How easily can you be fooled? Our brains are pretty amazing and they’ve developed really incredible methods and coping mechanisms to help us make sense of our world. Parts of our brain simply aren’t perfect though, which result in optical illusions. Not technically a bad thing!
1. The images below actually aren’t animated, but our brain tells us that they are.
2. This image uses a similar technique.
3. Same goes for this one!
4. Do these cars look like they’re different sizes to you?
The truth is that they’re all the same!
5. It looks like these dots are changing colors and rotating, but if you focus on a single dot you’ll see that simply isn’t true.
6. This illusion is similar. Stare at the cross in the center and watch what happens to the blank spot.
7. This giant globe appears 3D…
…but the truth is that it is actually flat!
8. Which orange circle looks larger to you?
They’re actually the same size!
9. If you stare at the yellow dot and move closer to the screen, the rings will rotate.
10. Can you believe the A and B squares below are actually the same color?
…here is proof!
11. Stare at this photo for 30 seconds, then look at the following image.
12. In this image, the back wall of the room is slanted towards the camera, and the ceiling is slanted downwards. This distorts our depth perception.
13. The yellow and blue bars appear to nudge forward at different times, right?
14. Looking closely at this image will make it appear lighter, but when you move away it appears darker.
This is a result of the dynamic luminance-gradient effect by Alan Stubbs.
15. Stare at the center of this image while it is showing the colored version, and then wait for it to turn to black and white.
16. All of the dots in this image are actually white.
17. This amazing illusion by Brusspup shows how the human brain and eyes can be manipulated by using a black lined card.
18. Their eyes will follow you no matter your direction!
