Miwa Miwa created this cool optical illusion. He gave us premission to show it, so here it is! If you concentrate on the person figure in the middle of the vertigo, you’ll get an impression everything arround him is spinning, and the person appears falling. Really nice illusion, I must say.

  8. Rachael says:

    I don’t think it works with me right. All I see are circles with a guy in the middle. And when I move my head it doesn’t work. Does it have to do with me having perfect eye sight?

  10. Priyal says:

  11. I know!!!!! says:

  12. meeow =^_^= says:

  13. in the words of eli wiatt you cheesestring! says:

  14. 2seeme says:

    lol wow the guy does get bigger but my sis thought he was falling!!! that is strangely strange!! lol

  15. loser says:

    not geting anything*keeps trying…nope nothing

  16. RIT says:

    This doesn’t make any sense to me, the only thing that happens is when I look at the guy in the middle the lines move but then when I look at the lines they stop moving…I don’t see no guy moving

  17. Wilton says:

    Is something wrong???

    Cuz it ain’t happening to me! I can’t see moving things! I can’t see a falling guy!


  18. sour-sugar says:

    Nothing is moving when I look at it

  19. MrPages says:

    The instructions are wrong.

    Look at the guy in the center, but then move your head towards and away from the monitor.

    Why do these things give me headaches?

    LOL, you don’t have to concentrate on anything to get it to work…..just move your head towards and away from the image. ;-)


  22. Dick says:

    WOW! This picture is actually moving!

  23. Mango says:

    nope…nothing…absolute nada. Shame. I’m sure it would be cool if I could make it work.

  24. cheese says:

    i see the spinning but not the falling

  25. Anonymous says:

    I think you have to look at the illusion as a whole. For me the circles spin inward, so the whole damn thing seems to fall with the man. Nicely done.

    that’s funny.. when I read the text above the circles seem to move, but if i stare at the guy in the middle as the text tels me to, it’s just a steady image.. funny, huh?

  27. the technogirl says:

    wtfdtigo? I cant see anything! Does it have to do with my POOR eyesight, like Rachael with her perfect eyesight? /(`.’)\ Anyways, if you move the cursor in circles, on the image, it looks as if the circles are expanding and contracting, forcing the guy down.

  28. Anonymous says:

    Cool but he isnt falling…..is he?

  29. Claudio says:

    when you look at the person, than go with your head from back to forward, then you see it all spinning

    I’m sorry for my bad English, I come from the Netherlands..

  30. Matthew Brown says:

    It doesn’t look like he’s falling, to me
    at least.
