My pal Rick sent me this simple photo of impossible triangles formation. This impossible construction sure looks Escher inspired, do you agree? I actually needed few minutes to figure it out. You presume it’s two triangles trapped in an impossible way, but actually it’s only one continuous line if you follow it closely. What was more important for me to announce in this post, is that Google finally accepted our “Magic Trick of The Day” gadget, and added it to its collection of most popular gadgets. You can get it from here, and simply add it to your Google Homepage. Well, this should make our Mighty Magic Tricks website little more famous. Watch out in following days for new exciting things to happen!

    You could make that shape easily, the top right end would have to stick out the back, but you could make it look 2D and it’d work.

    I Think =S lol
    anyway cool illusion.

    sorry, but i think its kinda obvious…
    its not flat like it looks…its bent so it only appears impossible

    its just one long piece not 3 triangles

    Well, it certainly is an illusion, but I don’t think it’s “impossible.”

    I just tried bending a straw in that shape, and it worked. Maybe I didn’t follow the shape right?

    Doesn’t seem to be tricky to me, maybe I just followed the path before looking at the whole.

  21. allie says:

    that was really easy to tell that it was only one line.

    That doesn’t look impossible.

  23. Flappy says:

    why was this on the website, it’s not an illusion at all, it’s just a random bamboo loop thing (first comment WOOT)

    that’s just gluing sticks togather. didn’t impress.

    That is not impossible. Can be done with a twist in the bamboo.

    • happydoodle says:

      they say impossible bcuz when most ppl c it for the first time, they think its 2 triangles connected in an impossible way. but then they realize its just a continuous line, and tht it IS possible. “impossible” is just a first interpretation.

  26. Chris says:

    This doesn’t look too impossible to make, just difficult. Bamboo is a malleable substance.

    Does look cool though…

    “I actually needed few minutes to figure it out.”

    Minutes? It took you whole minutes to figure this out? [* smirks *]

  30. Prashant says:

    Well.. it decieves us at first sight, but you only have to give 1 careful look, and the rest is cakewalk

    why do you people care if you are the first to coment? and why do you say you are the first 15 minutes after someone else posts the REAL first comment? idiots

  34. Aethelind says:

    I can see how its an illusion, but I mean seriously… Great site anyway!

  35. Anonymous says:

    I knew it was a continious line when i first saw it without looking at the comments. still it’s pretty impressive.

  36. Anonymous says:

    That TOTALLY WORKS. Its so really easy. I want to make one.

  37. Anonymous says:

    that is so to possible it just wouldnt be called triangles more like just these bent lines i guess

  38. Anonymous says:

    yeah.. not able to figure why was this posted under optical illusion..!!!

  39. sizwe says:

    these arent triangles ther conected :/

  40. Rob says:

    If you have time. there a video on the internet explains how you can turn a sphere inside out without bending or crease.

    it ranks up there with the Klien Bottle.
