Your Brain Will Melt After You See This Negative Image

Illustration for article titled Your Brain Will Melt After You See This Negative Image

Want to add more wrinkles to that ol' brain of yours? Stare at the colored dots on the girl's nose in the photo above for 30 seconds. Then look at a white surface (blank browser, mayhaps) and start blinking. You should see a non-negative image of the girl. WHAT. BRAIN. MELTING. WHAT. OHMYGOD. Yep, that jiggly stuff in your head just processed a negative image. Sweet. [PetaPixel]

This effect has been known for a long time and it can be pretty cool (and even useful). As a kid I learned of this and spent a lot of time drawing negative images in crayon/marker only to stare at them and get the proper colors when then staring at a white wall. It's really easy too. Just use the opposite side of the color wheel (and black=white) in your image. Voila!

Also, you don't need the three dots at all for this to work.
