Mathematician Kokichi Sugihara from Meiji University Japan has proven once again that he the greatest illusion inventor of the time. Apart from creating mind-twisting images, he also creates real-life 3D objects which seems to be ignoring the laws of our universe.
The illusion still works when the arrow is placed next to a mirror and the reflected image always points left. In his video, Sugihara has revealed a trick which is not magic but an optical illusion.
Right Pointing Arrow: spin this arrow 180 degrees and it still points to the right- only in a mirror will it point left (and only to the left). Another incredible ambiguous object illusion by mathematician Kokichi Sugihara of Meiji University in Japan, the inventor of this illusion and art form. A clever combination of reflection, perspective, and viewing angle produce this striking illusion. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for info about where to get this illusion arrow and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #illusion #ambiguouscylinderillusion #ambiguouscylinder #geometry #mirrorreflection #physics #ambiguousobject #kokichisugihara #physicstoy #math #mathtoy #mathstoy #optics #opticalillusion #3dprinting #perspective #science #scienceisawesome
Sugihara uses his skills to design different 3D objects which can change their appearance based on which angle you are looking at them. If you look from above, the arrow is perfectly symmetrical but not uniform in shape. If you look at it from a different angle, one side appears to be more pointy than the other. When the brain tries to process what it is seeing, it looks at the pointy end only.
