# Spinning Discs Illusion

By on April 6, 2006, with 50 Comments

This one’s too easy. Just answer which disc is turning faster, A or B? My guess goes on B! This works in a same way “Rotating Snakes” and “Rotating Snakes no.2″ Illusions work.

3. Jay says:

None of them are spinning..

• Toby says:

ya, just movement illusion

• yfhrtgjuf says:

star at the text not the pic and it will move

4. Squiggy says:

Jay is right… neither of them are moving. Don’t move your eyes, and you’ll see what i mean. they only seem to be moving when you move your eyes around them.

5. RIYA says:

i can see the other wheel moving if i concenterate on one …i suggest plz donot concenterate deeply..just give casual glance to A..u’ll see the outer circle of B moving and vice-a-versa..good one..i must say

6. boopit says:

7. Lindsay says:

8. mimi says:

b

9. niki says:

yeah, neigther one are actually moving. I think B turns faster though :P

10. M 2 the H O says:

they arnt moving but its the size of the patterns that make you see that 1 is turning faster, that or you only think 1 is going faster because thats what youv been told and believe! pretty cool though.
ps.
if you glance back and forth you see that and think that they are only moving when your not looking,
FrEaKy!
MwAhAhAhahahahaHAHAHAHA!
i need a pint

11. Mimi2 says:

B

12. MMM says:

They don’t move…
but if you want to put the tings like that,
try to look at the name of the illusion,
and they spin the same velocity!
Very cool illusion!

20. Nora says:

obviously none of them are spinning its just a trick

but both f them are moving at the same spead
the that u fcus on more always is the on that goes faster

21. plym says:

Both circles are static. If you cover one and examine the other, you will see that the exposed one is not moving. It is only when you look at both circles simultaneaously, that they SEEM to be spinning. It is an other instance of the brain fooling the eye, or vice verca.

23. Illusionist says:

25. Anonymous says:

30. Natalie says:

31. crmen says:

32. coy says:

the same

33. Lucas says:

when i look to A, B moves, when I look to B, A moves but both with the same speed

34. Max says:

i think they are the same speed

35. kristi says:

i think they are spinning at the same speed ( when you are observing the illusion aspect of it)

36. tevor says:

ok so wen you loke at A, B spins and wen you loke at B, A spins AorB dont spine wen you look at it

37. amelia says:

for me when i looked at a b moved and b a moved so they move at the same pace

38. schultz24 says:

a is moving just a littel bit faster.

39. Eamon Fearon says:

Well when you look at the letter ( A ) The letter ( B ) slows down and vice versa and when you look at Letter ( B ) Letter ( A ) slows down so its hard to tell which is the fastest

40. Shoshanna says:

A, for me. sometimes they rotate at the same, or very similar speed. however, it could depend on which angle you look at it, the distance, or if you’re “left eyed” or “right eyed”.

I’m not a scientist. Even if my formal language makes me one.

41. Aye-Yo says:

None O3O

• Monkey says:

it is one, just its different each time.

42. zee says:

That is crazii…your mind tells you they’re NOT moving, but your eyes do 10/10!!!

43. Monkey says:

It depends where you look. sometimes it ‘A’ sometimes its ‘B’

44. Andrew says:

Depends where you look.

45. Renee Ramsey says:

They are both spinning at the same speed.

46. Hannah;) says:
