Morphovision – you don’t believe your eyes

More goodies from Siggraph 2006. Morphovision is a project by Toshio Iwai. The combination of a spinning model of a house and some special lights give an illusion that is a strange experience. Something that looks like a true 3D projected image in front of your eyes. And, well – it is. Because the spinning model is a true model. A house made of wood and plastic. Problem is that the light fools your eyes into seeing strange things happening to the house… You have to see it yourself with your own eyes to really get the strange image.

However, for the people that wasn’t able to visit Siggraph this year I have made this little video to give an impression.
