Second Generation Impossible Objects
"Impossible Motion Objects" That Generate Impossible Motions
Objects appear to be ordinary, but we can insert motions that appear to be impossible. Examples include "antigravity slopes" along
which balls roll uphill, and "distorted windows" through which a straight rod penetrate in an inconsistent manner.
We call those phenomena "impossible motions" and objects that generate impossible motions "impossible motion objects".
The four slopes appear to be extended from the highest center toward the four directions. however, if we place balls on the slopes,
they appear to roll uphill toward the center plate.
These motions can be seen in the
This impossible motion illusion won the first prize at the
Sexth Best Illusion of the Year Contest
held in Florida in 2010.
Various impossible motions can be seen in the videos:
