Hot dog Space Shuttle
Category: Size and Distance | Added: May 29, 2009 | 15 comments
A classic example of an illusion involving near and far away objects so that the larger distant object appears smaller than the object in the foreground. In this case the photographer is pictured with his mouth open wide ready to consume the space shuttle which looks a bit like a hot dog in this context.

To see this illusion try staring at the yellow dot in the center for a short time. You should start to see the blue dots around the outside begin to disappear and reappear intermittently.

This one is sure to get you thinking, how many legs does this elephant have ? Not as straight forward as it may first appear, this picture has been featured in books and on web sites for years. Have you counted them all yet ?

Duck Rabbit Illusion
Category: Double Meanings | Added: May 28, 2009 | 31 comments
What is this a picture of ? At first glance it may appear that this is a picture of a duck looking towards the left, however if you look closely you'll see that the image is also a rabbit looking towards the right. The beak of the duck and the ears of the rabbit are represented by the same part of the image.

3d Floor Tiles
Category: 3D Illusions | Added: May 28, 2009 | 14 comments
This photograph of the floor tiles in Basilica of St. John Lateran demonstrates an optical illusion that produces a three-dimensional effect. The actual floor tiles are completely flat however the pattern gives the impression of raised boxes.
