Dual Axis Illusion

Ambiguous, Video 4 February 2021 0 Comments

The Dual Axis Illusion appears to defy logic. It was created by Frank Force and beat out many great optical illusions to claim first place at the 2019 Best Illusion of the Year Contest.

The spinning shape seems to rotate around both a horizontal and vertical axis simultaneously. To add to the confusion, the direction of the rotation is also ambiguous. The video walks through a few different tricks to change your opinion as the shape continues to rotate and rotate.


Frank has worked in the games industry for more than twenty years. He has also released over 50 games with the source code available. He has worked with many developers including Rooster Teeth Games, Certain Affinity, LightBox, Volition, Midway Games, and Hypnotix. More information about Frank can be found on his website – Killed By a Pixel.
