Optical Illusion 3-D Arrow Always Points Right (And Left In A Mirror)

May 2, 2018


This is a video demonstration (below, above is a static image unless you do a bat-spin) of a 3-D arrow optical illusion that always appears to point right when turned in 180-degree increments (and viewed from the proper angle). In the demonstration, mathematician (and the arrow's creator) Kokichi Sugihara eventually picks the thing up so you can see how it works, which kind of made my brain hurt. "You sure that's not the ice cream sandwich I just watched you try to eat in one bite?" What? "Brain freeze." Huh? "Brain freeze." Huh? "Brain freeze." Huh? "Brain fr-- oh I get it." *wink*

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Marco with the cat, who -- okay, which one of you just hissed at me?

    Alright, so I was just looking at the picture and was like, "Huh that's pretty cool it does always point right" and then I realized what a complete idiot I am.

    I was looking at it and being equally stupid, was like, "Duh, mirrors show the reflection which is the opposite so of course the arrow would point different directions." Pretty cool illusion…

    Things aren't always what you think you see...so if you should ever be called as an eye witness for anything make sure your 110% sure!!

  • Meh

    FYI I was first but it got detected as spam. Just feel the need to point that out. Because - you know.

    Oh and think this would be a really cool kid's school project. Shouldn't be too hard to do and you could use a bar of soap, PlayDo or wax to just press the shape with your fingers.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Constant pr0n-spamming finally caught up to you, huh?

  • Jenness

    I guess it finally has. Meh - i had a good run.
