  3. cut it in half and look at either side says:

    you should see a block at the left side and to stairs on the right

  4. zac says:

    on the side it looks like no steps then in the front it looks like two steps! i get it!

  5. feuds says:

    this i stupid the angles on the left are different from the angles on the right for no reason, this illusion was slapped together without careful attention to details…mc esher it is not!

  6. me. says:

    its just to mess with your mind

  7. Excite the exciting excite says:

    Round of applause to feuds for finding out how it was done.

  8. dumb dumbs says:

    it would look way better if there was more. and congrats to all you brainiacs who found it out.

  9. 3Destruction says:

    One more thing. The shading on the steps at right=colour of planks at left!

  10. Choco-Holic says:

    3 or 4 colors? 3 colors.

  11. stoopid says:

    someone could build that

    a really good carpenter, like jesus or batman

  12. Anonymous says:

    Other than the fact that it is not real and therefore can be anything, this could theoretically be possible with a winding stare case sort of step pattern. The second stair could be wider and longer than the first making it appear to be the same length as the first. The angle we perceive it from is the key

  13. Scrap Warrior says:

    What brings out the steps is the line at the right, very good, very good.

    I know what it is it looks like an old lady washin her car in front of burger king u just gotta look close…. if u dont see that then go home

  16. Stephanie says:

    A fascinating illusion. For you see, the technical defined fold of the two-dimensional paper used to construct this design can defy the odds of the metric system if severed in a particular form.

  17. The REAL Stephanie says:

    That last one was my SISTER not me. She is a nerd. I’m sorry for the confusion.

  18. R.A.L jacks says:

    its extremely easy 2 figure it out cause on 1 side there is a blackish lookin line which creates the illusion of the stairs but on the other side there is no line so that makes look flat.

  19. noah says:

    if you look at the side of it first and follow the lighter strip you will see that it is only one big block.

  20. alimaj says:

    cover the stripe on the right with your finger and then look at it

  21. bonus code says:

    Hi,i hope you will enjoy all this bonus code to play online ;)

  22. cosimos says:

    i dont get it

  23. Tony says:

    I think it would be possible to start with a solid block, & carve away the steps. Maybe the larger the original the more likely you could have them emerge in reality.

  24. Angela says:

    It starts off straight, then starts bending at the end…

  25. Hi says:

    Spiral staircase. Duh

  26. Austin says:

    It is all just One big block with painting on the right to make it look like steps

  27. rahul rai says:

    why is it saying that your comment needs moderation

  28. qwerty says:

    Its hard to imagine but the side on the left could be going backwards. When you picture it you will understand

  29. nelgy says:

    i dont see as it impossible, but a flight of weird stairs!

    from the bottom to the second layer in the front section. starts on the left at a 90deg step and slowly warps/twists to meet the other side on a different angle,
    it still has two vertical and two horizontal steps.

    it would be a good theme park maze
