Floating Skateboard Illusion

Lights configured under the skateboard to create a bright outline giving the impression of a shadow.
  [vote for,

The "shadow" shaped like the skateboard makes it look like it's floating a foot or so above the ground.

The link clarifies the idea.

       Wonder if you could to the same thing with lights on a hat to make it look like you're floating as you walk.

       Wait, are you talking to yourself?
blissmiss, Jan 29 2022


       Yea, guess so.
doctorremulac3, Jan 29 2022

       I don't think the hat version would work, but the skateboard version might.

       Yea, the hat might be kind of complex. Sort of pointless too. The skateboard thing might just be a need effect.

       Don't know if any of you are aware but this is exactly how one type of levitation illusion is performed.   

       You cut away the soles of your shoes, practice ballerina toe tricks for a few years, and wear black socks so that your feet can't be seen in their own shadow.   



       Good idea, but I'm going to have to put that pretty low on my bucket list.

       ok. talking to oneself is a sign of intelligence. So you're good. I get it now having looked at the link. Nice. Yes. Bun for you for both talking to yourself, and standing in your ballet shoes making shadows all day with fries. This is good male bonding stuff.

       Um... yeah, we uh, hmm.   


       These point shoes are hard on my tendons. Maybe I did the ribbons wrong.
