…It’s Things Thursday: Meninos Lamp Shades?

Meninos Lamp Shade

Give your pad some geeked-out style with square Lamp Shades from Meninos.

Options include an F1/F2 shade, a metro map shade, optical illusion shades, a pig shade, an RSS shade, and even a CMYK shade.

Plus, they’re simple and chic so you don’t need to worry about where you put them or how to show them off. Just hang them from the ceiling and be done with it.

…Hidden circles trick your eyes?

Here’s a fun way to fool your eyes: In the picture below, how many circles do you see?

The correct answer is 16.

If you still can see them, stare at the “X” in the middle of the image until your eyes begin to lose focus, and the circles should appear.

…It’s Movie Monday: Chris Angel Go-Kart Vanish?

Magicians are the smoke and mirror masters of deception. Typically, there are two types of magicians: the ones that perform at birthday parties and bar mitzvahs, and the ones that perform in Vegas and on TV. Chris Angel is definitely one of the latter, and has made quite a successful career out of fooling people into believing. One downside to a television career though, is that TV can be slowed down and analyzed (thanks TIVO). A perfect example of this is Angel’s go-cart vanishing trick:

Looks good right?

But what about when you slow it down? Unfortunately for Chris, the frame by frame reveals his ‘secret’, which is just an optical illusion that allows him to drive behind instead of into a wall. Tricky, huh?
