These Ordinary Objects Aren’t Really What They Appear To Be – And It’s Absolutely Mind-Blowing!

Check out this 3 cool anamorphic illusions by YouTube channel brusspup.

A A A

What can a Rubik’s cube, a roll of tape, and a sneaker possibly have in common? Well, for one, they are all featured in the video below – and each one of them has been transformed into anamorphic art by YouTube channel Brusspup.

It’s really amazing to look at and your mind will surely be blown away once you see how it works.

Before we dive on the awesome video below though, let’s first have a brief explanation.

Anamorphic is taken from the word “anamorphosis” which Wikipedia defines as:

A distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices or occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. The word “anamorphosis” is derived from the Greek prefix ana‑, meaning back or again, and the word morphe, meaning shape or form.

To be honest, this video helped me understand how those interactive 3D-style museum displays work. I’ve never seen one upclose but this definitely gave me an idea.

Pretty cool, right? Well, what’s cooler here is that you can even do the trick yourself. Besides, printable copies are available for the cube, tape, and shoe. Be sure to print it out using A4 paper (8.5 X 14 inches). Let us know if you tried it out!

Browsing around their channel, I found out Brusspup is really popular in YouTube with almost 2 million subscribers. The video “Amazing Anamorphic Illussions!” isn’t even a new video but it continues to draw a lot of views. It was originally published way back November 27, 2012 but it seems viewers just couldn’t get enough of it. In fact, it has received close to 27,000,000 views as of this writing.

Brilliant Comic Shows Why it’s Difficult to Fight Anxiety and Depression

These are not just some fleeting emotions; these are psychological disorders.

It’s common to hear people say that they’re depressed although they’re not; they're just sad. People use "sad" and depressed" interchangeably to describe how they feel. But, the fact is, it's wrong to regard them as one and the same. Sadness is a common emotion that can be easily resolved with the help of some environmental factors and positive thinking while depression requires treatment.

Depression is a psychological disorder with symptoms that can last for at least two weeks. They experience hopeless, guilt, anhedonia (inability to experience pleasure), and of course, sadness. And even if they want to, they can’t just "snap out of it".

Depression also commonly occurs with anxiety. To make matters worse, they feel irritable or nervous, and they have trouble concentrating and sleeping.

Fascinating Video Shows Painstaking Process of Creating Handmade Globes

With painstaking attention to detail, this company produces handcrafted globes that are as beautiful as they are educational.

Remember how fascinated we were with globes as a youngster? I myself have fond memories to share. I can recall I used to sit around with my friends as we look at the globe displayed in our classroom. We’d test our young minds’ knowledge, trying to locate countries for fun.

Fast forward to the future though, globes are no longer as interesting as they used to be. Many adults see them simply as classroom or office objects that are added to make a table look less dull. Globes, especially the store-bought ones, have become boring.

Well, Peter Bellerby of Bellerby & Co. begs to differ. If you will look at the globes they produce, you’ll probably agree with them that globes are actually far from boring.
