Unlock the wonders of optics with our Portable Newton's Color Disc – a miniaturized marvel inspired by the groundbreaking invention of Sir Isaac Newton.

This battery-powered iteration, measuring a compact 4 x 3.25 inches with 2.5 inches in diameter disc, brings the principles of Newton's Color Wheel to the palm of your hand. Powered by two AA batteries, this portable version boasts eight distinct colors meticulously arranged on the disc. When set in motion, the colors seamlessly blend, creating an optical illusion where the human eye perceives a uniform white disc, showcasing the genius of Newton's innovative exploration into the nature of light.

Sir Isaac Newton, the luminary scientist of the 17th century, invented Newton's Color Disc to demonstrate the phenomenon of color mixing and the persistence of vision. As the disc spins, the rapid succession of colored segments tricks the eye into perceiving a continuous white light, revealing the intricacies of color perception and the additive nature of light. Our Portable Newton's Color Disc is a nod to this scientific legacy, making it an ideal educational tool for enthusiasts, students, and anyone intrigued by the captivating interplay of colors and light.
