illusions (i LIKE illusions)
  • i always identify elephants by touch. less chance of mistaking one for a wall.
  • Wellll...!

    THAT woke me up on a Monday!! ;-)

    Thanks, Chris. Now if I could only pull myself away...
  • ogods

    that is genius, and i can_not_look. ;) i may hurl even though i looked away really fast. good one!

    I'm with you... me said 'the illusion is that it's an illusion', so it's not, to my eyes too... :happy:
  • the pyramids appear to be move up or down depending on where you stare
  • hmm - always down for me
  • well i guess it’s a shit illusion then...
  • Yes but they are moving, so it's not an illusion... with the other shit they aren't moving but look like they are! Call me fussy but that's what I'd call an illusion :)
  • oh my god the illusion is that they can appear to move in either direction, have you know redifined what an illusion is, the spinning woman is movin g too is that not an illusion, i seriously hope you eople are fucking with me right now because if not am i assume you are alll on crack

    Yes, so, the lady moves but she DOES appear to go both ways!

    That shit only ever appears to move down, whichever way I look at it, and believe me I've just about made myself sick with dizziness trying to look at it different ways!! And whose calling who a crack head! Kettle ;)



    :happy: just messin'
    (but still, it only moves down! :happy: )
  • well they do appear to move both ways, that is the illusion, i apologize for the crack statement
  • orsonrockwell said...i apologize for the crack statement


    Why, it was funny... I was only pulling your chain. Oh, go on, what did you edit?

    :happy:
  • oh that was nothing bad i posted twice
  • all i see is superman!
  • quit looking in the mirror. :)

    eep... chris's triangles are just as dizzying when teeny.


    i have the illusion the room is spinning. wheeeee!
  • illusion

    the hollow face illusion is really cool. i'd seen the dragon statue illusion, but the celluloid face example ^ is even eerier.



    ah... dragon

  • oh hell, that's crazy. :D

    i nearly got queasy, with a very short scroll.

    wonderful!
  • this is nothing like the illusions i usually go for

    but it's very striking. :)
  • dudes, those pyramids go down when you look directly at them, and appear to move up when you aren't looking directly at them (yet can still see them from the corner of your eyes).

    jeeeeez!

  • thanks for having my back...where were you in february when the argument happened...those wheels(rims?) are badass
  • i think i had a seizure in february from all these optical illusions fucking with my brain ;)
  • those mirrored wheels are truly disorienting. :D *like*


    yeah, i can't even look at the triangles for more than a half second.


    ......................



    another unnerving way to fuck with my head:


  • the blue circle got me all queasy. ;) awesome.

    "profile" cutout is really clever.

    i saw 16 circles, but not all at once!

    the countdown in that ^ animation is really helpful. the colour effect only lasted a second for me, but i did see it!


    i wish i'd done that (the countdown ani). as it is, you'll have to stare at her nose and count slowly to 30.

    nose grl
  • a really great example of this type of foolery.

    same grey

    hold your finger sideways over the line between the two blocks.
  • this never gets old. i amazed some 10-year-olds with it this morning.

    circle jerk 1

    circle jerk 2
  • this is good. ignore all the hints to click something... you just end up with other stuff from the channel.

    it's about saccades and how our eyes handle fast focus switches, giving an illusion of time slowing down.




  • Hey, I never knew that.
  • oh what fun!

    i want to do that.
  • ^Creepy but fun!!!
  • ^ ôoohhhh!!!!
  • i nearly didn't make it to the end of 30 seconds. :D things went quease-side.

    great effect; it sure fooled my brain!

  • a nice example

    yes, stare at the center dot.
  • I think the drugs I do are safer than looking at some of these pictures!
