The periscope is a must-have piece of equipment for any spy. This VideoJug film will provide everything you need to know to build your own periscope with items easily found around the house. If you want to see what's going on around corners or over fences, without being seen, this video will show you how to do it.

Today, we're going to make spy gadgets, and we're going to make a periscope. A periscope is great for looking around corners, or looking from behind objects, so a spy would use it to be able to watch someone while they couldn't be seen, so they could hide behind something. You're going to need some mirrors to make this, two mirrors, and you're going to need a box.

A cardboard box is fine like this. Ideally, you want it to be a similar width to the mirrors, and a similar depth to the mirrors as well. It's quite simple to make, all you're going to do is you're going to need your mirrors to be at an angle of forty five degrees use a set square like this and you're going to draw lines at forty five degrees on your box and then you're going to cut out a shape that is like this on one side of the box, and then on the other side of the box.

You're going to cut out a shape in the opposite direction, so this is looking into one side of the box, and then looking out of the other side of the box. You're similarly going to cut a forty five degree angle there, so the idea is that you have a mirror there, and you look into there and it reflects the light from up here, and there is another mirror there to another forty five degree angle. The light that comes in there comes out there.

You can look in there and see what's happening above. It's quite simple then, and once you've done that you just need to get a mirror, hold it in place so it doesn't move. You have to make sure that you think about the light coming in there and then reflecting out the opposite direction so the mirror has to be like that so the light comes in and reflects out.

Now, I can look in, and I can look up and I can see my hand there. I can find an object and I can look over it. I'm going to look over this board here, and I can see what's going on.

Obviously, the longer you make it, the more, the better it is. And that's the way you make spy gadgets. .
