Beleive it or not, this stroller’s both front wheels are above the ground, it’s just that the shadow fits perfectly and voila! Result: another optical illusion – [via].

    Maybe there’s somethng heavy in the bag between the handles… just heavy enough to learn it, not heavy enough to make it fall over.

    Likewsies, this might be in motion. If I took this pic, I would push the stroller so it hits the curb, and take the picture as it is falling.

    Gee, Im just full of ideas. :)

      yeah, bad ones.

      ^ROFLMAO!! You just got scorched!!! lol nice one^

      I’d go with your second idea, only because that’s not a bag between the handles. It’s a movable cover….which really makes no sense to have on a completely open stroller as all it can do is block the sun, and it doesn’t do that very well lol.

      Check this. something weighing down the back to make it tip. the locks on the rear wheels make them immobile and wheel lock up against the curb prevents it from tipping even further. and it was caught at the perfect angle with the sun to make an impossible illusion.

  • kenny

    the point is NOT that the front wheels are in the air. the point is that the shadow of the front RIGHT wheel is next to the front LEFT wheel and looks like it’s coming from that wheel. pretty cool once you see what the illusion actually is :)

  • matt wilson

    I don’t think the fact that it’s leaning is the illusion here, gentlemen. It’s the fact that the right wheel is perfectly aligned with the left wheel’s shadow, making it appear Escher-esque in its impossibility.

  • shane

    I think the little red wheel lock on the back wheel is supporting it on the curb.

  • Farted

    I agree word for word what Shane said!

  • kiara

    i agree with everyoneon here

  • Jhonka

    I agree to disagree!

  • th

    I agree with matt wilson. The illusion is not supposed to be how the stroller is leaning. The illusion is why the shadows are alligned strangely

  • d

    thay just stod the ting up and took a picture

  • sassy

    not very cool to me!

    yoyoyo ad my name is jack clusoe

  • Matt

    People seem to be missing the point of this photo, even though a number of comments have already explained it. If you think this photo is boring, look at the shadow, in relation to the buggy! It’s impossible..

  • dipen patel

    i get why it works quite simple really

  • Lawrence T. Higgins

    if u cant tell, the front two wheels have been photoshopped. they are out of focus and the far front one looks larger than all the others

    This is just balanced. This is a stupid illusion, if you can call it that.

    Did that first guy actually say, “gee”?

  • PrincezzWannab

    why do you all have to hate?!
    Quit bein h8rs and just enjoy the sight
    p.s. If u dont have any thing nice to say: Shut ur Gosh Darn mouth!

    There is no need for photoshopping. Both front wheels are off the ground and the shadow is falling where I would expect it to. I understand where people say the illusion is but my mind can’t see it.

  • Cecilia

    in my opinion its just on the ground. the wheel beside it is obvously on the ground and all the other ones too.

  • nobody

    duuuude looking at all these illusions makes me feel like im high or something… 0_o

  • Nisheeth

    Another possibility is that there is a person not in the photo but with the help of a thread pulling the stroller backwards.The grass in the background also makes it easier to hide the thread

  • sizwe

    theres somthing heavy on the handles

  • http://google.com cindy

    I think the little red wheel lock on the back wheel is supporting it on the curb. :) thats what i think

  • BlackLight

    first thing i saw was that both wheels were above the ground.

  • Noah

    umm if u didnt notice, The wheels are on the ground, its and illusion, its not floating the wheels are on the ground

  • jamie kinsella

    the stroller is not even above the ground. its not floating or anything like that. the picture has been taken in such a way that it looks like as if the front wheels are not touching the ground. but it actually is.

    not amaze, I will be otherwise if it’s a video, sorry

  • Popeye

    Now, this is a really good one!
