Design Interior: Optical Illusions In Reality (2) 2Here optical illusions are integrated in interior designs. Its really quite a nice idea to do this. The visitors who aren't standing in the proper angle won't have a clue about the concept. They wont be able to make out what these lines & curves on the walls are for. This way you can choose whom to share this little secret with.

2. Illusions Of Faces:

illusionIf you watch the above images from your seat in front of the computer, Mr. Angry is on the left, and Mrs. Calm is on the right. Get up from your seat, & move back. They switch places! This illusion was created by Dr. Aude Oliva & Philippe G. Schyns, MIT.


Here is another piece of work created by Dr. Aude Oliva (Ph.D. Brain and Cognitive Sciences, MIT) & Dr. Antonio Torralba (Ph.D. Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory). Again if you watch the above images while seated in front of the computer, you might think that these people are not happy. Now get up from your seat & walk a few paces & you will be astonished to see the change in their expressions. Both the images are a great piece of work & we think none others were able to generate anything this similar in Photoshop.

3. Elevator Floor Illusion:
