Experiment 08: The Spiderweb Illusion
Want to magically walk through a giant spiderweb without it touching you? This fun trick lets you create a video that shows you standing behind a web made of tape that stretches across a doorway. When you walk forward, you appear to melt right through the tape until you’re suddenly standing in front of the web!

Get all the details on how to do this yourself in our book, How to Build a Hovercraft.
