Roger Penrose devised the Penrose Triangle in the 1950′s describing it as, “impossibility in its purest form.”
i’m off to buy a lego set and trick the shit out of my kid
that’s pretty fucking cool
i can’t believe that’s not shopped
Not shopped. Look closely.
a penrose triangle, you get me every time
i can’t stop staring
Easy. It’s all about camera angle.
If its so easy, then why does my head hurt to look at it?
Seriously, I can’t even comprehend how the bricks are arranged to achieve the effect. I’m almost certain the shadow is shooped, just to make it more harder to rationalize the whole thing.
DUH! But it’s also about being creative enough to come up with the idea. Kind of like when people say “EASY! It’s just a little square piece of paper with some sticky adhesive on the back”. But lets see you come up with an invention as good as Post-It notes.
its an illusion. its the angle the photo was taken at. the two sides with the prongs showing are laying on the table while the smooth side is standing vertically, just at the right angle so that it would appear as though they are connected.
You need to start thinking with PORTALs.
Look at the shadow, the end closest to us slopes down.
The Shadow gives it away.. next time use a light box!

That’s sad. I’ve seen this stuff on 4chan a lot before. People have already done it. It’s not really ‘new’.
This makes my brain angry.
