Wheel Of Fortune

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?

  1. 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.


  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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 :)

  5. 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.

  6. its following me everywhere i look !!! arrrrrgh get it away !

    stare directly at the cross in the middle for a long time…. then look away anywhere….it follows you

  7. 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!

  8. try staring at the center then moving your head back and forth to produce a movement affect…’


  9. Its weird i will stare at the image for awhile and when i look at my wall it was like the image but the image was darkish spinning

  10. 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!

  11. DAMN! i lookd at the paper nd it was just the same thing on the screen but now i cant get the pic out of my eyes! it was so bright!

  12. It worked :D
    if you stare at it for 30 secconds and then see at a white thing with rapidly blinking you’ll clearly see this diagram…

    wish i had something like this for Preparing my exams :P lol…
