Illusion of the Year 2010 by Koukichi Sugihara

It’s easy to see why this practical solid object illusion won – No fancy computer graphics. Just cardboard, glue, and some wooden balls:

The illusion shown is all the more remarkable in that it is a solid object whereas most entries were computer-generated.

See the top ten finalists from the competition, and marvel at what your brain will make you see. Which one do you like best?

This cardboard sculpture by Koukichi Sugihara of the Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences in Japan won the first prize at the 2010 Illusion of the Year competition.
