Have you ever gone to a party and it seems as if it is just lacking something? Perhaps they have everything set up properly and there are a lot of interesting people there but, unfortunately, it just seems to be a flop. In many cases, it is just a matter of not providing proper entertainment and it doesn’t need to be anything elaborate, just keep people interested and they’re going to remember the party as being a hit. If you’re looking for something to do at a party that is simple to set up but will really catch people’s attention, [More]
There is an old saying that, not everything is as it appears, and you are about to see the truthfulness of that saying come to life in front of you. When you first look at the image in the video, it appears as if it is a piece of paper with several diamonds, and each row becomes lighter as it moves down toward the bottom. Nobody would argue with that point but soon, you will see that it is just an optical illusion. In reality, much of what you are seeing is the same shade, even though it looks as [More]
Imagine yourself seeing a 9-feet tall dragon standing in front of you and its head follows you wherever you go. If you can’t, just look at this amazing dragon illusion standing on an office chair. As you can see, the dragon’s face follows the camera wherever it goes. And no, it’s not fake. Thanks to Jerry Andrus, the iconic American magician who created this amazing illusion. The concept behind this 3D dragon illusion is not really new. In fact, you can easily find a Gathering for Garder 3D dragon template so you can make your own. Creepy but interesting illusion! [More]
There are many people who enjoy looking at optical illusions but when they are actually able to take part in them as a type of experiment, they take on an entirely new perspective. In fact, these optical illusions can even be considered science experiments, and in many cases you can do them at home. Some of them are going to require a little more than a few pieces of paper but there are others that are a bit more complex. The optical illusion that you see in this little experiment will require that you purchase an old polarizing monitor, but [More]
Are you someone who enjoys science experiments? They not only help to introduce us to the world around us, there are times when they can help us to understand more about ourselves as well. This is not only true of some complex experiments that we may have done in science class, it is also true of some relatively simple experiments that we do at home as well. These are some of those simple options. The little tricks you will see in this video all involve something we have at home, paper. They are among some of the most basic tricks [More]
It would be difficult to find anyone who has never played with dice before. Although they could be part of a game of chance, they are also something that can be used in a number of other ways as well. As a familiar object, they may also be used as part of an optical illusion that most of us would find rather incredible. That is what you will see in this video. When you first look at this video, you will see what appears to be a stack of floating dice. You may actually wonder how he is able to [More]
When you look at the images in this video laying on a table, it may not look like anything special. In fact, it may not appear to be anything more than geometric shapes. They do have a strange beauty of their own but if we were to see them in our own homes, we would hardly consider them to be a piece of art. When you pull a transparent page with lines across it, however, it really takes on a life of its own. This is a type of optical illusion that is sure to amaze your senses. It may [More]
Some tests are very easy for us to take and others may be quite difficult. At times, there may even be a test that appears to be easy on the surface but when you begin to try to do it, you quickly find out that it is one of the hardest things you have ever tried in your life. That just may be your experience when you try this particular test. Some people can do it easily but others find it to be incredibly hard. The concept behind the test is easy to understand. You will see a brick ledge [More]
There are many different types of optical illusions, some of which can be quite difficult to understand. Science has even attempted to explain why they trick the eyes and the mind, but they are often limited in their ability to give a proper explanation. Some optical illusions require complex computer programming but others, such as the one you are about to see, simply require some cards and a pair of scissors. This optical illusion is known as a hypercard, and it can really trick the mind into wondering how it is even possible. It uses a single card from a [More]
When it comes to optical illusions, many of us try to to see beyond what is taking place in front of us to see if we can truly understand what is behind it. As a matter of fact, even science has gotten involved in this regard and they have a number of theories as to why an optical illusion may trick the mind and the eyes. At other times, however, an optical illusion may border on a science experiment and it is not tricking you, what you are seeing is reality. That is what you’re going to see in this [More]
Although we may be comfortable with the thought that everything is as we see it in the world, that is rarely the case. As a matter of fact, there may be times when we see something quite different than reality, and that is especially true when it comes to optical illusions. There are many different types of optical illusions but one of them is known as forced perspective. This technique uses the illusion to make an object appear closer, further away, smaller or larger. In part, it is your perspective that is being used when you see these 3-D art [More]
When you see the world around you, you perceive it as being full of color and variety. The fact of the matter is, however, color is only an illusion and it does not exist in the real world. What does exist is light, and it depends upon how the light is reflected off of an object as to how we see the color that truly exists. For example, when the light reflects off of an Apple, the wavelengths that appear red reaches the eye and we see it as being red. Would you believe me if I told you could [More]
