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

This one is cool. 8) Stare at the dot in the centre for ten seconds, then move your head closer and further away from the screen.

I've seen the above one before... really freaky.

This is another really insane one.

The lines of checkered squares aren't squashed the way they look. No, really! Check it in PdN or something, you'll see you get the same Y coordinate for both ends of a the line.

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?

Look at it for a while and you will begin to see that there are actually two perfect circles...i bet lots of you have seen this one before.

Some of the above were created by Akiyoshi KITAOKA -- I thought he ought to get credit for his work :)

Here are just a couple more of his brilliant illusions; there's many, many more at his site

An optical illusion of my own.  :)  Made with Paint.net, Red Ochre's Bevel Object and Boltbait's Fill From Clipboard.

Great work Eli! B)

I didn't know this thread existed - many thanks for reviving it.

The revolving wheel/snakes in ed Harvey's post (#14) is very effective too.

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:

same-color-illusio_1121075i.jpg

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:

While not a true optical illusion, it will make you dizzy if you stare at it long enough after a few drinks. :beer: I had fun making it anyway. :beer:  :beer:

Here's my version on the checkerboard shading illusion. It's  png instead of jpeg, so there are no encoding artifacts. I produced it almost entirely with Shape3D.

As you look at these dice, try to determine if they are standing up, or laying flat.

It seems as if they are doing both.
