Watch the video--it's amazing.

I wouldn't usually dp anything like this, but I actually printed it off and made one (http://elspeth.frih.net/love/dragon1.jpg). It really is as good as the one in the video.

Now all I have to do it make a giant one and stick it out my window.[/url]

after the second or third time watching the vidio, i could sort of see through it, but it was hard!
i think i'll make one.
Ellosha
How fun! I may have to make myself one of those, or something very similar.
Bookface
nifty. I'm making one, and maybe I'll work out my own design too. Doesn't seem like it could be too hard.
Vanilla
I want one!!! If I make one on my own, it will not be a dragon, it will be a hamster. Dragons are too scary. Laughing

That was a good one. Thanks for sharing it... I've been jaded by all the old dancing circle and crossed line illusions that people seem so fond of collecting on the internet, so this was refreshing. Love the whole page.
Cheers!

http://www.grand-illusions.com/ is probably one of the best website ever.

try looking for these on grand-illusions.com:

Dragon Forks, Fore-Edge Painting, Paper Clip Top, Puzzle Nut, and Hurrican Balls.

that guy has a very nice "Professor"-ish voice to him, doesn't he?

lol - mine has already been round everyone in the office. It seems to be impressing everybody. Fantastic effect though - I'd love to try and create my onw.

How hard are they to put together, people who have done it already. Those tabs looked complicated.
mw91
omg i made onei thought it wouldnt work, but its crazy!! Shocked
erlendhg
WOW! That was so incredible... cool and amazing. Never seen anything like that. (fascinated) Smile

That totally reminds me of something that I saw on google video last night. You watch a screen with black and white moving lines for about a minute and a half, after that minute and a half you look away and everything you see bends and distorts due to the interference on your vision from the black and white moving lines.

I'll find the link and post it here later. =D

Wow, that's one neat little dragon. I knew that optical illusions were amazing, but something like this is print-worthy. I think I'll be making one of my own just to creep out my family - they're in need of a good scare, or, err, laugh.

Gotta love how our eyes tend to trick us; I used to love optical illusion books as a child. Too bad they didn't include anything like this in them.

good one .
will be looking for this

They are really easy to put together. There are only 3 tabs which need sticking down (on the head), and besides that all you have to do is get the folds right. The best thing to do is either print out two copies (one to cut out & make and one as a guide to where all the folds are), or print one a single copy and keep the .pdf open on your screen. The 'valley fold' / 'mountain fold' labelling system makes it very easy to get right.

Good luck!
Hammy
Heh.Pritty much what everyone else said lol.. that is pritty awesome!.
I wouldnt mind making one myself.

Tho i hate pictures where the eyes follow you lol. Like on billboards.
gltsry
How can I get one??
Kaisonic
Wow, that's pretty amazing. It really looks like its head is following one around the room. But if one looks hard enough, you can actually see the real structure as it physical is.

loool ielieve this actually works xD

That is such a cool illusion! I love it! Very Happy
