Penrose Triangle Marble by Worldsday Penrose Triangle Marble by Worldsday
Tool: Blender

This optical illusion gif involved a bit of masking wizardry, but the result was worth it.

Everyone says it hurts their brain. I don't get that.

... Should I be worried that the motions of the ball actually makes sense or seem natural for me?

Demonstrating that the object is not really impossible, it just doesn't have the shape one tends to assume when one sees it from a particular viewpoint. But I suspect that the ball would appear to grow and shrink, like people in a certain distorted room...

Nice! Kind of how a mobius strip with 4 sides might behave.

But it only has three sides!

WoodMath Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I stand corrected. But much as the möbius strip is only one side (with the illusion of two) this has 3 sides (with the illusion off four) which is what I was trying to get at.

Anyway... Still nice work. Mind if I ask what program(s) you used to create it?

I stared at this for so long, I am totally obligated to fave it.

This is a really neat twist on the original illusion, and you executed it excellently. I like how this ties the idea of a one-sided Mobius Strip to the Penrose Triangle.

That's a really awesome idea, and great execution. It might be a bit better if the color values were more different between the two surfaces on the far right, though.

I thought this optical illusion was confusing before, but you've taken it to the next level... I can't even imagine how hard this was to make! This is simply wonderful.
