    That last one just broke my brain.

  3. Hai says:

    Kemuel, did u check out Impossibly Constructed Objects No.2?

  4. Bobby says:

    Hai, did you check No.3

    Hope You did

  5. biclops says:

    woulda been hard to curve the wood into those shapes like the unity thingy

  6. YER MOM says:

    I’m sorry, but all of these pictures just simply have to be messed with in some sort of computer program. It’s just not possible.

  7. Seba 719 says:

    it is possible yer mom. my friend had a book that told u how to make stuff like that but I don’t remember already

  8. Excite the exciting excite says:

    That first one is easy to work out. they have the first half and glue that to the plank, they take the second half, glue that the OPPOSITE way (vertical/horizontal) to the plank. Simple!

    • This Guy says:

      That might be the case, but the piece on the top wouldn’t fit with what you’re saying, look at the lines of the wood, they don’t go together so seemlessly like you say.

  9. matt says:

    look at the reflections for pictures 2 and 3…

  10. Kyle says:

    I can see how the first and last ones are done =D

  11. Roman says:

    This structures catch the imagination!

  12. Red. says:

    that last one is ridiculously easy to explain. the long bits of wood don’t line up, but the picture’s taken from an angle that looks like they do.

  13. some guy says:

    #3 you can see that the blue block has no shadow

  14. Tinku says:

    I think these minds are awesome!!

  15. jodie says:

    this isnt impossible at all. the last one i made one of my own. the two joints at the top arnt actuly joined together, from the angle of the photo it doesnt look like it, ifact the yellow rectangle it just lay on the floor and a hole in the blue/purple one and the picture is took to make it look like they are stuck together.

  22. Anonymous says:

    i tried making the triangle out of clay but if you unconnect one of them then look at an angle it works. :P

  23. Anonymous says:

    that is easy to do but i should not be saying that because in school i was in gifted math for almost four years

  24. Anonymous says:

    I just don’t get the impossible triangle.
    It scares me.

    they hurt my eyes

  26. brionny says:

    The last ones real as you see the shadows

  27. Anonymous says:

    I know the answer to the first one, but not the rest.

  28. Anonymous says:

    I understand the last one now.

    testing 1234

  30. Scuba Diving says:

    What …!!!! Is this could happen

  31. MW says:

    They’re all done the same way, photographed at the exact angle to make them look connected. The last two have front “posts” that are cut on 45 degree angles, the first is a right angle that is cut straight on the end. The last one is more complicated, because the yellow piece has a blue “cube” attached to the end of it.

  32. MW says:

    I also think that the first one just has a post at the back on the top. The bottom right part is further to the front, and close to the edge of the platform. Perspective makes them all look connected.

  33. pankaj says:

    it only picture they playing with ur mind it cant be real picture it is possible

  34. trhgtryhy says:

    they are optical only at a certain angle no???

  35. ghazwan says:

    Huh, that is very easy,
    everyone can make such things.
    Get PHOTOSHOP and do what can never be done.!!!!

  36. abdul malik says:

    2nd angal to the lift side made wrong so sighting simolation give you wrong direction in both object. i will corect and then will show you. but only i can make it by pincel . i dont know how i can paste or up load here,i will trye. thanks to creater . he give me some thing new

  37. abdul malik says:

    red black is ok but yellow is wrong so its look like this

  38. jyoti says:

    ooh this is very meraculate

    it is possible


  39. Paul says:

    You have to check shadows and reflections. Not going to reveal trick, but if you look closely at photos and look at shadows cast and reflections in surfaces, you may get a clue about how it’s done.

    Good luck.

  40. Skrillz says:

    the last 1 is fake for sure… u can see the blue block has no shadow which means that the grabbed an image and edited it! :DD

  41. Vanityy says:

    The second one look’s as if it was edited by Photoshop or something.

  42. Charlene says:

    its not photoshop, why dont u google escher?

  43. stacey says:
