An illusion of flying

What you can do here
You need another person for this experiment.
Stand on the platform facing the upper side of the model so that your left leg is in front of the mirror and the other leg is behind the mirror. The closer you keep your body on the edge of the mirror, the better. Raise the leg in front of the mirror, lean forward and spread your arms. The other person should look at you from a distance of several metres and say what they can see. They should find a spot where the effect is most visible. This is the best place to take a photo.


How it works
The mirror gives an impression that both your legs are raised instead of just one. You look as if you were flying.


Interesting facts
