Visual Illusion - balls rolling uphill

 In response to a challenge on the Thingiverse Blog blog.thingiverse.com/2012/02/21/oo-someone-make-one-of-these/ I offer this attempt to design a part which will give the visual illusion of balls rolling uphill.



When viewed from the correct angle, this piece should give the illusion that all 4 ramps slope up to the middle platform. Viewing from any other angle gives the game away!  ( I haven't printed one yet, but I couldn't resist the challenge!)
