A great website filled with optical illusions to bend your mind.

Particularly fond of the above, a carpet that looks like it's bending downwards in the ground.

I?ll admit it, this Sima Pashtun rug illusion, created by Mauricio Lara and Sebasti?n Lara, took me a little while to see. At first I thought it was just supposed to look like it was melting or stretched out, but once I saw the crazy extra dimension it adds to the floor, I couldn?t unsee the illusion.
