Mind-blowing Anamorphic Illusions by Brasspup

After seeing lots of anamorphic illusions (see here, here and here) you get really bored about this whole thing. Yesterday, however, a friend of mine showed me a video titled “Amazing Anamorphic Illusions” that just blew my mind. A master of such illusions, going by the Brusspup nickname, posted this video just two days ago and it already has more than 2 millions views.

It shows three different anamorphic illusions – a Rubik’s cube, a shoe, and a tape roll. The trick of anamorphism is seeing the object from just the right angle, in which case it will seem perfectly normal and clear. Once you move, the image gets distorted, and leaves you wondering – what the heck did just happen?

The best part is that Brasspup also gives you downloadable files of Rubik’s cube, tape, and shoe. You can print them out on 8.5 x 14″ (or A4) paper and do the same trick yourself!

    Didn’t look as good when I printed and cut them, I guess it’s all about the angles

      if you still have them, look at them while covering one eye. the camera works because it gives you a view from a single perspective. Two eyes mess up the illusion. try using just one.
