Some people see this dress as white & gold while others see black & blue

I don't know where this image originates from but it's around the Internet right now and it shows a picture of a dress that is so very clearly white and gold to me but is black and blue to so many other people. It's black and blue to Google Image Search. Photoshop's eyedropper tool says it's black and blue. But I only… » 2/26/15 8:26pm Thursday 8:26pm

These cool animated optical illusions never get old

I never get tired of Brusspup's Amazing Animated Optical Illusions series because I love making my eyes feel dumb and in turn making myself feel even dumber. It's always good to humble yourself with optical illusions. Especially optical illusions that seem to be animated to move but are actually just well designed… » 12/16/14 12:04am 12/16/14 12:04am

Magician can guess the card you're thinking about through this video

Our eyes are too slow and our brains are too easily fooled. Just watch this video where Illusionist Eric Leclerc shows off by reading our minds through a simple YouTube video. He plays around with us in the beginning but at the end, he just jumped through the computer screen to peer into our wrinkled brain. » 7/21/14 8:58pm 7/21/14 8:58pm

This colorful image disappears completely if you keep staring at it

It's always fun to play a trick on your eyes. They're so easily fooled! Take this illusion, for example. It's an old favorite. If you stare at the image long enough, the colors in the picture start fading away and eventually disappear. The colorful blobs shrink like evaporating water puddles » 6/09/14 8:46pm 6/09/14 8:46pm

Whoa, this biker looks like he's trapped inside a video game level

What a tricky mind trip. Though it looks like this fixed gear biker is playing a video game or stuck inside a M.C. Escher drawing or a part of an optical illusion, he's actually riding on a real bike course made with real ramps and doing real jumps. It just looks crazy from our perspective » 4/30/14 11:39pm 4/30/14 11:39pm

The images in this video can actually screw up your brain and vision

I squinted my eyes and covered the screen and looked away when I was watching this video by Tom Scott because I don't want to have colored vertical and horizontal lines ingrained in my vision because my brain got fried from staring too long at the images in the video. So I suggest you do the same and look away. No,… » 1/27/14 11:23pm 1/27/14 11:23pm

How did a toy car magically appear behind these two pieces of paper?

In this illusion, a toy car seemingly appears from no where. How is that possible? Well, the car was always there. Really. It's a simple but masterful trick, the toy car is programmed to travel along a designated route while the red cards are shown off as a distraction. As one card is shown to reveal nothing behind… » 12/27/13 6:44pm 12/27/13 6:44pm

This amazing T-rex illusion is somehow moving its head to follow you

As far as tyrannosaurus rex replicas go, this one seems pretty cheery. Sure, it has sharp teeth and claws but they look playfully toothy. One thing scary about it though: the head and eyes seems to follow you wherever you go. Like the paper T-Rex is watching your every move. What's scarier? It's not actually moving.… » 12/23/13 9:12pm 12/23/13 9:12pm
