frequency close to 80Hz and vibrating the arm connected to the solenoid at a slightly higher or lower frequency there by creating a blended slow motion effect to the eyes via aliasing.  

The wall adapter provides a 12 V DC power at 2 Amps to the microcontroller controlled L.E.D strip(1) and the Electro-Magnetic Solenoid - Actuator(4). The combination of the above two gives a spectacular slow motion movement to the Muse - Feather(6) or any light weight objects like flowers, grass blade etc.

The First Prototype

Safety  

The product is completely safe and shockproof. You can touch all the parts of the frame including the solenoid. You can even touch the object placed in the frame to feel the illusion and understand it better.

Risks and challenges

We are perfectionists and given the chance we are fully confident the project will be completed on time. Every plan has risks and challenges, we have done our homework, so the risks are minimal. We are working with some of the best people in the industry to minimize risks. By partnering with experienced manufacturers and logistics experts, we are prepared for pretty much anything and of course, we will maintain constant communication with our backers no matter what.

We have identified and locked in our manufacturers who will be able to ship on time, so you can enjoy your very own Dancing Frame before Christmas.
