Do you remember those old shows where the eyes in a creepy painting seem to follow you wherever you go. You know the ones, right? Someone is walking through an old, abandoned house and all of a sudden the eyes move and watch wherever they go. When I was first sent this animated gif eye illusion, it reminded me of one of those movies. Take a look for yourself and share your thoughts as you stare at this!
What did you get out of it when you looked at it? Did it suck you in and leave you in a trance like state? Even though it does hook you into its swirling color and insane illusion, you don’t have to worry about anyone hiding behind a picture waiting to jump out and grab you. Just watching it spin in a circle is enough to make you dizzy if you keep staring at it. Regardless of the color, it is the sheer movement that gets you every time. This eye illusion is one unlike I have ever seen before when searching for illusions.
Do you notice how it seems as if the depth of the eye illusion changes? As it swirls around, it seems to go from deeper to shallower without really having to do much at all. Who would have thought something so simple could be so intriguing? The next time you watch one of those movies, are you going to think about this cool illusion and remember the swirling colors as they follow you around the room? I think the color choice helps to bring the illusion together and make it that much more amazing, but everyone is going to have their own perception of the animated illusion, so you tell me what you think.
Alright, so you’ve definitely heard the name David Blaine. He’s clearly one of the most amazing illusionists in the world today and possibly even history. After that ABC special the other night, a colleague of mine showed me this classic footage of David Blaine street magic. After watching this a few times I just had to share it with the rest of you. Other than the possibility that girl is in on the trick, I just couldn’t see how in the world he was able to pull this off. Take a look and see what you think about the techniques used to make this street magic happen.
If you haven’t seen David Blaine street magic, this is one of those times that you might not want to be part of the illusion. The last thing I want is someone making my teeth disappear! Regardless of whether it is only for a few moments or not, the thought of having someone take the teeth right out of my mouth is more than I want to be a part of. What would you do it if he asked you to be part of the show? Would you step up to the plate?
This guy is loaded with different illusions that you truly have to see to try and believe. Until you are able to witness in person the countless illusions he has pulled off, you won’t be able to realize how much he simply defies everything that makes sense. Even though this video only shows just one illusion, I’ll be sharing a lot more of David Blaine street magic so you’ll be able to find more of his work. From card tricks to making things disappear, this guy can truly do just about anything he sets his mind to. See for yourself.
Hopefully at one point or another, you’ve been blessed to have witnessed a beautiful anamorphic painting such as the one below. Maybe, you didn’t realize you even came across one and you completely overlooked the sheer beauty. Walking through the streets in Barcelona, I stumbled upon a work of art that made me stop dead in my tracks just to take in how amazing the street art truly was. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to capture a picture. This inspired me to find another piece that was comparable. This incredible piece of anamorphic street art is one that you simply cannot ignore. If I were to have seen this as I was strolling the streets, I would have been worried that I would fall into the water!
Children and adults alike have to love the sheer detailing, choice of color and depth of this anamorphic painting. Since the area is roped off, it helps to add to the illusion and make you stop and think about it even more. The choice of color and texture that was used in this piece is something that required a lot of time and dedication. For me, I am barely capable of drawing a simple house or tree, let alone anything of this caliber.
Until you have seen something like this in person, you aren’t able to truly appreciate how much work it took to create this anamorphic painting. If you had the time, would you be able to create something as intricate and detailed as this piece right here? Would you have been able to think about creating a design such as this and know how to go about it? Anyone who has this much talent is simply astonishing in my mind. The next time you see something like this art, take the time to sit back and take it all in to see how the illusion was created in the first place.
Let me start off by saying that if you are prone to motion sickness, this might not be the best video for you. With just 15 beads attached by string to a beam above, this incredible trick is just out of control! I can’t believe this is actually possible. These pendulum waves create intricate designs one after another. All I could do is wonder what was coming next. Take a good look at this work of art and lets see who can figure out how its all possible.
I mean it starts off going in a wavelike motion, but then it takes an entirely new direction and starts spiraling around with the numerous beads going in all different directions. The beads start swaying from side to side before forming into two lines and create a wonderful back and forth design. Just when you think you have it figured out, the beads end up separating into individual units and sway in an entirely different motion! Next thing you know, the beads are swaying in a few groups before they join together and start the motion all over again.
How is it that these pendulum waves are able to do all of these different motions with just a single swipe of the beads to get them started? I don’t know about you, but I have yet to figure out how this whole thing works. It had me the minute the beads started doing all different movements and swaying in a variety of different ways. These pendulum waves perform so many different movements that it’s hard to keep up with them all. What are your thoughts on this? Would you consider it as an optical illusion? This video is definitely ideal at keeping the kids and pets entertained and amazed.
