Amazing iPad Optical Illusions Bring Images to Life

We have seen examples of art applied to the iPad before: remember the iPad light paintings ? I’m not afraid to call that “art”: with the technology of today and the creativity of real artists, it is possible to come up with modern implementations of old art forms.

Today’s video shows what it’s possible to do with static images on an iPad and a transparent overlay sheet. The result is mind-blowing, especially the last animation. Check out the video below, then share. It’s incredible.
