Nifty trick - 3D GIFs!

Postby Dave » Wed 26 Feb 2014 03:06 GMT

Here's a funny thing - animated GIFs with a 3D effect, and no need for cumbersome glasses, holoprojectors or anything!

It's interesting, but I can't see it catching on. To me, it makes things look as if everything's happening in a cage!

As an aside, the last issue of Private Eye I read suggested that Benedict Cumberbatch might be getting a little bit of over-exposure. I'm starting to see what they mean - he crops up twice in this collection!

Neat trick to confuse the senses like that, but I agree looks like they are all in large cages.

I found it quite easy to ignore the cage effect once I'd got used to it.

Meanwhile, I came across some more optical illusions today. Some of these are great! Also, "Being Cheeky" was good for a laugh.

I think I prefer the ones in your link - much more thought's gone into them!

Neat, quite the illusion. I like the first one, took some looking at to see the lady in red was actually part of the picture.

I didn't even realise that until you said it, Graeme. :D I just thought she was a curious passer-by. Wow.