Many people have a hard time grasping what the meaning behind an optical illusion really is. I am no exception to the rule although I try my best to decipher the true meaning behind these works of art! Depending on the illusion, I can sit there for what seems like forever and never really get to the bottom of it. This Tetrahedron wasn’t any different for me. After looking at it for a little while, I still couldn’t quite grasp what the whole point of it was. It only appeared to be a spinning triangle that boasted a variety of colors in the image itself.
You tell me. What did you get out of this animated gif? Am I totally missing something in this simplistic piece of art? Did you notice how the color changes as the Tetrahedron spins around? The way the light reflects through the image is pretty cool and not something I would have ever thought of on my own. In reality, this thing is so simple that it shouldn’t be as intriguing as it is. Yet, I find myself sitting here and staring at the thing as it rotates round and round changing color along the way.
From green to brown to green to brown, the color changing technology in this Tetrahedron is something that you have to watch and observe to gain a full understanding of the illusion. Even though it looks like a triangle to me, that doesn’t mean you are going to think the same thing. Everyone has their own opinion on what optical illusions are cool and which ones they find boring or uninteresting. Take the time to explore this rotating shape and see what you get out of it. Maybe you will see something that I didn’t, but for me, it really was something simple and amazing all at the same time.
As far as brain teasers are concerned, this one created by Istvan Orosz left me clueless as to what connects to what. When I first stumbled across this illusion, I sat for a few minutes trying to determine how it was even possible, how one column connects to another and yet appears to be different. Take a moment and sit back. Look deep into this illusion and share with me what you find. What is the first thought that crosses your mind? Did you catch on to this brain teaser right away or are you as lost as I am?
For me, I found myself turning my head trying to set this optical illusion straight. The more I turned my head, the more crooked it seemed to become. I mean in all honesty, there is no possible way that a building could be constructed in this manner, right? If that were the case, I would love to see it for myself. I don’t think I would be brave enough to try and walk around the structure, but it sure would be interesting to see something like this in real life. How about you? What are your thoughts on the whole thing?
Sure, plenty of brain teasers are out there, but did you ever see something as intriguing as this one is? Regardless of how many illusions you might have seen, each one brings something new and unique to the table. Until you have the chance to take in this illusion, you won’t be able to understand the complexities of the illusion itself. Consider what it would feel like trying to walk along the edges of the structure, while maintaining your balance and going from one level to the next. Do you think you would be capable of being able to make it without falling off the edge?
When it comes to these types of animations, some are a little easier to figure out than others. As someone who has been an avid fan of optical illusions for decades, there are still some that continue to catch me off guard. You might be able to glance quickly at some and decipher what the supposed illusion is in a matter of moments. Others, you might sit there for hours on end trying to figure out what exactly is going on. Take the time to study this illusion and dig into our collection of cool optical illusions. I can assure you nothing else will ever compare to what you are going to witness here.
At first, the brain teaser seems like nothing more than a bunch of colorful circles on a purple background. In reality, it is much more than that. When you stop to look at the picture, you can see the circles spinning about in all different directions. It literally almost puts you into a hypnotic trance that you have to try and escape and draw yourself away from. As I sat there looking at these cool optical illusions, I caught myself swirling and tilting my head from one side to another just to try and level myself out and get back on an even keel.
Now, I don’t know about you, but seeing a bunch of swirling circles is definitely one way to make you want to lose your lunch or go take a nap. You pick. For me, this was much more than what I had expected. From a child’s perspective, they might see tires spinning around and wondering why something like that is going on with the picture. Everyone has their own ideas and perceptions. See what your friends and family members think about the image and embrace cool optical illusions for what they really are. Make sure to give your eyes some time to focus before trying to run around the house or you might just end up running into something along the way.
How many times have you looked at an optical illusion and sat there just trying to figure it out what’s going on? I was looking diligently to find a quality brain teaser and I found this, Picasso’s Guernica, one that you should try and sort out for yourself. I don’t know about you, but the first time I looked at it, I was in complete disarray.
Even though it is a fairly simple black-and-white color scheme, you will be in astonishment at how much really comes to life in this animated gif. Take a look and you let me what you think about this creepy yet stunning picture. It will truly open your eyes to something you have never imagined before.
Upon first glance, I thought the images were going to jump out of my screen and into my lap! It was as if they were flying at me at an extremely and unexpectedly fast pace. Everyone is going to have their own perception of this Picasso Guernica, but the end result will still be the same. The images truly come to life in a manner like you haven’t seen before. What was the first thing you noticed about the animated Guernica? Was it the bull that was lunging forward or the horse-like creature in the middle of the screen?
Maybe, for you, it was the head in the corner that drew you into its glaring image. If you sit and look at it long enough, you might end up feeling a little queasy. For me, a couple seconds was all I could take before I had to call it quits. This amazing optical illusion of Picasso Guernica is one that I will never forget. I mean, who could forget an illusion where things were leaping out at them made them push back farther into their seat and away from the computer screen. I know I can’t.
