Cigarettes and Buildings Illusion


Hardly a week has passed since we last featured one of the Greeenpro’s creations, more specifically – Dots in Motion optical illusion video. No matter the short time span, we already received two new excellent illusions from the same author! For example, check these two cigarettes on your right – just by looking at the picture, which one would you say is bigger? Are you sure?

Same goes for the three L-Shaped objects below: there are at least 2 L-Shaped roofs on below buildings that are exact same in size. Which ones are they?

To see the solution, expand the hidden explanatory pictures after the jump, and be sure to see Greenpro’s original videos explaining the illusion here. Both illusions are just a variation of something we’ve already seen at some point before, yet after seeing these many times, amazingly they still work – at least for me they do.

    The cigarette one is clear. The other… the solution doesn’t help me any. I see the same three buildings, with different colors. Any explanation?

      The 3 L shape building is actually a drawing of 3 L shape building. But in the first Pic, there is a GREEN paper (L shape) on top of the centre L shape building….

      So to proof that the Middle and bottom drawing are the same….he simply move the GREEN Paper to the bottom L Shape building (the red one), and it’s fit perfectly.

      So…the 2 identical L Shape building is the one in the middle and the one in the bottom.

      Get it ? :D

      i think he move the green l to the red l to show that the 2 are the same size

    I would really like to +1 this on Google+!

    Wow, usually these size illusions are pretty easy to figure out, but that cigarette one is so well done that I finally had to measure them to be sure!

      The same, here! Congrats to the author!

    On the three L shapes, the green as actual a piece of felt, showing you it’s the bottom two.

  • Richard

    the bottom 2 are the same Andrewpoky
    You can see he has a cut out GREEN shape lying over the middle one in the first picture and it’s lying over the bottom one in the second picture. Really cool illusion I thought the bottom and the top one were the same size.

    The top one is my favorite optical illusion of all times and I cannot get enough of it! I love this variant of it!

    the building gets wider, which makes the ciggerate “smaller”

  • ellis

    On the “L” shapes he took the Green “L” cutout and moved it over the top of the Red. So the green and red are the same size.

    Cool beans.

      Same size, same angles, all the THREE ‘L’ buildings!

    Andrewpoky and Tim: it isn’t that difficult. On the photos you see the artist moving a green shape around which apparenly covers the downside two rooftops.
