Pretty 3D Color Cubes Optical Illusion Wallpaper

This is another original 3D stereoscopic wallpaper you won’t find anywhere else! In order to get the illusion to work, you need to de-focus your eyes similar to those “Magic Eye” brand books that were so popular in the 80s. As you de-focus your eyes the cubes will fuse together and actually look 3D. They will pop out of the page!

You’ll see that some of the cubes will pop out more than others.

Two illusions in one! Here’s the most amazing thing about this eye trick: Not only do the cubes look 3D, but they’ll reverse in your mind like the classic Necker Cube. Basically, the perspective will change. In this example, first you might see that you are looking down onto the green base of the cube. But give your mind a few seconds and the image may switch, so that now you’re looking up at the cube.

I’ve found that to further strengthen this optical illusion, creating several rows helps. This is because the additional rows help allow you to imagine that the blocks in the upper rows are above the lower ones. You might see one row of cubes from one perspective, and the second row from a different angle! This is the illusion that I currently have as the background on my dual-monitor display. (I highly recommend at least one LCD monitor if you don’t already have one!)
