Upside Down Stairs - This is a nice one. Stare for awhile and it'll switch perspective. We made this ourselves and am quite proud of it. It's a very satisfying moment when you're staring at it and it finally adjusts perspective for you.

Take a peek inside our blog for some of the coolest optical illusions ever created. Or explore below...

moving red spiral 8/18/2011 - Moving spots illusion
This is another one I think is just awesome. No thinking. Just stare at the spots. No thinking? Hah!

You can't help but to think why in the world the spots keep appearing to move even though you know they certainly aren't. It just might make you smile as your eyes twitch with excitement!

never ending staircase08/14/2011 - We just built a never ending staircase! This is fun in more ways than one. First of all, the steps seem to continue to go down (or up) forever. Second, the placement of the flagpoles are appear to intersect the illusion in an impossible way. Third, we like it because it's just pretty!

Also, as compared to many of the other never ending staircase illusions, this one is huge! You could set it as your background if you like, or if you want to print it or use it in a presentation at your school, it'll print great. It's another original, so at least for now, you'll only find it here!
