  Abstract: Many images that represent the double-slit interference phenomenon are opaque and indecipherable to those who do not already understand the concept. This extremely simply, hand-made device gives the teacher and the student a way to work through the problem and come to an understanding of the topic that goes beyond the equations and then makes the equations more sensible.
