The Ambiguous Cylinder Illusion has become a viral sensation in recent days and now 3D printing has solved the riddle that has bewitched the Reddit community and the world at large.

The illusion was concocted by Japanese engineer and artist Kokichi Sugihara, who released a video of plastic rectangles that turn into circles when they are reflected in a mirror.

The fact that the illusion worked in reverse was even more mind-boggling stuff and it’s no surprise that it made the finals of the 2016 Best Illusion of the Year competition.
