A Lubor’s lens is a popular polarizer used among magicians

Lubor’s lens is a popular polarizer used by magician and optical magician, especially for the “stealth” trick.

Polarizers work by absorbing certain light waves, coming from different angles (or polarizers), to allow the light waves below them to reach the front of the lens.

This item is named after chemical engineer and amateur magician Lubor Fiedler, who passed away in 2014, as he used to experiment with polarizers for his magic tricks.

In the Instagram reels, the film-like object appears to make the screwdriver and the letters on the keyboard invisible, while also showing the background image behind them.

At one point in the video, the creator can be seen holding Lubor’s Lens above crayons arranged on top of each other as if forming a grid.

The creator kept Lubor’s lens above the crayons, and at first, users could only see the orange, pink, and yellow pencils at the top.

However, after the optical magician rotated Lubor’s Lens to the left, the user could only see the blue and green pen underneath.

Basically, when the author of the axis of rotation changes the direction of the Lubor lens, the item will absorb the light waves reflected by the three crayons above, allowing the light waves of the crayons at the bottom to propagate towards before.

Mind-bending Secrets has amassed nearly 1.4 million likes on Instagram since going live.

The content has also received more than 6,000 comments, with many users expressing distrust and others shedding light on the trick.

In other news, Apple Music is using Spotify with a half price plan with a twist.

Snapchat has revealed that it has Give a whopping $250m (£189m) to its creators in the last year.

And people are being encouraged to look fake Omicron email inbox in the coming days.
