Many of you might be excited for the upcoming Indian 3D sci-fi thriller "Mr X", directed by Vikram Bhatt which is set to launch this Friday.  The movie is based upon how our protagonist Emraan Hashmi , a fearless cop who becomes invisible through a chemical reaction from a medicine and how he uses this sudden power of invisibility to take the law in his hands and punish the wrong doers. This movie is released both in 2D and 3D. But watching it in 3D is promising as the movie has a lot of visual effects .

After learning to be invisible in the movie, Emraan along with Amyra now wants to learn all about making Mr. X poster invisible using optical illusion. Yes, Emraan Hashmi and Amyra Dastur visited the "Mad Stuff with Rob" as part of their movie promotion.

Rob did not disappoint the actors visiting his studio. He made sure that they did have fun with paper and scissors. From cutting to pasting, the journey of the creative poster takes shape.

Work on progress: Creating Mr. X Optical Illusion Poster 
Of course, the viewers had the treat of watching the silver screen actors doing DIY stuff which encourages the kids to bring invisibility onto the paper. Below is the video on how Mr.X transforms from being visible to invisible.

How to Create Mr.X Optical Illusion Poster



Rob teaches you an X-cellent optical illusion that you can try out at home using some very basic materials and the result is just fantastic.

Materials required
  • Two posters (same size but slight different images)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
children activities

[Note: My printer ink was low in blue and hence it fired up the images with dashes of orange hues.]

Step 1- Download , print and cut the outline of the two Mr.X images. You can download the images  for Mr.X Visible and Mr.X Invisible by clicking on the respective links. The latter image was made to look invisible using Picasa.

Step 2- Cut the two images into equal strips. As it was a quick DIY craft to try Mr.X optical illusion poster at home, I just fan folded  the poster into equal strips and used scissors to cut out instead of measuring or naming the strips as 1,2,3 and A,B,C.

Step 3- Paste the strips alternatively one by one on a sheet of paper.

Step 4- Now,fold it into a fan shape wherein one side of the image makes Mr.X Emraan face to appear and the other part he is magically invisible.

The final image was an X-cellent optical illusion picture. (see below image)

Children and of course interested adults can now create their own Mr.X Optical Illusion Poster in their home. For more such interesting and fun-filled DIY crafts from Rob, you can subscribe to his channel "Mad Stuff with Rob" on YouTube.
