    Are there any other views of these pictures??? so we can see that they are indeed real?

  2. vurdlak says:

    Sorry no more pictures… acctually if you look closer, you can notice some ends aren’t touching, eventhough it appears they are. For example last pictures dark green side has a single 2D square bumping out…. it can’t be part of a blue hole.

  3. rob says:

    I see what you meen vurdlak.

  4. ihope says:

    You mean that the block actually has a blue hole, but there’s a green tab added to make us think otherwise?

  5. Farted says:

    That’s pretty clever!!

  6. Vanillus says:

    Wow, realy amazing

  7. IT says:

    they are drawings what do you think LOL

  8. Mageboy says:

    They aren’t drawings, unless someone took time to photoshop shadows in them too, would be a waste of time for nothing

  9. KountryKat says:

    It’s strange how our brain makes-believe

  10. £llza says:

    why is there a watch nxt 2 all of them?
    thats pretty stooooooooooooopid

  11. kap says:

    amazing…..

  12. Hai says:

    doy! i know the trick in this. the object is cut and set up in a certain way and the camera only takes the picture in a specific angle or else that would give away the trick.

  13. Hai says:

    to see what i mean, check out Impossible Objects No.2

  14. LIBBY says:

    Even if some of you figured it out, it’s still amazingly clever the way it was set up! I couldn’t do it, and I’m sure it took a lot or work. Hats off to you Vurdlak! It’s INCREDIBLE work!!!

  15. that guy says:

    its easy,hard to explain tho, theirs a cut out part you cant see 4 the first 3 and the 4th is indented on the left side,paper thin

  16. setu says:

    It is easy to explain.in most of the pictures the structures are not joined but they are arranged and photograph at such an angle that they seem jointed.
    last picture would not even be called an illusion as just a
    2-D green square flap has been added to arrangement.

  17. CASEY says:

    how to build these!?!?

  18. jeromax says:

    Click on the top left picture (title is “Illusion”) of this page to see an illusion and the explanation
    http://www.zepixel.com/en/autres-vrac-4.html
    The trick is less “well done” (? sorry for the english i’m french) than on this site but i spent lot of time to build it :-)

  19. somebody says:

    Kay this is kind of off-topic but whats the deal with the watch on the side?

  20. Excite the exciting excite says:

    Did they think it was easy to keep the secret? They could have used Photoshop and SKETCHED the things!

  21. ダニエル says:

    i Think they didnt

  22. Nachos Yummy says:

    Whats with the watches?

  23. J says:

    The watches are to show scale. I THINK ??

  24. i laf at u cus u cant spel says:

    no there to show they have nice watches

  25. 3Destruction says:

    The triangle is actually an equilateral triangle waih 1 leg perpendicular to the ground. This becomes obvious if you put it in front of a mirror.

  26. Hey says:

    Go to impossible-objects-in-real-life 2 and look at the 2nd one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. meeow =^_^= says:

    these are exellent i absolutly love this site

  28. cool cat says:

    That’s cool.
    Still, why the wath next to every one?!?!

  29. Pirate Pete says:

    FOr all you photoshop illusions are fakers, just becuz u dont knwo how he did it doesnt mean he just made it fake.

    my brain hurts………..

  31. A.J. says:

    I could do this myself in one hour per picture.
    They are simply “Escherish” 2D images added as a layer to the background of the paper & watch.
    All lighting effects can then be simply added in the Blending Options palette.

    THE WATCHES ARE THERE TO SHOW THE SCALE AKA HOW BIG THE OBJECTS ARE…

  33. Anonymous says:

    Sorry jeromax, but you can make the triangle thing in the center if your “illusion”. Nice, but the unity triangle isn’t connected, but one side is behind the others

  34. Anonymous says:

    jeromax, your “illusion” is fake, i can make that, just arrange sticks in that order. Unity triangle is easy, one sie is behind the others.

