Here’s a teaser poster for an upcoming movie titled The Dinosaur Project. It was submitted to us by regular fan of ours, who noticed that there is much more than meets the eye at first. I haven’t heard of, nor have I seen this movie before, but what I did notice is the illusion hidden inside its poster!

Seeing the original-sized print, you might miss the dinosaur head at first, while on the other hand – looking at the small thumbnail provided on your right, you might miss seeing the motive head is consisted from!

So what did you see at first? Dinosaur head, or group of people wandering through the woods? Be sure to check our #posters tag for more awesome illusory movie posters!

PS Thanks for all the support! Without all your emails, submissions and encouragement I would loose my enthusiasm for this site long time ago…

    Loving this site. the dolphins one KILLED me for a long time. My girlfriends helped me find it, I was scared to ask a kid!

    I’m sorry, but “lose*”

  • eric

    its okay – but movie looks really lame… another lost world in the center of the earth? ugh

    To see a few more painted illusions, check out this video from V-Sauce which refers to “combos” in the work of Tang Yau Hoong (starts at 3:45)

    I see it.

    “Motif”, not “motive”…

    Do you have an email ? I often see optical illusion and the easyer way to share it with you is by mail.

    Like that : http://www.laboiteverte.fr/illustrations-a-double-sens/



  • Laurent

    ok, i find it .

  • Natalie

    Thank you for posting a new illusion every day. I enjoy coming to your site each day to see what’s new.

    I love it when movie posters do this kind of thing. The movie “Devil” did it too with an upside-down cross.

    Never saw the people in the woods, just people in a cave! Dinosaur of course, nice, clever picture as a poster for a film.

  • Shelia

    WHAT WOOD ? I see the dino head and the peope but no trees !!! ?

  • Karim

    First I saw the people wondering then the head easy. Good job guys :)

  • Jemima duck

    Haha I love this.

  • Kiernan Lockhart

    At first I saw a swan. It’s the dinosaur head sideways. The trees can be seen in the background outlining the dinosaurs head. And what are they walking on? A fallen tree.

  • I Love Illusions

    I saw a dinosaur head right away. Love looking at Vurdlak’s illusion choices every day.

    Considerations “Quantum Brain Theory”: QUANTUM-BRAIN as a Quantum Computer measures the PROBABILITY oF PERCEPTION SCENARIOS .

    Paolo Manzelli egocreanet2012@gmail.com

    Rudolf Arnheim in his book “The visual thinking” writes:

    “..the Cognitive operations called thinking are not privilege of mental processes placed above and beyond perception but the essential ingredients of perception itself.”

    In reality it is an unique probabilistic decoding in which perception and thought interact acting both on quantum probability : therefore our thoughts influence how we see and vice versa.

    Every visual image put in evidence the probable relationship of information related to the figure and background so tha the visual perception is characterized by the measure of probabilities of “coexistence and separability”, allowing us to focus and pay attention to a probable perceptual image.

    If it did not exist any form of conflict between different probability ‘of information size shape and color, the figure would be totally unnoticeable. The difficult distinction between various probability of perception between some possible figures from the background facilitate the “mimicry”.

    Some relationships between the equivalent probability ‘of information between figure and background create optical illusions.
    Also in the dynamics of perception the brain creates or cancels the contours of the figure to allow the established perception of dynamic information from various angles and various dynamic situations.

    Our brain “bet” on the probability ‘that things are a certain way and then produces perceptual scenarios that create the crash of the uncertainty in the prediction of what we perceive at once making us fall into the trap of optical illusions.

    The odds ‘are not only those optical illusions but there are also those auditory, tactile, and olfactory, and unfortunately we have to carefully consider the illusions of order cognitive that take us away from reality’.

    The Quantum Theory of the Brain, we know that the brain therefore does not see it but “expects” probabilistic scenarios based on an innate tendency to the foresight of the future,

    This conceptuality ‘and that was the strength of the science of all time, has found its limit in the permanence of contemporary mechanistic conception of contemporary academic science, and that therefore’ remained crystallized in a cognitive illusion based on reductionism “mechanical” related to the antiquated structure of Euclidean space-time.

    We now know that the brain generates scenarios of Quantum probability ‘perception.. Therefore our vision of ‘environment is a virtual representation that describes the probability’ of possible future interactions between our body and ‘the material -environment around us.

    We may therefore creatively overcome this historically obsolete cognitive reductionism of academy, enhancing creativity ‘conceptual and the operational innovation with the project BREAK -CREATIVE EUROPE 2014/15, developing new mode’ of thought quantum high social responsibility enhancing scientific and artistic expression quantum well through the use of emerging communications technologies of Augmented Reality.

    This cognitive strategy promoted by the program BREAK / of EGOCREANET will make us able to define a new perspective of the development conceptually “holistic”, crucial for a better future and more ‘conscious use of human creativity.

    Based on these considerations on “Quantum Brain Theory”, we will produce a Project title: “Augmented Reality Quantum Brain” with ARXLAB and EGOCREANET, open to an extended partnership.
