Cylinder or Square ? Optical Illusion

Cylinder or Square – you decide

Put some square blocks in front of a mirror and you will be amazed at what is reflected back.

In real life, they appear to be groups of square shaped tubes. However, when placed in front of a mirror, they appear to be cylinders! The one on the left in this picture even appears to be a series of interlocking cylinders!

If you think this ambiguous cylinder illusion is just a clever Photoshop job, you would be wrong. It’s definitely very real, and there’s video evidence to support it! It was even a finalist for the Best Illusion of the Year Contest in 2016!

Check it out, and prepare to have your mind blown…
