Got something to do with AREA's, the front one's are never moved , it's all done with the back one's . . . an old sheetie (Sheetmetal worker) could do the same with triangles,  had us all bamboozled . . .

The solutions are also on Youtube.


Azulejos actually has a cheat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbpfjM0NP7Q
But the triangles one mentioned is an optical illusion called the missing square puzzle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExUV3GOTDqE

Tiger,

Thank you.

Yes I see the "trick" with the sloping edges, however the pieces are not turned over, unless, I missed it on the original.

The front is marked in tiles, the back is plain?????

The flip of the trick piece is edited out. If you watch the the vid on youtube it is noted in the comments.
Edits can be noted at 0.35 and 2.20.
Additionally, if you look closely you can see that the in the middle section, where two halves would join, things don't quite line up. In fact some of the squares are also elongated.


But you can see it in a little slight of hand here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHlNToe2LUg
Notice that once the parts are tipped out of the box, the two halves of the puzzle are not put together until the end. Avoiding the problem of things not lining up.

You missed noting that you were not meant to see. What a wheeze of a puzzle!

Yes, and I think I will make some. That is why I was looking so closely into this.

Tiger,

Yes, got it now, very well done.

As they say, no such thing as magic, just slight of hand or illusion. :-))  :-))
