Remember the famous light refraction experiment in 1666 by Sir Isaac Newton? Ok, I don’t either… but it’s widely considered as a landmark discovery in the study of optics and color theory, which I’m sure we are all pretty thankful for! The Prisma 1666 experiment is an interactive light installation made of 15 triangular crystal blocks on a flat surface, refracting light in all sorts of beautiful ways.

The installation allows you to interact with the projected colors, angles, and shapes through an iPad app, creating an opportunity to experiment with light refraction like Sir Isaac Newton did, just minus the fancy projectors and touch screens! Created by Wonwei and Super Nature Design.
