Over the years our family has developed a mini-tradition of creating short videos to celebrate the new year. These videos are short, always typographical, and usually incorporate some kind of a visual illusion. Our craft has improved over the years, something that can be seen in the overall quality of the videos (link to past videos below). And all this within a budget that has rarely exceeded $10.
View our 10th video, titled Sliding into 2018 created with a budget of $1.98!!
The previous 10 new year’s videos can be found here: Illusory New Year Videos.
How does this work and how did we do it?
- Phil Plait (@BadAstronomer) has a lovely explanation for why this illusion works titled: An Optical Illusion You’ll Swear Is Moving. It Isn’t.
- A couple of YouTube videos that were invaluable in getting us to do this can be found here and here.
