I was a bit shocked when I realized what happened. Stop reading this text right now, scroll down and patiently watch this optical illusion and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. No cheating, go look right now!

The Shining Optical Illusion

Now, this is a pretty cool picture and it’s taken from a movie that I really enjoy: The Shining. You see, I’m a pretty big fan of horror movies and this is definitely a creepy movie. If you’re a fan of horror movies, you’ll know that this is a classic one. Even though I liked this image, I didn’t know if it would work well on the site, but then I remembered that this is actually an optical illusion.

I have named this optical illusion the “blowing up optical illusion” and it definitely lives up to its name. The aim of this optical illusion is to stare into the middle of the image and I bet you’ll notice that the image seems to grow or to pulsate while you’re staring into it. Some people have even said that they were able to see certain shapes while they were staring into the middle of this illusion or it felt like they were traveling into the illusion. I would suggest moving your head to the left or right while staring on it. Likewise, you could also move closer and further back from your computer monitor. Doing this will give the optical illusion below an even greater effect. Check out the illusion below to see if you think the illusion is growing or moving in any way. Scroll down to check out this amazing illusion.

One of my personal favorite types of optical illusions is animated gif optical illusions. You don’t see them that often, because they are very difficult to create for the artist. However, some people possess the talent to create these types of illusions and that is what I’m about to share with you right now. This is a Tea GIF optical illusion that is basically an optical illusion that loops itself over and over again. Without a doubt, this is one of those very addicting optical illusions to just stare at. As a matter of fact, it would make the perfect message board avatar if you’re a member of a message board. You would definitely get some attention with this image associated with your name. Either way, scroll down to see what I’m babbling about.

Tea GIF Optical Illusion

See, I told you that you would probably just stare at this illusion. I love watching these types of illusions. I always find myself trying to check the point where the image has been looped and seemingly starts over, but I can’t find the looping point with this one. Are you able to find it? If so, leave a comment and let us know. If you enjoyed this illusion, you shouldn’t hesitate to give it a positive rating. Also, as stated above, feel free to download this illusion and use it as a message board avatar or what not. I guarantee you’ll definitely be able to virtually put people into a trance with it.

This is one of those optical illusions that are just simply amazing. Basically, it’s an optical illusion that has been created by someone that is very good with a camera and working certain angles to give off a very particular effect. There are some people out there that can definitely produce some wonderful effects with nothing more than a camera and this is one of those people. Below, you will find an optical illusion that was created with a camera. Basically, it shows multiple models from multiple angles. I want you to take a look at the image and tell me how you think the cameraman pulled off such an illusion. Are you ready to give it a shot? Scroll down to check out the picture.

Picture From Different Angles Optical Illusion

As you can see, this is a pretty amazing picture. I mean, you have multiple models in the picture and it makes it difficult to tell at which angle the cameraman was shooting from. You have people that are sitting on the ground, people that are seemingly standing on their heads, people that are laying down etc… So, how did the cameraman accomplish a picture like this? Do you know how? If so, you should leave a comment below and let us know at which angle the cameraman shot this photograph from. Also, if you enjoyed this optical illusion, you shouldn’t hesitate to give it a positive rating.

Happy New Years! The new year is officially here and I really hope that 2014 is going to be an amazing year for you and your loves ones. What did you end up doing on New Year’s eve and what are some of your resolutions? Let us know by leaving a comment in the comments section below! Either way, I hope you had a great time and I hope you are able to attain all of your resolutions for this year. Below, I’m going to present you with the first optical illusion of 2014. This optical illusion is dubbed the teach and learn optical illusion, which carries a very heavy message with it. I hope you keep this message with you all year long!

Teach and Learn Optical Illusion

As you can see, when the word teach is inverted, you’re presented with the word “learn.” Now, as I said above, this is a very strong message that you should always remember. It’s important that you are always teaching something to other people. That way, you’re sharing knowledge with others and knowledge is power. It’s also extremely important that you learn things as you progress through life. We all have something to teach each other and there’s always something you can learn about that you never knew before, so it’s always great to keep an open mind that’s willing to learn. Keep this message with you and you will live a very successful and fulfilling life. Once again, Happy New Years!

You know, one of the best types of optical illusions, in my opinion, are afterimages. Basically, an afterimage optical illusion is when you stare at something for a certain period of time and it will mess with your perception or you will even continue to see the image after you have looked away. I realize that I haven’t posted an afterimage optical illusion in quite some time, so I decided to post one up for all of you to check out today. Now, this one is definitely going to mess with your mind, so I’m excited to show it off to all of you. I have dubbed this optical illusion as the larger letter optical illusion.

Did this optical illusion work for you? Basically, you’re supposed to stare at the + symbol in the “B” diagram for 30 seconds. After you’ve stared at the image for 30 seconds, you can switch your focus to the + symbol in the “A” diagram and the letter “A” on the left side should appear to be bigger to you than the letter “A” on the right side. In other words, it gives off the illusion that the letter has actually grown in size. If this illusion worked for you, you should leave a comment in the area below and let us know. Also, feel free to rate this illusion and let us know what you think. Lastly, if you want to impress your friends, you can share this post with them. I bet it will definitely trip them out!
