Pretty cool, but I don't like the idea that the rooms looks like crap in all other viewing angles. I wouldn't be able to live there.

These looked kinda photoshopped to me if you zoom in.

I thought those looked neat, but I'm not sure it's real either.

Look at the line on the right hand side on the top picture. It seems to be painted on the inside of the wall. So in theory, if you move over to the right and look at it, you wouldn't be able to see that line because the wall itself would block it.

Neat idea though.

If you look the radiator, floor and back wall have the majority of the right outside verticle line. I think the line on the wall is only the outer most edge of the line. But I am not 100% these are real, only 1 or 2 looked good at other angles.

If you put any furniture in there, you ruin the effect (assuming it's real)

That sort of trick has been around since the 1500's at least. Dutch homeowners would have a room painted so that, if you looked in through a little window in the door, you saw a "scene" that was completely different from the actual room.

The problem with the trick is that you have to use only one eye for it to really be convincing.

I'm trying to find images of the old stuff online, but can't. While I scan some things out of my books, here is a nice link to modern illusionary paintings.

Actually, as you move to the right, you would be seeing the vertical line on the back wall. That becomes your new right frame. When that line lines up with the corner of the wall, the x snaps into shape. Theoretically.....

True - still seems a bit too "perfect" to me.

Shouldn't distance cause the lines to look smaller as they got farther away? It wouldn't if you widened the strips at an an exact ratio to distance, but it doesn't look like that was the case here.

It is easy to do if you outlined a projection of the X onto the wall.

ugh, really looks like crap when you're not looking at the exact right angle
