Brusspup’s T-Rex Optical Illusion

Video 17 February 2014 0 Comments

This video version of the famous dragon illusion from Brusspup is based on an original idea by the late magician Jerry Andrus.  Brusspup’s original idea was to test out the illusion with many dragons all at once.  While he hoped to use 20 to 30 simultaneously, he ultimately settled on using just 8.  Watching multiple dragons keep their eyes focused on you as the camera moves from side to side is impressive.  Brusspup was also able to create an extremely large version in his living room which ends up producing a slightly creepy effect.

At the end of the video, the trick behind the illusion is revealed when the camera moves to an extreme angle.  For a similar effect, be sure to check out both the Magic Floating Cube and Crazy Nuts Illusion.

If you have any interest in making your own T-Rex illusion at home and trying it out for yourself, feel free to download one of these three templates:

The illusion is strongest if you view it through a camera, so keep that in mind once you assemble yours and begin testing it out.
