o2-03

Description

The slide of Einstein (or any of your favorite slides) is focused a few feet from the projector, but unfocussed where it strikes any surface on which it might be identifiable. When a white stick pointer is moved rapidly up and down through the focal plane the image of Einstein can easily be identified. It's persistence of vision, folks.
