Like optical illusions? You’re going to love these. And the best part of it is, you can recreate them in your own home.

An optical illusion is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. The information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a perception that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source.

A YouTube user who goes by the name of Brusspup has garnered quite a lot of followers by creating videos of dazzling optical illusions of his own making. Take a look:

And when you’re done, you can print out the patterns and have a go at the animations yourselfcatsprocketsrotating spherewalking stick figurePac-Man eating bullets,spinning weathervanetemplate.

The slat-lined template must be printed on a transparency sheet and, brusspup reminds us, if you’re printing on an ink jet, you must use the transparencies that are made specifically for ink jet printers. Also, don’t fiddle with the size settings, otherwise you’ll probably end up with an optical illusion that is more baffling than it’s meant to be.
