Aha, Illusions! Promotional rent video

It looks like everything is actually happening, but is it really? Created and built by Science Centre AHHAA, this new interactive family-friendly exhibition presents you with numerous amazing optical effects and deceptive tricks that look downright magical, but are actually 100% scientifically sound.

Visit „Aha, Illusions!“ and find out:

-how and why your vision can be tricked in the first place
-how magnificent 3D images are created with the help of smoke, LED lights etc
-how easy (or hard?) it is to paint pictures or wander in the labyrinth – through a mirror
-how images completely change their appearance when you look at them from different anglees
-how water can flow backwards
-how you can paint wonderful pictures and patterns on an interactive fog curtain.

AHHAA Science Centre Foundation

AHHAA was established as a special project of the Department of Research and Institutional Development of the University of Tartu (founded in 1632). AHHAA started its activities with a laser show in front of Tartu Observatory on September 1, 1997, and has had a strong and stable development ever since. The purpose of AHHAA is to introduce science to everyone. Using interactive and entertaining methods and the scientific excellence of 370-year old Tartu University, we try to overcome fear and prejudice towards learning.
