At first glance, this tower looks like a normal (if rather fancy) piece of architecture. But when you take a second look, you realize there’s something odd about the way those pillars and that waterfall are arranged. Is that zigzag channel going uphill or downhill? And how DOES that waterfall work, anyway?
The longer you stare at the image, the more puzzling it becomes!
M.C. Escher (1898-1972) was the master of delightfully disorienting optical illusions like this one. Some of his other famous etchings include the elegant picture of birds slowly turning into fish, and the bizarre image of two hands drawing each other.
All Escher’s pictures bring you back for a second look, because there’s more to them than meets the eye.
Sometimes that’s true for promotional products, too!
For instance, this brightly-colored kitchen tool is more than a spatula – look closer, and you’ll discover it’s a four-in-one combo of a spoon, slotted spoon, serrated edge and turner. Grilling and cookouts just got 4x easier.
And this digital slide show/picture viewer isn’t just a great way to display your memories – a second look reveals a handy clock, calendar and digital thermometer function hidden in the frame.
And while these tasty-looking dark chocolates can easily stand on their own as delectable delicacies, a bite or two will show you their hidden secret: Each chocolate is specially crafted to pair with a particular flavor of wine (port, cabernet, pinot noir, merlot, syrah and zinfandel).
