Optical Illusion Thread


Recommended Posts

Move your head closer to your monitor and stare at the white dot in the middle of the circle for 20 to 30 seconds. Once 20 to 30 seconds have passed, with your sight fixed to the white dot, slowly move away from the monitor. You will witness a light source coming from the other side of the circle or an eclipse.

EDIT: This is now an optical illusion thread. :D

Unfortunately I do not have access to the picture right now, but I saw this picture with a whole lot of circles that apparently moved more and more as you got more stresssed so if you are realy streesed you see them moving a lot but if you're not they just move a bit. Anybody else seen that?

I too didn't realize this thread existed. Might as well add these two beauties...

The dress image is just an optical illusion similar to this one:

In the above image, squares A and B are the same color. Check with eye dropper tool.

In the dress image, your color perception is being manipulated by the context (background color).

In other words, there is no bug in paint.net relating to the eye dropper tool. :P

The TV show BrainGames had an illusion similar to BoltBait's except in color. It looked something like a Rubik's cube, with one side apparently in shadow. The lighted top side had a brown square and the shadowed side had an orange square, but the two squares were actually exactly the same color. It added to the shading illusion the curious fact that brown is seen as a separate hue, not just as dark orange.

(The dress color looks blue to me. I can't imagine it looking white.)

EDIT: Here's the cube:
