This really a nice one. Circular snakes appear to rotate ‘spontaneously’, while in reality this is a static jpeg image..

  • RJ

    Haha, if you focus on one it stops moving, but when you look away it starts again.

    • Dee Em

    Help! For some reason, I can’t see any movement at all!

  • random

    if you look at it at a certain (near the side of a circle), then surrounding circles continuously wobble. Looking into the center won’t work

  • Rob

    Hi, testing out my new gravitar. Hope it worked.
    I see this illusion every so often. i noticed some-day’s it spins faster than other days. Hehe

  • Rogue

    I tried to print this but it didn’t work when it was on paper. I even made it a jpeg and it worked on my computer screen. Are there any other illusions just like this that will work when printed?

    Thanks!

    I saw that on my DSI

  • lynn

    It’s the light from background control the picture movement. It’s the illusion of the light that make you think the picture is moving, but it’s not. It’s the light that they set up from the background of the picture.

  • Everyone

    I found another optical illusion in this one if you use your mouse to make the screen go up and down a few times it starts to turn to black and white or it might just be me i dunno try it!

  • Abas

    If you squint your eyes it turns black and white its cool

  • cometrudolph

    cool its moving but when you look at it it stops moving!

  • Mushberry

    if you just focus on one snake, you would found out it was not really rotating.

  • crysty

    the admin or uploader shouldnt upload this as a GIF ! this is kinda dissapointing . i saved the file in computer and its a GIF ! but i will convert it in a jpeg with adobe photoshop and i will see if there are layers on GIF too.
    For ppl who dont know, GIF is a an image format which is made from layers are those layers are changing after a timeline or a timed sequence.

  • crysty

    well i analized in photoshop and couldnt find layers.I even made a “Print Screen” and pasted to Paint and it still has the illusion effect. So there are hidden information on GIF image to make it moving.

  • crysty

    i mean there are no hidden layers in GIF*

  • http://catna.blogspot.com Gigi

    It’s not animated at all

  • jerry

    I dont see shit. nothing is moving… I smoke a lot of pot… maybe it cancels out?

  • katrina
