CONTENT SPOTLIGHT – OPTICAL ILLUSIONS
NOTE: Please use caution if you are prone to queasiness or other problems with illusions. Also note: some of the images are animated, or appear to be moving.
Stare long enough and strange things happen.
Stare at the red dot long enough, and the grey stripes will disappear.
A convincing illusion.
Believe it or not, these lines are straight and parallel.
The colors aren’t what they seem in this image.
The two birds in this image are identical. Not just in size and shape, but in color too.
Which color? Which direction?
What’s your first impression of this image? Yellow arrows pointing left, or green arrows pointing right? There is no “correct” answer, but different people perceive this image differently at first.
More deceptive than it seems.
Another “false spiral” — actually a series of concentric circles, hard as it may be to believe. To prove that there’s no spiral, try tracing your finger around one of the circles. You’ll see that it never moves inward or outward.
So Close, So Far
Get a little distance for this illusion.
Lean up close to your monitor. What does this image say?
Try stepping back a few feet. What does it say now?
This illusion lives on the edge.
What appears to be a gaping chasm in the Middle of the street.
Is actually a street painting, seen here in mid-creation.
Something’s bent out of shape here.
More bang for your buck! This three-in-one illusion includes a false spiral, an impossible Escher-esque structure, and what appears to be a seriously warped floor…
With the black and white squares removed from the tiles, we see that the lines on the floor are perfectly straight.
Get a new perspective in this puzzler.
Are the walls of this house facing outward, or inward?
ANSWER: Depends on how you look at it. If you isolate the top portion of the image, the house appears to be concave, facing inward. Isolate the bottom, and the perspective is reversed.
Dots in a Circle
Test your spatial perception.
Which of these two dots is in the true center of the circle?
ANSWER: With the distracting lines out of the way, it’s apparent that the green dot is at the center.
Shed a little light on this problem.
Which square is a lighter shade, A or B?
ANSWER: Taken out of context, you can see A and B are the same shade. Our familiarity with light and shadow tricks us into thinking B is “actually” lighter than A.
A classic illusion.
Here’s a simple one. Are these two rows of squares perfectly parallel?
ANSWER: They are indeed perfectly parallel, which becomes more apparent when the line between them is highlighted.
Can you tell which of these cars is the largest?
Believe it or not, the rightmost car is the largest. Our brain is wired to take perspective into account, hence the common perception that the leftmost car is larger.
Wavy Lines ?
Is the movement real or imagined ?
Try moving your mouse pointer down across this image, following the pointer closely with your eyes. You should see a rippling effect moving through the picture — even though it’s a completely static image!
A moving experience
Believe it or not, this image is not animated. The effect persists only in your peripheral vision; if you focus on any one of the spirals, it will stop moving.
