This interesting looping animation is consisted of only three frames. It creates an interesting illusion of fluid motion. Can you see the motorcycle cruising continuously in up-street direction? If you concentrate and focus solely on the street in front of the bike, the illusion becomes clear. Be sure to open the animation in full size […]
Scrolling this image up and down, or moving your head simultaneously while observing the sphere produces an interesting optical illusion effect – a floating movement of the central object. Simple as that. Be sure to browse through our #animations category for more similar stuff!
Here’s an excellent “wavy” animation discovered by Till Hartmann. It’s a great illustration of a collective phenomena. When you observe closely, each dot travels along a regular circle-path. Since most of the circles are mutually out of phase, they form illusive waves floating steadily across the screen. Things like this happen all over the place; just […]
Let me show you something that one of my colleagues has just discovered recently. If you concentrate on the black spot in the continuous animation below, the moving stripe will turn BLUE!

Just like the title says – go ahead and scroll this image up and down… or you can simply try moving your head up and down, or sideways and observe the magic as it happens right in front of you! This flying square is an alteration of an alteration of an illusion we’ve posted some […]

As you can see, the end result is pretty amazing – It seems as if the hexagon slowly pulsates with each frame-change. Even though none of that is real, and each and […]
Michael caught a remarkable show on National Geographic the other day, featuring some of the most interesting optical illusions of our time. Most of them we have already featured on this site. One of the featured illusions that made him scratch his head were the spinning balls you can see in this animation below. This […]
In which direction does this #train move? From which end of the tunnel is it arriving from? It might be both! Check if you can “see” a different direction each time you look at it? If you stare long enough, you might even make the train change its course. Today’s illusion works in the same […]
