Another motion-induced induced-motion optical illusion by Kaia Nao uses an excerpt from Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” combined with his special pattern, pulling us right into the spinning vortex. Perhaps Kaia wanted us to experience the same thing Nautilus’ crew did, when they were whirling down one of these on their exciting journey. It’s amazing how strong the illusion is, specially when you concentrate and try to read the text

    Focusing on a single spot – nothing moves, but reading the text quickly – the spiral rotates!

    This is maybe the lamest “illusion” I’ve ever seen.

    I’m sure it’s not good if you get sea sickness! :p

    Not motion-induced, but induced motion.

    Motion-induced means that the illusion is brought about (induced) by actual motion.

    Induced motion means that the illusion is of created (induced) motion where there is none.

    (I suppose you could be really picky and say that your eyes are moving, and so argue the illusion *is* motion-induced, but I would still beg to differ.)

    That said, it is a good example – the text also seems to wobble about as you’re reading it – that’s due to the changing shadow-pattern on the letters and the choice of font.

    Completely awesome. Love these ones, and the effect is extra strong with the passage.

    I think just the complementary colors would do fine here. Is the shadow/lighting change afecting it even more or what’s the point?
