Transcript: How can I become invisible?
In animation, two aliens fly across space in a spaceship.
Blynk is a rectangular green alien with spiky hair and long fangs.
Aazoo is a round orange alien with 3 eyes.
With the help of M.A.V.I.S., the spaceship computer, and real Earth scientists, they listen to real Earth children's questions and try to find answers.
A song plays that says BLYNK AND AAZOO
I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU
The name of the show reads "Blynk and Aazoo. Imagine, investigate, invent!"
(LIVELY ELECTRONIC MUSIC)
In the spaceship, Aazoo plays with a ball-in-a-maze puzzle. His 3 eyes start rolling around as he tries to follow the balls.
M.A.V.I.S. says WARNING, AAZOO EYEBALL
Blynk shakes him.
M.A.V.I.S. says INQUIRY BOOTH TRANSMITTING,
A real life boy named Ukwense pops up on a screen and says BLYNK AND AAZOO, I HAVE
A QUESTION FOR YOU!
Uwkense is around 12, with braided brown hair and wears a raspberry polo T-shirt.
Ukwense says I WAS PLAYING HIDE AND
SEEK WITH MY FRIENDS
AND I WAS WONDERING IS THERE
A WAY TO MAKE ME INVISIBLE?
M.A.V.I.S. says THE INVENTION POTENTIAL
OF THIS QUESTION
SEEMS EASY TO SEE, GET IT?
Blynk says M.A.V.I.S.
M.A.V.I.S. says YES, CAPTAIN?
He presses the question button.
M.A.V.I.S. says CALLING INTERSTELLAR
A real life scientist called Aaron pops up on another screen and says HI, BLYNK AND AAZOO!
Aaron is in his thirties, with shirt brown hair and wears glasses and a striped shirt.
Aaron says SO, WHO CAN I HELP TODAY?
Ukwense says HI, I'M UKWENSE.
AND I WAS WONDERING, HOW
CAN I BECOME INVISIBLE?
Aaron says HI, UKWENSE, I'M AARON.
SO IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND
HOW TO BECOME INVISIBLE,
FIRST YOU NEED TO KNOW
HOW YOU SEE.
BLYNK, BRING UP THE
HUMAN FILES PLEASE.
Ukwense says IT'S A DOG!
M.A.V.I.S. says UNCONFIRMED, THE
CREATURE LOOKS LIKE
SOME SORT OF HAIRY ALIEN.
Aaron laughs and says THAT'S DEFINITELY A DOG,
AND IF YOU WERE OUT IN A
PARK AND YOU SAW THAT DOG,
IT WOULD BE BECAUSE LIGHT
IS REFLECTING OFF OF IT
AND REFLECTING BACK TO YOUR EYE.
Ukwense says COOL!
Aaron says EVEN COOLER IS THAT OUR EYES
TAKE THAT REFLECTED LIGHT
AND TURNS IT INTO
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE, THOSE MESSAGES ARE
TO THE BRAIN TO FIGURE OUT
WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT
AND VOILA A HAIRY ALIEN.
Ukwense says IT'S A DOG!
OKAY SO I GUESS YOU NEED
LIGHT IN ORDER TO SEE STUFF?
Aaron says PRETTY MUCH.
Ukwense says SO IF I'M IN A REALLY DARK
ROOM AND NO ONE CAN SEE ME,
AM I INVISIBLE?
Ukwense says YEAH?
Ukwense says OH, NO. I'M CONFUSED.
M.A.V.I.S. says YOU ARE ALMOST CORRECT,
HUMANS WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SEE
YOU, BUT SOME ANIMALS COULD.
Ukwense says OH, YEAH, LIKE MY CAT WEDNESDAY,
SHE SEES GREAT IN THE DARK.
A clip shows a cat playing the piano.
Aazoo laughs as Blynk nags at him.
M.A.V.I.S. says I ENJOY CAT VIDEOS TOO,
I'M NOT EVEN KITTEN YOU!
KITTEN, GET IT?
Aaron says CATS, LIKE MANY
HAVE REALLY GOOD NIGHT VISION,
SO IN THE DARK YOU WOULDN'T
BE INVISIBLE TO THEM.
Ukwense says RIGHT, BUT THERE'S GOTTA BE
A WAY I CAN BE LESS VISIBLE.
WHAT ABOUT THOSE ANIMALS THAT
LOOK LIKE LEAVES AND THINGS?
Aaron says THAT'S A GREAT IDEA!
CAMOUFLAGE, THE ART OF DISGUISE.
BLYNK, LETS LOOK AT THE
ANIMAL ARCHIVES, PLEASE.
M.A.V.I.S. says THE SCORPIONFISH, TAWNY
AND MIMIC OCTOPUS,
ARE EXTREMELY GOOD AT
HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT.
Aaron says THESE MASTERS OF DISGUISE
NATURALLY BLEND INTO
Ukwense says WOAH, I COULD BARELY SEE
M.A.V.I.S. says THAT IS THE IDEA.
CAMOUFLAGE HELPS ANIMALS
HIDE FROM PREDATORS,
OR BE INVISIBLE AS THEY
HUNT FOR THEIR NEXT MEAL.
