Rubik’s anamorphic illusion by Brusspup

Rubik’s anamorphic illusion was created by a guy who goes by the name Brusspup on the internet. He has been working on this anamorphic illusion for some time now and we could finally see the result just 2 days ago. He is an artist and a fan of science and if you like his latest video that you can watch below than check out all his other videos under his YouTube account.

We can’t always trust what we see

What Brusspup does is an exercise in anamorphosis, a conjuring trick that takes advantage of how our brains make sense of the world. Once the viewer finds the right angle,  the drawing leaps into three dimensions. That’s because in that exact location, the brain is presented with an impossible, contradictory set of inputs that it automatically reassembles into a coherent illusion.

Recreating the video

According to the artist these are so simple but always so amazing to see. To recreate the video, use this images provided by Brussup.

Make sure that the focal point of the lens is pointed at the focal point of the image. It may take several tries, but eventually, you should be able to line them up well enough to recreate the illusion. Good luck!

Rubik’s cube museum exhibition

The Rubik’s Cube museum exhibition is getting ready to celebrate the Rubik’s cubes 40th anniversary. For this occasion a museum exhibition will be launched traveling worldwide. The  7,000 sf traveling exhibition, is slated to open at Liberty Science Center in April 2014  and tour science centers, cultural institutions and alternative exhibit spaces around the world for up to seven years. Highly interactive and immersive, the exhibition will invite visitors to examine why a small puzzle became, and remains, a phenomenon that resonates with a global audience and connects to fields across the spectrum of human creativity.

Interview with Erno Rubik

Rubik was an architect teaching a class at the Budapest College of Applied Arts in 1974 when he decided to build a cube to teach students about 3D space. He soon realized it could become a hit toy when students and fellow teachers couldn’t put it down.

Rubik insists he “discovered” the cube rather than invented it.

“In my view, it’s part of nature, and it’s not an artificial object; it’s a natural one,” he said.

Watch the interview below with Erno Rubik, the inventor of the Rubik’s cube.
