3D Dog illusion

Most of you will have probably seen this floating around the internet already (including me) but I decided to write about it none the less.

The 3D dog illusion is a brilliant eye-illusion to make and it works perfectly!
Basically, you print out the dog and fold it as explained on the worksheet (be sure to fold the head INVERTED though, or it will not work). It works better in color than in black and white, by the way!

What is the 3D dog illusion? When you have constructed the dog that just came running out of your printer, it's gaze will follow you like Sauron's eye follows the Ring of Power.
But the Awesome (yet creepy) thing about this dog is that it appears as though his entire head is moving!
Please note that you have to close one eye, or look through a camera.

This video will explain everything:

So having seen that (a few months back) I decided today that it was time to actually build one.
AND IT WORKS!!! :D So awesome!

Here are some pictures:

I didn't make a video myself because the one posted above shows how it works. My creepy little dog works exactly the same!
It even works when using two eyes! But you have to stand further away to see the illusion.
The brain is a wonderfull thing isn't it?

Here's a link to a forum where you can download the dog and get some tips:


Peace out!
