Physics principles • Magnetic levitation • Diffuse reflection • Infrared sensor

Magnetic levitation • Essentially it is the use of magnetic fields or magnetic forces to levitate a (usually) metallic object. • By manipulating magnetic fields and controlling their forces an object can be levitated. • Examples: Maglev transportation, flywheels, railguns and magnetic sheet floaters

Magnetic levitation

Heating lights • Lights (heat) capable of producing a thermal effect. • It transmits heat without contact and only for as long as necessary. In this way, food/beverages can be brought to the necessary temperature without being overheated.

Diffuse reflection • The Law of Reflection states that the angle of incidence (the light hitting the surface) is equal to the angle of reflection (light leaving the surface). • On rough surfaces, the incident ray is reflected at many angles rather than at just one angle.

Infrared sensor • Detects temperature through infrared lights • Infrared lights are emissions of energy based on the temperature of the object. • Slightest temperature changes results in different wavelengths of infrared light, which is immediately recognised by the infrared sensor.
