Optical Illusions Thread



Squares A and B are the same colour. I kid you not. If you don't believe me test it in photoshop.

Here's another one.

From this thread: Dancing Girl- What Do You See?

The responses in the thread are good.

I came across this today and thought it was interesting.

Do you see her dancing clockwise or counter-clockwise?

Re: Optical Illusions Thread

When I first saw the OP's illusion somewhere else, it had the ability to click on it and everything disappeared except for the 2 boxes, which made it even freakier.

yeah that would be cool. I was briefly monkeying around with it, sampling and drawing thick lines between the cubes until they appear the same then hitting ctrl-z and removing them. Doesn't change back right away, kind of weird

The first one posted is one of the most insane things I've seen in my life.

The strobe thing is pretty cool too. The first time I saw it I freaked out.

Re: Optical Illusions Thread

from the earlier linked site



how long before 2+2 forbids optical illusion avatars? Some of these would be delightful going off in the corner of your eye.

edit: assuming really small ones have the same annoying shifting effect

Re: Optical Illusions Thread



This one's made of concentric circles, not spirals.

It really makes me think about the fact that a lot of what I think I see is really just my brain filling in gaps because as I move my eyes around the image, it keeps changing. It's like the spiraling part is always in the corner of my eye and the part I'm looking at is circular.

****ing trippy.

Yes. "Breathing" "Swimming" "FLowing" effects on vision. (But there's lots more stuff too, some of which can be pretty stressful, so don't take this as an all-clear...)

Lots of versions of this type of concentric circles illusion, but this is my favourite.
