    Not forgetting to mention that the angle of the paper adds to the effect.

    why does the video cut when he is moving from one table top to the other? It`s slight, but noticable.

    That was a cool optical illusion. The guy who made this video thought it was good enough to post on the internet and it`s really not. That`s amazing!!!

    Fail. If you watch the fade in the video from 0:43 to 0:45, you`ll see that the tables are, in fact, different sizes.

    Pretty obvious and not very exciting. In a 2D world, they are the same size, but in a true-3D world, one table would be much bigger.

    Hey tiredofchicks, that guys right, it`s definitely edited, i watche the whole thing and it doesn`t matter..i`ve seen illusions LIKE that before and they`re tough to see that the two images are the same size, but this is definitely edited because they are not the same.

    why don`t you guys just printscreen, open it in photoshop, and see for yourself? they`re not quite exact, but they`re actually very close.

    You know.. it takes 5 whole seconds to move your finger up to the screen or a piece of paper and see if they`re remotely the same size.