Ukwense says OH, WHAT ABOUT THOSE BUGS
THAT LOOK LIKE STICKS?
Aaron says RIGHT!
CAN'T FORGET STICK INSECTS.
A GREAT EXAMPLE OF MIMICRY.
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE,
MIMICRY, THE ART OF COPYING
THE COLOR AND TEXTURE
OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT
SO THEY CANNOT BE SEEN.
Ukwense says WHAT'S THAT?
Aaron says THAT'S THE GHOST SHRIMP.
POOR LITTLE GUY DOESN'T
HAVE MUCH TO BLEND IN WITH,
SO IT JUST MAKES
ITSELF SEE THROUGH.
Ukwense says SEE THROUGH?
THAT'S SO COOL!
M.A.V.I.S. says SOMETIMES I WISH
I WAS INVISIBLE,
THEN I STOP AND REALIZE,
I AM JUST A VOICE.
I AM INVISIBLE.
Ukwense says HEY, WHAT ABOUT AN
JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES.
INVENT ONE OF THOSE?
Aaron says THOSE ARE PRETTY AMAZING!
BLYNK, QUEUE THE...
BLYNK ARE YOU OKAY?
Aaron camouflages as an electronic device.
Aaron says AHH, LOOKS LIKE AAZOO IS
GETTING THE HANG OF CAMOUFLAGE.
SO, WHERE WERE WE?
Ukwense says INVISIBILITY CLOAK!
Blynk presses a button and a blanket drops on Aazoo.
Aaron says THAT IS JUST A BLANKET
BLYNK, I'M SENDING YOU A FILE.
CAN YOU PUT IT ON THE SCREEN?
Aaron says WHAT YOU'RE SEEING, IS
SCIENTISTS AROUND THE WORLD
ARE TRYING TO MAKE THE FIRST,
TRUE INVISIBILITY CLOAK.
A clip shows men wearing invisibility cloaks.
Ukwense says WOAH, HAVE THEY DONE
Aaron says IT'S A LITTLE COMPLICATED,
REMEMBER THAT FUNNY LOOKING DOG?
M.A.V.I.S. says HAIRY ALIEN.
Aaron says WELL THEY'RE EXPERIMENTING
WITH A TYPE OF SPECIAL MATERIAL
THAT DOESN'T REFLECT LIGHT.
IF WE WRAP THIS MATERIAL
AROUND THAT DOG,
LIGHT WOULD BEND AROUND IT.
Ukwense says AND IF THE LIGHT DIDN'T BOUNCE
BACK TO OUR EYES,
WE WOULDN'T SEE THE DOG, RIGHT?
IT WOULD BE INVISIBLE.
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE, YOU WOULD
NOT EVEN SEE THE MATERIAL.
YOU WOULD ONLY SEE
WHAT'S BEHIND IT.
Ukwense says WOAH, I'D LOVE SOME OF THAT.
Aaron says WELL, HERE'S THE CATCH.
IT EXISTS, BUT IT
CAN ONLY BEND LIGHT
AROUND VERY TINY, TINY OBJECTS.
Ukwense says RIGHT.
Aaron says BUT MAYBE SOMEDAY,
THEY'LL HAVE MATERIALS
THAT COULD MAKE BIGGER
Ukwense says COOL!
IF I CAN MAKE THINGS INVISIBLE,
I'D MAKE INVISIBLE BIKES,
INVISIBLE WATER BALLOONS,
EVEN INVISIBLE ROLLER BLADES.
M.A.V.I.S. says INSPIRATION DETECTED, INVENTION
STATION IS READY, CAPTAIN.
Blynk makes a skateboard in the invention station. He puts a drop of a substance on it and it becomes invisible.
(SKATEBOARD WHEELS TURNING)
Ukwense says AN INVISIBLE SKATEBOARD?
THAT'S SO COOL!
Aaron says AWESOME!
Blynk rides the skateboard and says WOOHOO!
Aaron says EPIC!
(SKATEBOARD ROLLING AWAY)
Ukwense says OH NO, BLYNK, YOUR
SKATEBOARD IS INVISIBLE,
HOW ARE YOU GOING TO FIND IT?
M.A.V.I.S. says ALERT, INVENTION FAILURE...
WAIT THAT IS INCORRECT.
BLYNK HAS SUCCEEDED?
Aaron says GREAT START BLYNK,
BUT YOU MIGHT NEED TO
TWEAK YOUR INVENTION
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
Ukwense says WHEN I GROW UP,
I'LL BE THE ONE TO INVENT
AN INVISIBILITY CLOAK
THAT KIDS COULD WEAR.
Aaron says CAN'T WAIT!
Ukwense says GOTTA GO,
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
Aaron says BYE, UKWENSE.
WELL, I HOPE YOU FIND
YOUR SKATEBOARD BLYNK!
Aazoo steps on the invisible skateboard and rolls away.
Blynk says AAZOO...
M.A.V.I.S. says THE SEARCH FOR
ALL SYSTEMS ENGAGE.
The song says BLYNK AND AAZOO
I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU.
