Upside Down

January 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here is another fun&interesting optical illusion that makes me impressed when I first saw it.

Let’s see whether this optical illusion also works and impresses you or not. 🙂

Photograph above is the original one. In this article, we will have a lot of talk about the photo above because we are going to use it as an object of the optical illusion.

Are you Ready for the illusion?

First, I will rotate the photograph to create an upside-down image. You can see the rotated image under this. Next, follow step by step all the instruction that was written in the picture below:


How is it? Did you notice the oddity before you rotate it 180 degree?

This kinda illusion was called as the Thatcher Illusion (named after the former Prime Minister of England whose face is depicted). This Thatcher Illusion or Thatcher Effect tell us that it is much easier to recognize or notice such oddity when the face is upright than when the face is upside down.

Having some difficulty to rotate the photograph above? Here I will rotate it for you, but in a smaller size:

Joke from this Illusion; If you think that you have an ugly face, you may learn how to always walk with your hands (not with legs anymore), so that people who met you will not notice your ugliness because people are hardly to recognize the oddity from an upside-down face. 🙂

      But whether the eyebrows are on the wrong place or not, the picture still seems to be ‘attractive’ when it was upside down, right? Hahahaha
      And when the picture had been rotated 180 degree back to normal, it is ‘disaster’… =D
