Enjoy a good brain teaser every now and then? If you said yes to this then I dare you to take a chance at this brain teaser. The object of this exercise is to say the name of the color the word is printed in, not what the word says. The second part of this […]
Here’s an illusion discovered and sent in by one of our fans from Croatia. As it appears both central squares are different in color, but are they really? Apparently, if you try with any other colour the results will appear the same. More similar stuff can be found inside our #color adapting category.
An excellent billboard campaign was produced by Mcann Bangkok few years back. I’m surprised it hasn’t surfaced our blog earlier. As can be seen from example photographs below, advertised color bleach removes stains pretty fast!

Arjen Goldschmidt has sent in what appears to be the best (proof-endorsed) color optical illusion I have seen up to date! Below examples showcase embedded lines of seemingly different colors. The reason they look different is because our brain judges the color of an object by comparing it to surrounding colors. So without us even […]
This is one of my childhood’s favorite visual illusions, one you could literally have spent hours playing with! Unfortunately, back then I wasn’t aware it was invented by C.E. Benham, and that it already had a name – Benham’s Disk. It was pretty popular back in the “old days”, as you could easily make your […]
