At school, we all dreamed that our chemistry lessons would be extraordinary and explosive. Eventually, it wasn’t that fun. However, now GE has provided us with an opportunity to investigate science with pleasure. Labracadabra, with a little help from Amazon Echo’s Alexa, is certainly going to colour our pastime.

 

Labracadabra: How Does It Work?

As a matter of fact, Labracadabra is a science experiment platform that offers quite “juicy” scientific videos and special kits you can buy online. The main home for the platform is located on Facebook. Thus, you can visit the page and already see six mind-dazzling videos showing some fast but picturesque experiments. Moreover, it is important to outline that the format is a little bit familiar to that of extraordinarily popular Buzzfeed recipe videos. Ever wondered how to create a volcano out of toothpaste? If so, Labracadabra’s for you! Furthermore, their page is also full of some extraordinary facts. Just stroll through the page and you’ll find out how to create an unpoppable bubble or a sound you can see.

Nevertheless, there’s even more to excite us. Labracadabra makes use of Amazon Echo’s talking device Alexa, that reacts to the owner’s voice. For instance, you would like to do an experiment, but you need an appropriate explanation. Hence, you call Alexa with your voice and ask something like “Alexa, how do I create a “Foaming Mountain”?”. Consequently, Alexa is going to talk you through the steps and help you with the set up. Therefore, your kitchen can become a real laboratory for some time.

The project is still quite new, but it looks like it’s got a lot to offer in the foreseeable future. To purchase the kits and try your best at it you can visit their official website.

 

What’s The Purpose?

At first, it may seem that it is just about the fun idea. Blowing bubbles, making up volcanos, looking at the flow of lava in the Lava lamp – all that sounds like some evening entertainment show. However, the main idea is not about that. In fact, Labracadabra attracts people to the topic of science so that they could be able to tackle the technological and scientific issues in the real life. On the permanent basis, GE’s engineers are working on the project and conceiving those crazy scientific experiments. Isn’t that inspiring?
