Warped and Bent Illusion Video

We haven’t had a nifty video illusion for a while, so I decided to share another fabulous creation by greeenpro2009. As you will see shortly, it’s nothing we haven’t already seen, but what greeenpro did, he combined two old school illusions into one, and posted a video clip of his work. I think this should be the final example/proof for Seemingly Bent category. As the author himself explained, it took FOREVER to create and set this up.

You should check the Checker Board video, and some other works by greeenpro2009 if you already haven’t – I promise you loads of professionally created content and interesting selection of illusions showcased.

  1. The horizontal lines are not all parallel. The paper is shifted on some. You can download a pixel ruler and see they are not. I get the idea, but it would be cooler if they were actually parallel.

  4. @Annishia: Strips of identical black and white squares are placed such that squares of the same colour aren’t completely lined up. The vertical boundary lines are zig-zagged, making the horizontal lines between the strips appear to be tilted…

    Now, what *I* don’t understand is your and fossda’s and many other people’s obsession with being the ‘first commenter’. :-/

    @Richard: Totally! Simple but elegant! I feel like trying it out.

  5. Fantastic! The mind needs a little rethinking every once in a while. It only proves, once again, that things aren’t always as one’s perception leads them to believe!
