Purple Haze Video Optical Illusion

Jimi Hendrix

Hy guys! Another update before I go to sleep. I discovered new video player Adbrite released, and am currently doing some tests with it. As you probably noticed, usually I don’t put embeddable videos on this site. I never liked those YouTube or Google video players. Somehow they make a site ugly to me. This is the reason I never posted them before. Here and then I gave you external link to some optical illusion videos, which you probably noticed in our videos section. However, this video player looks acceptable, and has some nifty options like embedding website logo in it. As I probably mentioned in the past, I get quite a few video submissions daily, and from now on, I could start posting them. Here’s where you come up! I need you to post some comments regarding this, and if you would like to see optical illusion videos post on moillusions.com more often? As a test, I placed really cool Hallucination video, that somehow reminded me of Jimmy Hendrix and his Purple Haze song. It’s a variation of Pinwheel animation we already have in archives. I would really like to know how you feel about this, and if I should keep videos, or ignore them in the future? Thanks for making this site better (if you noticed, your opinion is really important to me!)

    Very nice. Enjoy the website. Keep up the great work. Quality of the player is real good, too. Real clean & uncheesy & url in the corner is a nice touch.

    First Post!

  23. PC SQUIRREL says:

    If that is what happens when you look at a few moving lines for 30 seconds, imagine what watching your flickering tv is doing to you. :o

    and you stare at that for hours on end….. worth thinking about..
    “What are they making our eyes NOT SEE_!”

  24. Johannes says:

    Problem. Jimmy was left handed and the image shows a righthanded Jimmy.

  25. Steven says:

    Unable to view video in firefox, even when using IE as the rendering engine.

  26. AK says:

    Excellent!Definitely put in more videos, they are excellent. This one is very long and its gets kinda boring and frustrating in the middle, buts it worth it in the end

  27. H4N5 says:

    Firefox works fine with me.

  28. victor says:

    Ehm. Johannes, you do know that a left handed guitarist would use his left hand to strum, and his right hand on the frets right. This picture shows handrix playing in a left handed fashion, seems ok to me.

  29. AuntieAshley says:

    sweet! everything moves when you look away from the screen!!! try looking at the celing!!

    “Problem. Jimmy was left handed and the image shows a righthanded Jimmy.”~ johannes

    i am a right hand guitar player, and its my left hand that plays on the neck of the guitar (the long scrawny part) so if Jimmy was left handed, hed play on the neck with his right hand.

    hope i cleared things up!

    btw i loved this illusion but i had to stare forever before i got to see it.

  31. Elliexx ANIMALS ROCK!! says:

  56. Hope says:

    Nothing happened to me and I did exactly what it said. I didn’t blink either if that’s what you’re thinking.

  62. jacob says:

    WOW! that was awesome!

  63. Mike says:

    If you sit at the edge of a river and watch the water go by for a while, and then look at the grass or sand in front of you, it will appear to move also, but in the opposite direction.

  64. Denise says:

    Pretty neat my floor was moving. Was just hoping I wasn’t being subliminally hypnotized. Hmm…now I have this strange urge to go to Walmart wearing a tomato on my head

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
