Tonight when I finished work, Anthony and Piper were sitting with Elizabeth looking at dragon pictures on her laptop. After Elizabeth left for the evening, Anthony asked, “can we look at more dragons? So we played some pretend-animal games imagea discovered on Tolweb. But then in hunting for “dragon videos” we stumbled on this cool clip about a Dragon optical illusion.

Look at the pictures carefully. Why does the dragon turn towards you when Anthony turns the base of the model away from you?


The great thing about this impossible object is that you can actually make it yourself by printing out a paper cutout. The illusion dragon is labeled as an object for “Gathering for Gardner 3, “.

Martin Gardner, if you’re not familiar, is the recreational mathematician and writer of Scientific American fame; he is probably the greatest popularizer of math and puzzles ever. He was con responsible for the Conway’s Game of Life craze and also sparked my interest in Penrose tiles and other cool topics.

Gardner was a big illusiobs of optical illusions and Things you Can Make Yourself, so this sort of object was right up his alley.

I was too young to enjoy most of Gardner’s original Scientific American columns, but I read them all later in his books now you can get them the whole compilation on CD-ROM.

Unusual, hard to find toys – magnets, optical illusions and much more…!

And you can read more about Gathering for Gardner here. Seems the events are still being held – by invitation only! Anyway, the dragon illusion was well worth it, simple to make, and popular with the kids.

The illusion will jump straight out at you!
