Rotating Cup And Saucer Create Optical Illusion Of Bird In Flight

It is always interesting when it comes to figuring out a mystery. In this video, a rotating cup and saucer create an optical illusion of a bird in flight.

At the start of the clip, we see a beautiful white saucer with thin black lines on one side. The man picks up the saucer so we can get a closer look. Next, he picks up the tea cup that is white with golden vertical lines. PhysicsFun is about to blow our minds with a dainty household item. The man recording the video wows us with his well thought out plan. He shares that this physics method is called Locomotion Anamorphic Cup & Saucer.  PhysicsFun says, this is “an amazing combination of barrier grid animation and anamorphic projection rendered on elegant porcelain.”

In other words, the man moves the tea cup on the saucer as the image of a bird appears from the lines on the saucer projecting onto the tea cup. It appears to the viewer that the tea cup has the picture of a bird on the side. Whenever the man turns the cup back and forth, the bird appears to fly. Whenever he stops, the bird stays in position. 

This is above and beyond what many people would think to create. It amazes us to see some of the creations that men and women come up with in their time. This video points us to be in awe of the Creator, who formed us and the entire world. Just as we are in awe of this optical illusion, may we always be in awe of the greatness of the Lord.

“By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.”  Hebrews 11:3