    I have a book that illustrates these figures and shows you how they work. It sais “its impossible to build these things no matter how feasible they seem to appear in real life”. Although the watch is there to show scale, it serves a more “shady” even sinister purpose. Just as they did with cut out shapes, they did with the watch.

    an illusion only brought to account by the placement of the “optical” device. In this case the audience, and although it’s easier to change the time on the watch, it’s harder to do the math.

    bring out a pen and paper!!! maybe a calculator.

    it IS REAL
    tho I realize that it is difficult for people to believe in it

    I have made the green and blue block myself (the last pic)
    please find it here:
    http://koredump.multiply.com/photos/photo/2/1

    Please believe in meeeee, it is REAL,
    interesting enough, I show this pic to my friends, they keep saying it is Photoshop =___=;
    come on, that is my desk and my keyboard. I am now typing this comment with it…

    (do let me know if you have any suggestions to take the pics so that people would believe that the object exists in real life)

    Hi Vurdlak, thanks for the site. I’m one of the fans too. Keep going and I appreciate your site having well orgnization and catagorization of the illusions much too.

    Lastly, here’s my little contribution to your site (if nobody else have sent this to you before) if you wanna make the objects yourself, you can actually find the SOURCE here:
    http://www.geocities.jp/ikemath/3Drireki.htm
    click on the photos of the objects to load a Java 3D model and you can rotate them and you will immediately understand the trick behind. there’s pdf file you can print and make the model yourself.

  37. chronicbliss says:

    they are all just optical tricks.

  38. Becci says:

    Aaahhh, they make me feel kind of ill xD And in the last one, it’s like impossible to look at both ends at the same time, for me at least.

  39. BaLLeR says:

    The last 1 iz fake cuz there iz a tab on the side to make u think that its impossible.

  40. Anonymous says:

    I can do the fourth one. Look closer. The blue looks like a bench, and I solved the other stuff. The third one is possible. I saw it at the museum near San Diego, where I live. I can’t remember the museum name, but there’s a special park near by.

    what’s the watch for anyway?

  42. guitarking says:

    £llza is right, the watch is kinda stupid.

    ahh-mazzing. i like the last one

    I am gunnacome in the night and kill who ever made this -.-

  45. i*is*awesome says:

    the watch is there to show angle u idiots jeez

  46. Anonymous says:

    these are all about the camera angle. look at the shadows, notice they dont touch. its an optical illusion. the mind doesnt know what its seeing, so it fills in the pieces. its like when you look at the inside of a plastic halloween mask, the eyes seem to follow you but they really dont move. its all camera angles.

  47. Anonymous says:

    the last one is possible because the to blue thing is actually flat

  48. FAR OUT!!! says:

    “they are all just optical tricks”-chronicbliss

    NO! YA THINK???

    Honestly, all those people who just write comments to say “oh boo hoo, that’s not real, its just an illusion” should wake up and look around. Then MAYBE they’d see that THIS IS AN OPTICAL ILLUSIONS WEBSITE!!!!

    And no, the models are NOT photoshopped, and they are NOT flat paper pictures.

    They are all real objects, but the pictures have to be taken from exactly the right angle to make them seem possible.

    There are some revealing photos of that triangle on this site somewhere, but sorry I dont remember where… anyway if you find it youll see the trick.

    seriously, cant you find something better to do than try to prove everything is photoshopped?

    Thank you, Far Out… Baffled and argumentative after looking at an optical illusion… And these are tomorrow’s leaders? I’m fearful.

    Anyone Else Looking At The Shadows?
    It May Help Because Some Of Them Are At Different Angles

    that is so cool and how it looks like it is touching the end when it is not

    The 3rd isn’t EVEN A TRIANGLE!

  53. Mazz says:

    Vurdlak, this is amazing :D Whoever did it is awesome, but what is with the watch? I don’t get what is with the watch.

  54. Franx says:

    Mazz, the watch is there so people can see the object’s size compared to a real wrist watch.
    Cheers!

  55. introzip says:

    Simple. The watch function is only comparison of the shadow shape.

  56. denise says:

    wow!amazing!

  57. xyz says:

    great work of mspaint :)

    hahhaha

    For the last image zoom to the level of x6 and u will see the reallity

  58. Davidmoreen says:

    It is all in the angle.

  59. Someone says:

    Great angles! Seems almost like they are real!
    Did u make the models urself?

  60. Akka says:

    I like the blurred photoshopped edges on the third one.

  61. juan says:

  62. Me says:

    Really cool stuff like that are awesome

  63. zrowny says:
