The best optical illusion of 2010 - the magnet ramp where balls roll uphill

is no magnet, only a visual deception.

Kokichi Sugihara, a mathematician at Meiji Institute in Kawasaki, Japan, created an illusion that was voted the best of 2010 by the Vision Sciences Society.

    1. It is an awesome illusion though. I cannot help but be a hater, they receive an award, Yet, I successfully make them operate with magnetic fields and gravity, and I get mocked.
