How do you make a plastic bottle sit on top of a Rubik's Cube without a Rubik's Cube?
It may seem like a brain teaser, but it's more like something you would see in an Escher drawing. An optical illusion. A three-dimensional world trapped in a two-dimensional image, which is exactly what's going on in this Rubik's Cube illusion.
All you need to do is take a picture of the Rubik's Cube (or other similar 3D-centric subject) and something beside it for reference, as brusspup does in the video below. Then print it out, put it down on a table, and slap something on top of it for final illusion.
For an even crazier take on this, check out brusspup's other video below, which is a great anamorphic Rubik's Cube illusion. A little Photoshop experience may be required for this one (or you can just print out his version).
If you try this out yourself, post your results below!
