This is a replica of the Inception Penrose staircase. This was quite an interesting experience, as well as a lot of fun to build/make!

"The Penrose stairs or Penrose steps, also dubbed the impossible staircase, is an impossible object created by Lionel Penrose and his son Roger Penrose.  A variation on the Penrose triangle, it is a two-dimensional depiction of a staircase in which the stairs make four 90-degree turns as they ascend or descend yet form a continuous loop, so that a person could climb them forever and never get any higher. This is clearly impossible in three dimensions."

How do you like pics 3 and 6?

Ratings and feedback appreciated! Have fun 'ibling!

The illusion is best seen in the sixth pic in- or you can view it here: http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FXV/218R/GPBDI96R/FXV218RGPBDI96R.MEDIUM.jpg

Thanks for viewing! Hope you like it!

Coolness! :D What do you think?

I like your Paper Gyroscope, BTW!
It looks very cool!

And thanks about the paper gyro, I am making a new version in a few months, it will work way better than before
