Impossible Balls Visual Optical Illusion

Okay, we have something very funny and intriguing for you, and this visual optical illusion is something that defies the laws of physics! And, it’s all in video!

Truth be told, lately, we have to admit that we’ve gotten quite fond of optical illusions on video, because, they say that a photo’s worth 1,000 words, but we all know that video is worth 1,000 pictures!

So, let’s take a closer look at this visual optical illusion; get ready to be amazed (well, until the guys starts showing how it works at least).

What to see?

As the video starts, you’re seeing a construction that’s supported by four pillars, two larger, and two smaller. Naturally, everything you would put on the top, should come down, but, look and see what happens when you put a ball at the bottom. The ball magically goes up! And not only one! Multiple balls, do the same thing, and defy the laws of gravity! How’s that for a mighty illusion? Or, perhaps it’s real, and sometimes found a way to defy the laws of physics?  Well, not quite! Just keep watching the video!

How it works?

Well, when you pass the 25th second of the video, the camera changes, and you see that  it’s nothing more than a really good visual optical illusion based on some clever architecture.  There’s no point in explaining what happens and how it works, because, the video has 1 minute and 22 seconds, and only 25 seconds show the illusion, then the rest of the minute  is spent showing you how this illusion works.

And what’s best, is that you can create this type of illusion by yourselves!
