Depth Spinner is a shockwave applet that exemplifies how the eye detects and handles inward and outward motion. This program lets the user to move the spiral image backward or forwards. A slider bar allows for speed changes. Depth Spinner is a fun example of how an optical illusion can teach one about the mechanics of our magnificent eyes. www.exploratorium.edu does a fine job of teaching students about science related topics by using interactive teaching tools. The web page is well done with easy navigation, and understandable experiments. Novices should be able to browse the site, and precipitate in experiments, as long as certain features are installed on their browser, such as shockwave.
I tried Depth Spinner on Wednesday May 17. It is an easy program that gives the opportunity to anyone to experience and learn about them mechanics of our eyes. Perhaps for those who have just gotten into the field of science, this web site is completely helpful to understand the basic concepts of science and put them in practice. There is a lack of explanation about some more concepts relating to the main topic. However, it does a good gob as an interactive site.
It is a really easy program to use. I did not need any assistance or outside support to use the material successfully. However, it is too simple. I think it needs some more animation, more icons or navigational features.

This was a good web site for those who are just getting the concept of science. This site shows how the eye works and how it reacts to certain depth factors. This web site help show people who may have trouble grasping concepts of science how science relates to the real life. This is a good example of interactive learning which seems to help people understand concepts better.Although this site was educational and explanatory, was a bit bleak and lack in depth explanation. There should be more to the site like for instance; other visual keys to see how the eye itself works, explain exactly what is going on when you look at the spinner.
The site was easy to get to and navigate through, but some software is required in order to see some of the material. The software needed is Shockwave, the web site will open a window asking if you would like to download this. The only problem is that sometimes this doesn?t work for every computer therefore its not reliable.
