Video Script:: 

hello everyone no matter how much we resist our brains often deceive us fortunately it's not because of a flaw in your system but because of something called binocular vision when we look at an object we sometimes see something completely different optical illusions work thanks to our unconscious assumptions stereotypes and of course the skill of their authors in this video we've tried to collect the most surprising and interesting illusions that will deceive even the smartest people let's get it on [Music] checkerboard floor the ingenuity of some people helps companies make much more money one of the best ways to promote your product is using it in your own office right this is exactly the kind of advertising that duncan cook owner of the british company casa ceramica in manchester decided to use on his twitter account he posted a video of himself walking down the corridor of his company's building and trying to dodge a small gap in the floor the post caused a heated debate and many internet users wanted to know what exactly was happening duncan decided to answer all of the questions in another video imagine the surprise of the public when they discovered that the floor was actually flat that they were actually seeing an optical illusion created with black and white tiles painted in a special way if you look at the corridor from a different angle you'll understand how it all works in one place the floor is painted white like an extension of the wall which makes it seem as if a gap is formed in that place dancing on distorted carpets optical illusions can be found inside any home for example a fancy pattern on the parquet or an unusual color combination but the european brand eager decided to reimagine carpets and their ability to create a unique style the designers presented a collection of carpets with an optical illusion some appear to be made of natural grass while others give the impression of walking on waves or sand dunes hotels arc curators and museums including the copenhagen contemporary collaborate with eager especially for a dance event the company produced a carpet with a distorted mesh pattern it's meant to represent the root system of a forest for greater effect the dallases dressed in black and danced bizarrely on the floor it looked like they were walking on a bumpy floor with holes in we don't know what you think but we couldn't believe that it was a real rug people in the audience probably felt pretty dizzy seeing these dances big office letters few architects managed to create a unique office space with a large capacity and at the same time great comfort in addition business owners are often challenged to create recognizable space in an ordinary location for example artist barbara benkova created a new space for the creative agency b-squared architecture in prague using one of the most impressive types of optical illusions anamorphosis if you find that uneven flaws and strange patterns are no longer interesting you will love this illusion you've probably never seen anything like this anamorphosis has a special type of distorted projection which can only be seen if you look at it from a certain angle when you enter the office of b-squared architecture you can see the huge company logo painted in light tones with the black hall in the background it's not difficult to spot the huge letter b but after taking a couple of steps you can understand that the illusion is possible thanks to the perspective and the company's logo is actually the colours of the workspace weird pool one of the most popular installations based on an optical illusion is this unusual pool located at the 21st century museum of contemporary art in kanazawa japan the pool seems to be filled to the brim with water when you look at it from above it seems like the visitors are walking underwater and for unknown reasons they can hold their breath for a really long time they move quietly around the bottom without taking off their jackets or shoes the author of this work of art the argentinian artist leandro ehrlich defies literally all of the laws of physics how is this possible you might ask well it's much simpler than you might think just 10 centimeters below the surface of the pool there is a completely transparent bit of glass covered with water under the glass there's an empty space with blue walls that makes the water look crystal clear the staircase adds a touch of realism interestingly the empty pool has existed since 2004 but the idea still looks brilliant everyone will love this attraction especially those who are afraid of water here you can easily overcome your fear at least for a few minutes book cave another successful way to attract as many customers as possible was invented by the owners of the zhongsuga bookstore located in guiyang in china when you cross the threshold you enter a parallel universe a huge cave with endless tunnels the architects were clearly inspired by cast caves and their breathtaking views you might think that this is just an ordinary bookstore but it's much more interesting first of all the black glass floor creates an optical illusion and visitors feel as if they're floating above the books secondly the shelves that reflect on the floor take the form of stalactites that stretch out endlessly after passing through this endless cave we enter the reading room in the form of a square study here you can not only choose a new book but also relax with a cup of tea surrounded by years of wisdom in this place some people feel like a character from harry potter or an astronaut in a spaceship as you see perfectly selected colours in a