Whoopee, this one is supercool! This is how it works: simply look at the center dot for about 40 seconds, and then look away. Do you see any bulging effect? You tell me!

  13. Farrukh says:

    Its our nature that we keep in our brain the inverted image in binary… look at any image for about 30 seconds,,, then look on the roof or something, and you will see an inverted image of the one you were looking at … :)

  56. scottie says:

    I agree with goliatmo (28) if you play Guitar Hero a long time it feels like every thing is coming towards you. I expect the same thing happens with DDR.
