Daniel Shiu and Andrew Lipson must have worked their butt off to construct these wonderfull Lego recreations of Escher’s work! They started this project after they finished rendition of Escher’s “Ascending and Descending”, making it 4th Escher picture rendered in LEGO. No camera magic tricks (like David Blaine uses ;), but the picture was taken from exactly the right place. Be sure first to view original Escher’s picture “Relativity” and then jump to Lipson’s original website, where he provided many amazing pictures of their creations! Enjoy!
Does this object below seem to move? Does it make you nervous? I forgot the complete explanation of this illusion, but I remember it has something to do with few of your brain areas beeing too near to eachother. It makes them falsely interpret perceived information.. or something… Try to stare at this for a minute… it will drive you crazy, CRAZY I tell ya!!!
Just like we had Transparent Desktops, Freaky Optical Illusion, Transparent Dorm Doors… now we also have Transparent Magazines. These magazines were printed in a way, that when you place them infront of yourself correctly, they appear transparent, and show part of your figure perfectly. For more of these funny pictures, jump inside this article.
One of our loyal fans, sent us these two funny pictures (another one inside the post). They were previously posted on college humor where our fan found them – but the origin is unknown. This loaded tons of ideas in my head… can’t wait to visit my friend who lives in a college dorm and share this with him!

Look at it for few seconds, and the image of Margaret Thatcher will accur. The secret lyes inside this new magical image. Can you see the vampire? More afterimage optical illusions: “Jesus”, “Glowing Bulb”, “USA Flag”, “Batman”….
A high clarity mirage of a modern city appears off the shore of Penglai City in eastern China’s Province Shandong. This event occured on Sunday, and can be explained like this: a mirage is formed when moisture in the air becomes warmer than the temperature of sea water, which refracts rays of sunlight to create reflections of the landscape in the sky. If you like Mirages, there’s a Mirage Toy I reviewed previously.
Mists rising on the shore created an in-depth image of a city, with modern tall buildings, wide city streets including cars as well as crowds of people all clearly visible. The city of Penglai had been soaked by two days of rain before the rare weather phenomenon occurred. In Penglai, on the tip of Shandong Peninsula, many mirages have been recorded throughout the history. Because of that city is also known as a dwelling place of the gods.
If you liked Virgin’s Find 75 Bands also known as “Flex Your Music Muscle“, you’ll probably love Lonely Planet’s “Cities” as well. The approach is little different this time; your assignment is to spot 45 cities in the wallpaper below. Some are directly mentioned, while others will give you a headache. There are 45 cities represented in this picture, now go on and find them all! Click on the image for higher res, and start finding them. When you’re done, there are few more search games for you to try. Just check the icons below this poster!
It’s hard to imagine these two tables have exactly the same shape of their tops. You don’t believe me? Simply print this image, cut the first top with your scisors, and then place it above other table’s top and you’ll see they align perfectly. This magic trick can also be proven with Photoshop.
