Re: Optical Illusions Thread

This is a good one:



Stare at the center dot and watch what happens.

Found at BrainBashers.com. They have a lot of illusions, some of them already linked to ITT, but they have a mouse-over Javascript doohickey that isolates what you're looking at from what's causing the illusion. So you don't need to open MS Paint to prove that those chessboard squares were the same color.

Is this an optical illusion? Or, is it just a style of animation?

On all the others I can cover stuff up and see the same color - on this one I need photoshop.

Yea I don't think these things count as optical illusions. Cool regardless though.

Bump

I've just found this awesome site for a competition that's been running for 10 years - http://illusionoftheyear.com/

Tons of mind bending stuff in there.


Mask of a face or mask of two people kissing.
