YouTube illusion and science channel Brusspup recently did an anamorphic illusion project in which he photographed a few random objects resting on a piece of paper (e.g. a Rubik’s cube, a roll of tape, and a shoe), skewed them, printed them out as high-resolution prints, and then photographed them at an angle to make the prints look just like the original objects.
Brusspup has also made the photographs available for download if you’d like to try this project for yourself (click these for the higher-res versions). These should be printed on 8.5×14-inch paper:
This is like what those street artists do with those large-scale drawings created on sidewalks, except done with a camera rather than chalk.
Something tells us printer companies might be interested in using this concept to promote their photo printers. It’d make for some pretty interesting commercials.
