Just saw Tony’s vase on @Dan’s twitter feed and had to share it here.

That is cool! I might have to make one of those…


#3

witchcraft,

seems like a good excuses to put a mob together

cool optical illusion


#4

Oh my. That’s trippy. Can’t quite tell. Is the inside hollow?


#5

Really neat design and and function. Perfect use of laser to cut and stack and do 3D.


#6

the inside is a set of graduated rings. The full circles stop you from seeing it all at once resulting in the appearance of motion when perspective changes


#7

If the outer rings were clear acrylic, a light inside would look really cool. It looked like there was a light cord behind the lamp.:grin:


#8

Very cool. Definitely on my glowForge to do list now


#9

Ooo neat idea. Could have lots of fun with different colors of acrylic.


#10

Cc the real @Tony

I couldn’t help myself…

This is like the adult version of those stickers where the image changes depending on how you look at it. I don’t know what they’re called or how they work, but I loved them.

I feel like it would be a logistical nightmare, but I wonder if the awesome laser thing could be made so that something is revealed with the angle change - like a word. Or one word morphing into another.

I believe it’s just something like a lenticular lens that blocks the view at different angles.
