MAGIC LANTERNS
宛如現代 Netflix 的魔法燈籠

Magic lanterns were devices that let people watch images on a wall. A lantern would shine light on photo slides to make the pictures appear bigger. Then, everyone in the room could look at the large images. Although the first magic lantern was invented in the 1500s, few people bought them because they were too costly. During the 1800s, brilliant businesspeople came up with an idea. They began renting lanterns to customers for a few days. Families could then afford to use them.
魔法燈籠是一種能讓人們在牆上觀賞影像的裝置。燈籠的光會照射在照相幻燈片上來讓圖片顯得更大。然後,房間裡的每個人就可以看到放大的影像。雖然第一個魔法燈籠發明於十六世紀,但是因為它們太昂貴所以沒什麼人買。在十九世紀,厲害的商人想出一個點子。他們開始把燈籠出租給客人幾天。這樣一般家庭就可以用得起它們。
