Is it only me, or do these circles composed of black and white squares, seem to cross-over? You be the judge! It worked for me… Amazing. Similar one here. I’m still not sure how these illusions work, and boy, we had many of them here in the past. Another version would be the one, where the concentric circles seem to make a spiral. Be sure to check more of these in seemingly bent category. Mind can be though to deceive, but that isn’t the case with this website. Enjoy and don’t go delusional!

    Really nice illusion. I had to check to see if there were really circles and not just a spiral!!

  • Skinnybrown

    They also appear to rotate as you scroll the window.

    Very cool illusion! Even after you look at it for a while, the illusion is still there. And yes, scrolling adds its own illusion.

  • dan

    the angle of the squares makes it appere that the circles cross over each other vary tripy. I’ve seen something similar but can’t remember where

  • KAT

    i had to trace the circle with my fingers to check they were circles. i guess it’s all about the shape & position of the squares.

    It just seems to confuse my eyes so that it looks like they are crossed.

  • Don Camillo

    There seems to me another illusion:
    If you scroll up the circles, they rotate to the right. If you scroll down the circles, they rotate to the left. Weird, isn’t it?
    Wonder why no other discoverd this illusion before.

    If you squint your eyes they stop crossing over as well. Might have something to do with the grey background?

  • FrankandJoe3

    Wow…. i liked that

  • FrankandJoe3

    Wow…. i liked that a lot. very confusing

  • Ray

    Very confusing and awesome, but I debunked it:

    You see how the outer layer of circles has the squares facing a certain way? well the next layer has the squares going in an opposite direction. If all of the squares were facing the same direction (and they were the same color), it wouldn’t look as if they cross.

  • Jez

    lol, had to trace them just to be sure.

    Hard not to make a mistake

  • Carbozie

    Very nice !

  • Graeme

    This images really works – looking like a spiral.

    BUT half close your eyes and immediately the spiral effect disappears and you have a tidy set of circles.

  • ghafar

    Really… fantastic



  • Neeraj

    Really amazing, it seems that two different coils crossing each other.. very nice….

  • jitendra kumar

    they do not cross each other ………these r simple circles

  • mp.stair

    It also seems to move, when you move the picture up and down. It’s kind of cool.

  • jayendra

    just make your eye and see it, it is just four rounds. but it is really amazing…..

  • Brandon

    it happens due to the angle the squares r at. and notice if u try to look at the “crossing” circles they return to normal

  • hannah

    look to it from the side of your computer..you’re welcome.
