Camera Obscura

Think It... Make It

Did you know we see the world upside down? Light refracts through your eyeballs making everything you see turn upside down.  However, your brain reads those images and flips them right side up. But what if you were only interested in seeing what the eyeballs see?  Mr. O shows you how to make a "camera obscura" - a device which allows us to see the world upside down!
