Seemingly Bent Category
User called Wendell sent in this photo few weeks ago. If you read carefully what he wrote, and open this picture in full size, you will see a neat optical illusion – at least it amazed me! Wendell: “I cropped this image for my web sight, and found it funny that the photo no longer [...]
This is what I just found in my mail box. One of our fans, Arturo Contreras was messing with photoshop, and accidentally created this optical illusion. As you see, the horizontal lines appear bent and distorted, while infact they are perfectly straight. This shows you how some of the “greatest” inventions in the history of [...]
Mike just sent us this optical illusion. The question is – Are the purple lines straight or bent? I know the answer, from my experience messing with this kind of illusions every day. But it’s up to you to solve this one.
Remember “Crooked Skyscraper”, “Russian Cafe”… These all have the same bent effect, more commonly known as “Cafe Wall Effect”. It gives you impression lines in the wall are all messed-up, while in fact they are perfectly straight & parallel. This image below shows you the original Cafe Wall that inspired the use of it’s name [...]
This simple, yet dellusional picture gives you opinnion lines in it aren’t parallel. If you pay attention or zoom this image, carefully following space between them, you’ll come to conclusion it’s always the same, thus lines are indeed parallel! Anyone objects to this statement?
The drawing appears very oblique but all the small squares are of the same size. See it yourself. Hard to believe? Check “Bulge”, “UTE/Life”, “Bent Lines 2″, “Wavy Illusion”, “Crooked Skyscraper”… and much more under Bent Object Illusions in my sidebar.
As time goes by, we find better and better illusions in a particular category. Previously you saw amazing “Bulge”, “Expanding Cushin”, “Bent Square”… but this time, in a same way I give you Wavy Illusion. I think this one has the strongest effect. It is somehow impossible to beleive these lines are perfectly parallel, yet [...]
Another interesting one! Before I explain it to you how it works, try to figure what’s the illusion below? Then open this post and see the solution. Pretty amazing… Ceiling is actually not bulged, it’s just the illusion you get when the light is turned on :)
