Flying Through Space Optical Illusion
Flying Through Space is a simple yet pretty neat illusion. This man appears to be flying across the screen, but in fact he is barley moving, the animation is made up of only four frames, two normal and two inverted. One of the inverted frames and one of the normal ones the man is shift up and over a nudge. When all four frames are flashed in a row it appears he is for ever moving forward in a continuous motion, when in fact hes slipping back and forth only a few pixels, this is masked by the image being inverted. Also be sure to check out the Dinosaur and Beach animated illusions.This is another great addition to the Animation Illusions.
It’s Christopher Walken, by the way.
