This image is of a "wireframe" model of a 3D mirrored ball. Could it fool someone as a UFO?
(Click title to view video clip)
It appears to have been produced in a modeling program like Maya or 3D Studio. But when the model is placed into a video clip, the model reflects the video background...environment mapping it is called.
This video should serve to remind us all that a little trickery can be very convincing indeed.
