Okay.... the desktop & swag threads are fun, but how about some cool optical illusions?

Here's one that I think you'll all agree is way cool :cool:

Click here first (http://users.skynet.be/J.Beever/images/swim.jpg)


Then click here after you've seen the illusion (http://users.skynet.be/J.Beever/images/wrongview-pool.jpg) to see how it's done. The artist drew it on the sidewalk of Glasgow.

Cheers!

Hehe, those are some nice illusions.

I figured it was a distorted perspective view, but I didn't know it was that extreme. Nice job to the artist :p

That's amazing, I can't Imagine spending that much time on a drawing.

i remember getting an email with loads of those pavement drawings in a few months back. A lot of them were better than the ones on that site. Don't have it anymore i'm afraid..

Some of those drawings are amazing... I would imagine it would be pretty hard to plan it out too, so when you looked at the right angle it would look like its supposed to.