geometric interior are the best advertisement for any shop spider-man's house when you were a kid you probably read pop-up books with characters that came to life before your eyes it's easier for a child to enjoy a story with three-dimensional figures that you can touch with your own hands leandro ehrlich author of the empty pool was inspired by books from his childhood but let's start from the beginning let's say you go home from work and see someone hanging from a building holding onto the window with all of their strength what would you do we'd probably call the rescue services but this is actually an art installation by leandro anyone in east london can climb like spider-man or fly with an umbrella like mary poppins the reason is that the facade of this three-story building is actually its reflection in a 45-degree mirror the size of the mirror is 7 by 10 meters can you believe it but a mirror of this gigantic size would be way too heavy so it was replaced by aluminium foil stretched on a lightweight aluminium frame thanks to the unusual installation visitors can boldly defy the laws of gravity by walking on a brick wall or holding onto the window with one hand big little sculpture we must not forget that our ancestors already knew about optical illusions for example architects of ancient greece erected the famous parthenon on the acropolis with columns of different widths something that is impossible to notice with the naked eye and the romans used 3d mosaics to decorate their homes giving volume to the surface of buildings the italian architect francesco boromini author of the galleria spada in rome was also interested in optical illusions in 1653 he came up with a way to build an arched courtyard that would make any person look much taller in front of the entrance the first thing you'll see is a giant statue of mars it looks like the passage reaches at least 25 meters but as soon as you take your first steps you understand how it works you only have to walk eight meters to get to the statue this optical illusion was used by boromini at the request of cardinal berndino spada who wanted a spacious garden the architect had to make a great effort to deal with a lack of space several decisive factors helped him to achieve this result the raised floor the reduced columns at the end of the passage the low ceiling and the specially placed walls as a result when you approach the statue of mars you discover that its height is only 60 centimeters you can imagine how majestic and big its owner felt when he entered this place childhood dream you probably dreamt in your childhood of having a tree house to watch over everyone without being noticed the owners of tree hotel have made the dream of many people to leave their apartments and hide in a secret place come true the swedish forests are perfect for a peaceful holiday and everyone should enjoy this natural wonder imagine a comfortable room in a tree which smells like a forest without neighbors and surrounded by silence sounds perfect besides in this place you won't attract the attention of others you may think that it's impossible but as you see on the outside the house is covered with mirror panels that reflect the trees and the blue sky when you go up to the roof of the house you find a terrace and thanks to the optical illusion it can seem as if you're floating in the air inside there's a spacious bed a bathroom and a real tree trunk inside the small windows only contribute to the comfort and the infrared film that covers the house on all sides prevents the birds from bumping into the house to enjoy a vacation at tree hotel you'll have to pay between 400 and 600 dollars a day but it's clearly worth it 2d cafe south korea is famous for its shopping malls shops cafes and galleries and seoul has long attracted tourists from all over the world creating real shows in its establishments dining at the cafe dong 22314 is a must for all tourists visiting the capital in this unusual place the first thing that strikes you is the lack of color all the walls are black and white blending in with the tables chandeliers and even the cutlery and only at this point do you realize that you're in a 2d cafe but do you have to sit on paper chairs fortunately it's just an illusion if it doesn't make you feel dizzy then let's look around it turns out that the designers have painted all the furniture black and white including the walls mirrors and even the windows the two-dimensional cafe is inspired by a tv show in which the main character is caught between real life and a cartoon sounds scary but having a 2d coffee is rather an unusual experience tricky bus stop remember how long we have to wait for the bus every day this ordinary place looks like thousands of bus stops around the world where strangers sit and think about their problems while they wait for the bus but in reality this is an unusual bus stop because in this place you can be attacked by a tiger or a sea monster with giant tentacles can come out of the manhole but you shouldn't be afraid because it is just an illusion as part of an advertising campaign pepsi max transformed the windows of this bus stop with augmented reality technology the pepsi experts recorded shocking images in advance with added visual effects for example a huge robot walking through the city and destroying everything and then broadcast the scenes on a huge screen on the wall of the bus stop in the end none of the people present complained although they were all really scared hey stop being lazy it's time to use that brain of yours welcome to brain time incredible facts from the past the present and even
