Optical Illusions


Recommended Posts

That's cause there are no black dots!

There are - at the edges of your vision some of the dots appear black. When you move your eyes to 'see' them, they disappear. That's why, as Drew says, it's impossible to do.  :)

Technically not an optical illusion, but I've always liked M.C. Esher's work, such as this one:

Escher is probably my favorite artist.

My eldest brother (uh oh, just realized he is the same age as you. Coincidence? I think not.) got this poster as a teenager and he still has it. He has another one by the same artist but I don't remember what it looks like.

The black dots are the after-images you see on the periphery :) And since they constantly move... you can't count them :rolleyes:

Thanks Drew. I read northie's post about this and I think she had figured it out.

Ooh! I can't stop looking at this one! :orotsnake.gif

 

What ate these two supposed to be? As in, when you look at them what do you see?  All I see is like looking down a funnel. Nothing moving nothing shifting. The only one that stood out to me was the shifting non existent black dots. 

 

 

Ive never seen what most others see in these :(

I think these have to do with colors too. Have you maybe colored contact lenses or some kind of parachromatism? I can't see the difference between some green and blue hues,but I passed the test required for driving.

Thanks Drew. I read glittery's post about this and I think she had figured it out.

 

I think you meant northie :-)

Depending on how your color perception is the top one moves like it is radiating and the second one moves like each of the wheels are turning slightly.

 

You might let your eyes go out of focus a bit and you might see the effect. Its kind of neat when you do.
