Virtual Image

SKU Code: REMZ01B

The Virtual Image consists of two identical concave parabolic mirrors. When an object is inserted near the centre of the mirror below, (and is close to the other mirror with a hole in the middle), the object appears as if it is in the air and on the mirror with a hole. Since the middle point of a mirror is the focus of another mirror, the object appears as if it is in the air - this is the result of the reflection between the two mirrors.
