Ames Window Illusion

This weirdly shaped window plays a trick on your eyes as it spins around. It seems to spin in one direction, stop, and then start spinning in the other direction... But if we watch it from above, we can see that it's spinning in just the one direction! What?!

Print out the template below, then watch my video to see how you can make the Ames Window at home.

Watch to the end of the video to learn more about the science behind how this works!
