This optical illusion carpet, spotted in a Paris video game store provides an illusion of vortex floor. The effect is achieved by printing bent lines in according manner, just like what we have already seen in Apple exec’s garden. Not only does this carpet messes with your mind, it might also help you actually to trip while trying to walk across it! Can you see the floor on below photo as flat, which it actually is? Didn’t think you could!

    I’d want to be sober to try walking on that.

    I wonder what it looks like from the other end of the shop? Looks like this might work – maybe not perfectly – from many different perspectives.

  • Beholder

    Cool! I want that carpet for my rehearsal room!

    This would be excellent carpet for a surf shop. Imagine if it was done in blue and white tones to simulate the illusion of walking on the ocean or waves.

  • Slammer

    I want that.

  • Care Bear

    A good reason to stay out of game stores.
