Table Tops Optical Illusion


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.

    Wow, I was sure that it was some weird monitor-aspect-ratio-trick thing, but I got a ruler out, and measured it, on the monitor, and they’re the same (within 1/16th of an inch)

    Just WOW… I can usually see right through this sort of illusion, but this one has me beat. I can’t believe it…

    I can just barely see it if I start covering the legs, but it still looks as if they’re different.

    It would be considerate of you to credit the people whose hard work you copy here on this site. In this instance, the person is Roger Shepard of Stanford University, who first published this illusion in 1981 in his chapter in the book, “Perceptual Organization.”
