Flying Through City Stereogram


Frans-Jan Wind sends beautiful, yet scary illusion of a city. Wait for the image to load (or open it full size), and you will feel like flying through a city! Just like Christopher Walken did in his very own optical illusion. Be sure to check Scary Spider as well, but I warn you, those of you that suffer from arachnophobia or are submissive to seizures, shouldn’t watch these animations for too long :) Here’s Wind’s explanation: “I found this illusion on a very nice acid house and minimal techno site. (Don’t know about copyrights…) What I saw at first was not what was happening. For a moment I thought I went through the city instead of watching a loop…” For similar check: Stereo Dino, 3D Fireplace, Stereo Forrest, Tube Of Illusion

    It’s cool, you think you’re getting closer to the building but your acctually not.

  • elisabetta

    It’s great, but after a while, my head aches :D

  • Ashton

    Very awesome. It is good that there are some moving Illusions on this website, and in the Widget. This one makes you want to move your head closer and closer, and sort of draws you in. Hurts your eyes after a while of staring :P

    Anyone notice that this looks like the skyline of Houston? I think I recognize the Wells Fargo Bank building.

    Awesome!Did you notice the tall building to the right has a sort of “face” towards the bottom?

    • omg! yes! like when you stare at the top most part of the building, “face” appears in your peripheral vision ^^ ahahaha, and I thought I was the only one who can see….xD ahaha

  • Jeff

    Yeah, that is definitely Houston, TX.

  • Neat-Nit

    Awsome! I love it!

    Why does everyone think they’re the first post? Cool illusion though.

    Thats rubbish. It’s only flashing and moving closer to a building.

  • Simple but true

    Its ok…. A bit obvious though lol

  • dvjghv

    heh i was so fooled by this that the buildings actually look bigger to me now than when i started looking at them. that is, they dont seem to shrink subconsciously backwards every now and then like most of these things do.

    … Er, I hope you understood that… I’m not sure I did…

  • mike

    All it is is black makes it go down and white goes up…. thats why its ‘moving’

    A few frames inverted, zoomed and slightly rotated. Very coarse and unconvincing

  • Anonymous

    nice one……… but i figured it out

    it’s not zooming in

  • duh!!

    arachnaphobia is a fear of spiders, genius.

    i just realized the 2 different colors
    the white and black on is in one spot
    the black and white is like 1/2 an inch away so it looks like its moving…
    the spider one was much better..i didnt realize it on any of these kid of illusion until i saw this one
    p.s white and black means more white
    black and white means more black
