• 3D Paper Optical Illusions
This green dragon is more than an ordinary decoration, it is an optical illusion! A picture says more than a thousand words, but in this case we need videos to demonstrate. When you move, it seems like the dragon follows your movement and turns its head! The effect is called a Hollow-Face illusion.

How does it work? If we move around when viewing a solid object, our brain knows how the object we are looking at should behave. However the dragon gives us the wrong clues, because we mis-interpret what its shape is. We assume that the nose of the dragon is pointing out towards us, but in fact the dragon's head is concave.

There are many variants of the original dragon illusion by Jerry Andrus. All templates below are included in the collection 3D.Paper.Optical.Illusions.2014.06.18-UrDJUret. You can get them right now - totally free! Just download the 133 MB ZIP-file, which contains the templates and instructions (high-quality PNG and JPG images). Then print your favourite figure(s) on regular paper with your printer, cut it out, fold and glue. That's all!

Here is a text-list of all paperfigures included in The Ultimate Collection Of Paper Optical Illusions: 3D.Paper.Optical.Illusions.2014.06.18-UrDJUret.

• Motion Aftereffect Illusions
It is indeed possible to see things in a different way.. These powerful motion aftereffect illusions may make you hallucinate for a short while. The effect is harmless and really easy to achieve; Simply stare at the middle of the illusion for about 90 seconds, then look away from the screen and focus on any object. An amazing bumpy and wavy effect should then appear! See it to believe it, we provide two awesome videos!

View the videos below in fullscreen to make the illusions work.

If you have an older Windows PC (32-bit OS) then you can download and run an small .exe-file with a pinwheel motion aftereffect illusion, which usually also gives a really nice visual effect!

• Still Moving Images
Below are handpicked still images that looks like they're moving. You may print these on paper aswell, the effect will still be there :-). You can click on the images to view them full-size.

• Animated Optical Illusions
