Matt Pritchard “The Real Thing??”.

Author description: The video shows a series of illusions of perceiving a reflection of a coke can in a mirror. However, the viewer is just looking through an empty frame at a second can. The question is ‘what is the real thing?’ Even when deceptive elements designed to convince the viewer are stripped away, the illusion of seeing a mirror persists when the scene is viewed for a brief moment. Careful examination will reveal discrepancies in the scene but what causes the vision system to make the initial mirror assumption is not yet fully understood.
