step-by-step explanation + pictures
Infinite field depth as a result ; mysterious and out-of-time, awesome pictures !
Every ones has got to make something like that. I've not gone to this length but its always fun. If you have got kids its great, if you haven't borrow some from someone else (Legally!) But be prepared to hold your audiences attention. Five year old's that have an attention span measured in nano seconds need some work. But when you get them all made its fun, everyone goes off and does their thing. When you get everything back you kinda learn who can and who can't count up to five slowly. You'll get some wonderful, strange and down right weird pictures that you're just not going to get any other way. (Ok, that's an assumption)
