That's excellent. Anyone have any ideas how to make this. It doesn't look difficult.

That video appears to originally come from the Dragon Optical Illusion page. There's a link to it on that page.

The plans to make the dragon are also there.

Check out the Hollow Face Illusion page from the same site. There's a link to a video of that illusion on that page. This is similar to the dragon illusion.

Jerry Andrus created a similar illusion called Parabox. A template for that is in the September 2004 Genii magazine.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

This same optical illusion is used throughout the Forum Casino area in Caesar's Palace, here in Las Vegas.

The same illusion is used in Disney's Haunted Mansion ride when you walk past the statue busts on a mantlepiece. The statue heads seem to turn and be glaring directly at you no matter where you view them from.

Click this link to go to a Haunted Mansion fan website to see schematics and info on how this "hollow face" illusion is constructed. Scroll down to where it says "Spotlight: The Watchful Busts":

We have one of Einstein sitting on a window ledge at home. My brother found it at a museum somewhere. It's the hollow face but it semi-transparent, the shadows from being lit from behind add to the effect.
