User Brusspup posts this video in which he includes his amazing 2-D images that fool the eye by appearing tridimensional, when watched at the right angle.

His clip, added two days ago, popped on YouTube charts with a whopping 2.7 million hits.

In case you're wondering, the word “anamorphic” describes a distorted projection of an image. According to Wikipedia, whoever wants to reconstruct the image must stand in a certain point or use a specific device to do so.

A shoe, a roll of tape, and a Rubik’s cube transform in front of your eyes. At the beginning of the clip, you can see the real thing, after which everything you lay your eyes on are printed images.

Although their creator prefers the tennis shoe illusion, I was completely fooled by the Rubik cube. If you like the clip, list which one is your favorite in the comment section below.
