Optical Illusions

Optical illusions are amazing! I have recently been exploring the Wonderful World of Optical Illusions, and here are a few of my favorites:

The Café Wall

This is one you may have seen before. It consists of stacked black and white squares that create the illusion of curved lines in between them.the-cafe-wall-illusion-expplained.jpg

The Necker Cube

The cool thing about this is that you can view it one of two waysuntitled

Now for the grand finale of all this cube business:


INTRODUCING… THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE! Just look at it. I’ll say no more.
