    How do they do this? Lasers? I don`t get it.

    "In the 3rd one, why did they do so much work? why not just paint squares on the windows? it would be so much easier but look the same."

    It wouldn`t, because the fact that it changes when you move is part of the illusion and awesomeness.

    2nd one has to be fake.

    The objects on the desk change
    In the first picture there is a door with a keypad, the seocnd one there is a poster on the door and you cant see the keypad (may be below desk)

    and the monitor isnt there.

    These are quite well done, bit it`s not as complicated as you might think. All you need to do is project the image of the graphic, and paint over the projected image. You do need to change the focal distance of the projector as you move farther from the projector to keep the image in focus.

    Squab27, if you look closer to the first picture you`ll notice that the image doesn`t actually touch the wall wit the monitor (it touches the monitor though), but a wall behind that.
    Follow the pole in the roof if you can`t see the difference between the walls :p
    ...and yeah the papers seem to change, but that doesn`t mean it`s fake

    Very cool and not at all fake...Look at #4 It might look like its wrong but the paint is on the window sill not the window..at the right angle you can`t even see the window just sill. I really like these.

    Terrible you do not know what a window or door jamb is and the depth of its potential. These images are real but you lack knowledge in architecture and you have obviously not studied design and perception. I am left to reduce your IAB opinion down on my scale. Still I think you would be a highly coveted Eskimo ;-)

    its like working in a tall building (50+floors) at first its like, "wow, this is cool, beautiful view" but over time its like, "ugh...20 second ride to the top, and thats assuming nobody is going to stop and get on..."

    Downsides:
    -It NEVER really looks like it does in the pictures.

    -As many people said; it`s actually distracting when it`s in your working place.

    I think these are fake, i would totally have to see them to believe them...i think thats what makes them such a good illusion.

    no, they`re definately real, and the tv is off camera to the left. I`ve seen the target in person.

    I love them.

    If I were a boss, I`d have the work place painted the same place too.

    With a sort of "depths of hell" motif to it. Maybe an illusion involving demons and satan?
