May I ask what is the name of this illusion? I came across this illusion previously but have forgotten its name.
Thanks in advance!

Blair,

Harary first caled this the "Janet Box" That was an early name for it, along with the "Caterpillar Illusion".
It is known now as the Slicer illusion.
David Mendoza build the one seen on the video.
EDF also builds them.

Tristan is right. Franz Harary called it the "Janet Box" because he design it when he was consultant for the Janet Jackson Tour in the 90th.

It was called the Janet Box because the first one built had a picture of his then roommate Janet Henry on the front. So they simply called it The Janet Box.

Franz also mentioned he finds it really odd that the magic community refers to it as The Janet Box being they didn’t know his roommate! LOL

Just a fun fact.

F.Y.I. I e-mailed Franz (his e-mail address is/was on his website) and asked him about it. He said that it was named after a friend named Janet.

However, I rmemeber a Magic Magazine article where he is interviewed and he and Janet Jackson ducked some reporters hiding in one of his illusions. He said they talked about their dreams and goals. Uh, if I was suck in a confined space with Janet.....
