Examples like this one below have been posted in the past, most of them are still located inside “Seemingly Bent” category. Original illusion of this type is “Cafe Wall Illusion“. Never the less, I decided to post similar one today. I did this because the effect in the image below is strongest to date. Do you agree? Basically (believe it or not), the lines of the “diamond” you see, are perfectly straight. Hard to believe, isn’t it? The effect is achieved by smaller black and white squares, and dots arranged inside of them. Those of you with keen eye for details will notice the light background shares the same effect. Anyone understands why we get the impression that lines are bent? Help! Sorry for so much links inside this post, but I did this to make it easy for you to find most similar optical illusions.
The image was taken from the book ‘new optical illusions’ and ‘big book of optical illusions’ by Gianni A. Sarcone.
Concerning our web-ring of websites, Mighty Flicks started rolling quite serious. The man behind our sister-site is my cousin Mr. Boycie, and it seems he updates it almost daily. Its just that he needs to get hang of it, because I noticed he is posting some “edgy” stuff that some people would consider little obscene. Please instruct him what to change to get his site safer for visitors, and please give him insight what is considered tasteful inside blogging world, and what isn’t.
