Optical illusions

I caught a blog on the 2011 Optical Illusion of the Year. Here's the full article, http://blog.games.yahoo.com/blog/674-behold-the-optical-illusion-of-the-year

It naturally got me thinking of the Mathcad community and the great skills members have creating similar 3D graphs and animations.

So here it is, $25 Amazon gift card to each member that submits their very own optical illusion in the form of an animation [video] or 3D graph [photo].

Some guidelines:

  • Each member can submit a max of 3 optical illusions. *Potential to earn $75 in Amazon gift cards. Feel free to upload as many as you want however.
  • Submissions must be unique and original.
  • Submissions must originate from a Mathcad worksheet. Worksheets can be attached as a reply to this thread.
  • Use the Tag "optical_illusion" (without quotes) when creating your video or photo album.

Submit your animations >>

or

Submit your 3D graphs >>

Good luck!

*As inventory allows

Trying to use the "Submit your animations" failed.

See Attach Files.

Rotating cube.
Frame by frame rotation in one direction.
However, look closely. The idea http://www.procreo.jp/labo/silhouette.swf , http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/sze_silhouette/index.html .

To achieve the effect of the illusion of an image is not as colorful as in the image http://communities.ptc.com/photos/1200.jpg .

Vyacheslav,

Sorry about that, the animations link goes to the video upload page. It's ok, your gif fully animates from this discussion thread which still counts!

Dan please clarify are the original work, if we take the topic of the page http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/index.html , but made in ​​Mathcad.

Thanks.

Vyacheslav.

Re: Optical illusions

Vyacheslav,

The idea was for members to upload 3d plots to PlanetPTC which they have personally created with Mathcad.

I do appreciate the link you have shared. The works on that site are very impressive.
