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

Believe it or not, these four squares move at the same constant speed

These four squares appear to move at different speeds, stopping and moving, waiting for each other in pairs. In reality, they are always moving at exactly the same constant speed. Seriously. I opened the GIF in Photoshop and used guides to measure it—in every frame, the squares align perfectly. » 4/07/14 8:41pm 4/07/14 8:41pm

This mind-bending optical illusion is freaking the hell out of me

It may seem like this guy has a space-time bending black hole on his skull, which is about to swallow that guy's finger, but of course it's just an awesome optical illusion, created by artist Cory Ferguson, instagrammed by Geometry Chaos.

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.

What kind of sorcery illusion lets these two blocks be the same color?

One is dark, one is light. One is gray, one is white. These are obviously two different blocks with two different colors right? Wrong. The two blocks are the same color. Seriously, they're the same shade of gray. Just place your finger across the seam (where the blocks meet in the middle) to reveal the illusion. Just… » 12/07/13 12:11am 12/07/13 12:11am

You'll Come Out Of This Illusion Exhibit Questioning Everything

It's disorienting to walk into a room where nothing is as it seems. Your doctor might be grimacing even though your test results are fine.
