Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Impossible Triangles Optical Illusion

I figure if I'm starting up posting again there is no better place to start then with a creation by Zsolt. He has been a faithful viewer of this blog and he was the first to comment on the fact that I was going to be starting up posting again. Thanks for the encouragement Zsolt.

The following 3-D optical Illusion was created by Zsolt M. Kovacs-Vajna a professor at the University of Brescia in Brescia Italy.

Eight Impossible triangles

Used w/permission © Zsolt M. Kovacs-Vajna 2005

What you are looking at are 8 identical impossible triangles floating in space. Only the near and far triangles look like the typical illusion. The others look distorted because we are viewing them from a bad perspective (see other impossible triangles here, here, here and here).

Still having trouble wrapping your head around this image play this 3-D video. Hopefully the video will shed some light on the image.

There is only one non-linear (impossible) triangle created and positioned in front of three mirrors: the other 7 triangles are all reflections of the original...
