Here’s a simple one for you. My question is how many impossible details can you find in this image below? There are many more than two. Be sure to observe the table with patience, and you will find many impossible and funny details. Enjoy!

  • Essie

    Five I think.

  • i count four


  • Max


  • Sam

    I found four

  • carboose

    there a 6

  • Captain Ron

    I’m pretty sure there are 4…

    1. The fork tongs

    2. The glasses

    3. The ashtray (notice the top rim, closer to you)

    4. The coffee cup handles

  • Patrick

    What about the shadow…

  • popcorn man

    i know there are 4…not sure whether that background should count as five

  • Static

    There are five the coffe is three different colors the coffe cup handle the fork tongs and the cigarrete holder

  • static

    And the CUps the closest one ends up behind the other

  • somethingtodo

    i got 4

  • Daft SPARTAN-117

    maybe 4… the ashstray didn’t pop out to me until i say everything else

  • urtx

    The three colour stripes on the surface of the coffee. Shouldn’t it be plain?

  • The Big Lebowski

    11. I’m not sure if the left wine glass reflection through the right one qualifies as number 12, and the oddly clean ashtray is number 13.

  • chris


    ashtray and mug can be real

  • MIMG Bruin/ (000RAH!)

    {Also}: The wine glasses are definitely different shapes; the gradient of red changes it’s spectrum of hue, there’s the odd red-red-green-red patern, and of course the rectangular geometries vary on the mat.

    Keep it up=) I wholeheartedly support & endorse this creative-thinking site! Bravo!

    I get the fork tongs, that’s 01
    Then there’s the wine glasses that’s 10
    Then the coffee cup handle (which could be possible) is 11

    … Think binary :)

    i found 9 the coffe cup has 2 the fork has 1 the wine cups have 3 the ash tray has 3

  • LSN

    I only see 4. The coffee cup colors don’t count for me because it could just be an artistic touch and not necissarily an imposibility. You’ve seen reflections on coffee make it look like there were shapers in it, haven’t you?

    wine glasses, cup handle, fork prongs, ashtray (although the ash tray and cup handle are not too impossible).

    I actually Know the artist who did this peice and I can tell you that their are 17 Impossible Details. I won’t tell you what they are,but the majority of them have to with how the light reflects off objects.

    P.S. The Coffee cup is not impossible to make. Sorry!

  • john

    Sure you do…

  • Bailey

    the fork, cup handle, glass 1, glass2,ash tray and the coffee itself.

    An ashtray can be diiferent levels if you make it that way, same with the coffee cup. There not “impossible”

  • Anonymous

    Somebody said something about the coffee being three different colors. DUH! Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that just shading so that the coffee looks more real? OR maybe I’m the stupid one, and I’m completely wrong. If I am, sorry… didn’t mean to offend anyone. :’/

    not all the things i will list are impossible, but i will point them out regardless.
    the right glass is smaller than the left glass.
    The top of the right glass and the bottom are in shadow, and the middle has lighting, the lighting of the glass is more than the left, however the left is lighter on the top, suggesting light distortion.
    The coffee is darker on the left, yet clearly the light is coming from the left as we can see in the glasses.
    the ashtray, there is the outside edge which clearly goes higher, yet the inside edge (the one on the left) clearly becomes SHORTER.

    the right glass should be tinted red, or pink, whatever colour that liquid is.
    the top of the liquid in the left glass is lighter toward the top, yet darker toward the bottom, wheras we already know the light is coming at a horizontal level…
    the rectangles in the background are lighter at the top left and darker bottom right, meaning the light is then in ANOTHER direction, we cannot see where the light truly is coming from because the only shadows are those present on the objects, and there are none on the surface.
    the cigarette in the tray, it is darker on the lower side of the filter, as you would expect, but the light to the ashtray appears to be heading left. meaning the light would be on the other side, and it would also mean the shadow on the outside of the coffee cup would NOT be there.

    I love illusions!

    you can see some dots that make up a face! please tell me if i’m wrong! these r the ones I saw: coffee cup,coffee liquid,3 wine glasses,ashtray,cigarrette in ashtray,fork type thing,but with the fork I think there might be something else with it ‘coz the second spiky bit doesn’t really end up anywhere! please tell me wat u think ’bout the fork.
