Optical illusions

A page from NowhereElse with quality illusions

• Paper Optical Illusions
This green dragon is more than an ordinary decoration, it's an optical illusion. A picture says more than a thousand words, but in this case we need a video to demonstrate. When you move around it seems like the dragon follows your movement and turns its head. This is a really amazing product. As if this was not enough you can get one yourself - totally free! Click on one of the buttons below to download the templates with instructions. It is a ~133 MB ZIP-file, which contains the high-quality PNG and JPG images. Print it on regular paper with your printer, cut it out, fold and glue. That's all!

The effect is called the Hollow-Face illusion. But, 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, and all images below are included in the collection 3D.Paper.Optical.Illusions.2014.06.18-UrDJUret, which can be downloaded by clicking one of these buttons:

• Pinwheel Optical Illusion
You can download a moving optical illusion (pinwheel) which usually gives a really nice visual effect! Stare at the dot in the middle of the wheel for about 1 minute, then look away from the screen and focus on any object. An amazing bumpy effect should then appear. Click below to download the small Windows (32-bits only) .exe-file illusion. Note: The miniature pinwheel to your right is too small to give any effect.

• Optical Illusion Video
There is a short movie which gives a similiar effect to the Pinwheel illusion, described above. Click the symbol for fullscreen to make it work. You find this video on YouTube.

• Moving Still 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 :-). Click on images to view them full-size.
