Check out this video that I made on the T-Rex. It is one of the most interesting thing that I have seen. Thanks to our human brain, we are able to visualize the T-Rex looking at you within the front scope of the camera.
Call it sorcery or magic, you will not be able to digest it even though I show you the proof.. So, check out this video. Remember to watch it till the end for a shock!
BTW, I don’t own the design. It is done by the talented Brusspup. Actually, this is not new but the design has been enhanced.Here is the information from the YouTube video.
This is based on the famous dragon illusion which was inspired by Jerry Andrus. I’ve always wanted to try this illusion with several of these at once. I wanted to use 20 or 30 but after I tried a test with only 12, I realized 20 or 30 was going to be too many. So another thing I’ve always wanted to try was to have a large version. The original file was about 9 feet X 9 feet. I had to split the image into 4 files so the printer as my local print shop could print it. I traced all of the pieces on cardboard which I used to build a support structure for the prints. I used small pieces of cardboard and hot glue to make the structure really solid. One problem that I had was that the paper for the large dragon was really shiny. So if you look closely you can see the reflection of the eyes on the “top” and side panels. I bought some matte spray to try and minimize the reflections. It worked a little. Over all I was happy with the results.
The t-rex design is an original design used with the Gathering for Garder 3D dragon template. The original 3D template design (dragon) was inspired by the work of Jerry Andrus to celebrate Gathering for Gardner 3. http://www.thinkfun.com
I took some time to digest the video to fold the head properly. Once done, you will NOT see the magic immediately. The magic occurs when you use your camera or smartphone to film it.
