This little app is by far one of the coolest things we?ve seen done for the iPhone, but aside from drawing those jaw-dropping reactions from your friends, it pretty much belongs to the not-so-productive bunch of the group. Created by David OReilly, the illusion is created using a technique called anomorphosis which basically fools you into seeing 3D objects instead of 2D drawings. A constant 35-45 degree viewing angle is key for this to work and when paired with the iPhone?s accelerometer, it does just that by adjusting the image accordingly whenever you tilt or move the device.
Too bad it isn?t available yet in both the App Store and Cydia/Installer.app as this looks destined to be a hit. It?s simply amazing what a little imagination and some technical expertise can do when you put the iPhone into the picture.
