Howtoons DIY ~ Bending Light!

One of my favorite DIY projects ever is something my demo-guru friend Daniel Rosenberg -- the most-excellent impressario of In Demo Veritas -- and I used at our first IgNobel Moments of Science -- Bending Light! It turns out that future Nobel laureate Roy Glauber had cooked up this demo to show students the essential physics of fiber optics. Quite cool! Naturally, we made a Howtoon showing "How To" do-it-yourself... Plus a little video... For more glorious details, see the Harvard University demo-site...
