Creepy body painting makes it look like you can see the guts and bones of a hand

It starts off a little cartoonish but then it quickly turns creepy and almost squeamish as the hand starts to legitimately look like it’s been sliced to expose the blood, guts, and bones. Luckily, for us and for Natalie Nakles, the artist who did this, it’s only the work of markers, pens, and clever camera angles.… » 8/26/15 8:40pm Wednesday 8:40pm

Which of these leaves are not actually real?

Super photorealistic drawings are always fun to see because they tickle your brain into thinking things that you know are fake could possibly maybe be real because they just look so similar. Here’s a drawing from Dino Tomic showing a leaf drawing with a pile of other leaves. It’s hard to tell which one is fake! » 7/06/15 8:20pm 7/06/15 8:20pm

Oculus Used These Optical Illusions to Prove Everything We Know Is Wrong

Virtual reality isn't ready yet. Oh, it's damn good—but it can't quite fully convince you that you are someplace you're not. But how sure are you of the "real world," anyhow?

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 2/26/15 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
