Links for applets on Refraction


I am currently looking for links on interesting sites dealing with refraction. You may also find some interesting material on You Tube, Yahoo Video or Google Video. If you find anything which you think others my find interesting.. post it up folks.

theres a very nice video on You Tube about about the "Archer Fish" which has to overcome refraction to catch its prey.
Heres the link

Total Internal Reflection ->

You can move a torch about under the water to change the angle of incidence and to get total internal reflection
