This one’s neat! Here’s what I want you to do: simply stare at the black cross in the center of this picture for 30 seconds or more. Then quickly look at some white surface like pice of paper, your wall or something else. Try blinking while starring and you’ll get even stronger effect! What did you see?

  5. fab says:

    nothing much….. the same thing in colour i think
    but while staring at it it looked pretty cool: kinda 3D

    Vanna White??

  7. Lea says:

    wow, you don’t even have to look at paper, you can just close your eyes, it looks kind of like an eye burned into my vision.

  8. RKC says:

    Wow – cool.
    When I looked at the wall, I got a slightly pulsing after-image.
    But – when looking at the image on my monitor – if I looked at it obliquely, or via peripheal vision – the cross in the center would pulse.
    Thanks, by the way, for one of my favorite sites on the Web – and a place I visit to de-stress.

    A sunflower….

  10. jjones says:

  11. moi says:

    i think i c a japanese flag

  12. emily says:

    i got nothing

  13. ahmed says:

    when i was staring at it on the screen, it appeared to be fluctuating in diameter. that’s cooler than when i saw the negative against my white wall.

  14. wow.... says:

    um…. I saw a roulette wheel. And it was spinning.

  15. Pandas says:

    it was spinning?

  16. killer bees says:

    i agree with ahmed it was cooler on the screen when i was just staring at it

  17. The dark lord says:

    I saw the face of satan instructing me to eradicate his enemies systematically. weird.

  18. want 2 know says:

    wow! cool!but……………how does it work?

  19. -J- says:

    I interpreted it as a sunflower. “After Image” illusions are my favorite. Cheers!


  20. iamme says:

    Weird. The “flower” itself in the image doesn’t spin, but in the background I could see a very faint thin reddish-purplish spiral forming. And once I switched to a white background, I saw the negative for a split second, followed again by an image of a spiral or little concentric circles (again, very faint).

  21. Vlasdorian says:

    I saw a total of 3 things actually…

    1. as I stared at the image, it seemed to turn into a tunnel or “worm hole” kind of. Very 3D-ish

    2. when I looked at a white surface without blinking, the after image appeared to be a large circle (the outer edge of the original) with the inner part of te circle sorta spinning real fast.

    3. when I blinked, the after image was made much stronger and it looked more like a sunflower (yellow reverse of the original patern).

    this is the coolest one I’ve seen so far :)

  22. NotTellingYou says:

    Accually it looks kind of cool if you move your haed back from the screen: it looks like it moves or changes sizes.

  23. BillyB says:

    It also looks like it’s ‘bending’ when you have it in the middle of your monitor and scroll up and down slightly. Pretty cool.

  24. Merlijn says:

    Also, before you stared at it, if you move your head closer to the screen, it will grow.

  25. no likey name says:

    response guy, i posted replies on alot of these but they dont get on rrr

  26. Anonymous says:

  35. Shru says:

  36. Cal says:

  37. Anonymous says:

  38. Cornelius says:

    It’s a wheel with magic spokes people! Well, the afterimage that is. It consists of appearing/disappearing spokes that give out a spinning illusion. Neato!

  52. Vanth says:

    a white dot inside a square, inside the dot a ray pattern.

  53. Kelly says:

    Woooow, this was truly awesome. It worked for me!
    When I looked at a white paper, it looked like a vortex or something, with a hole in it that went from being a point to have almost the same diameter of the vortex!

  54. Captain Pasty says:

    Starts as a donut, then does the weird vortex in the middle, then becomes a spikey donut…
