Secret of the Ames Room (8 pics + 1 video)

You think it was photoshopped, not true or whatever! Well no, it’s only a matter of perspective :)

An Ames room is constructed so that from the front it appears to be an ordinary cubic-shaped room.
But this is a trick of perspective and the true shape of the room is trapezoidal: the walls are slanted and the ceiling and floor are at an incline, and the right corner is much closer to the front-positioned observer than the left corner (or vice versa).
As a result of the optical illusion, a person standing in one corner appears to the observer to be a giant, while a person standing in the other corner appears to be a dwarf. The illusion is convincing enough that a person walking back and forth from the left corner to the right corner appears to grow or shrink.
