Alfred Hitchcock: Vertigo Illusion


Miwa Miwa created this cool optical illusion. He gave us premission to show it, so here it is! If you concentrate on the person figure in the middle of the vertigo, you’ll get an impression everything arround him is spinning, and the person appears falling. Really nice illusion, I must say.

  • sbredflag

    If you scroll up and down while staring at it, it works better.

  • Blub

  • Broccoli

  • melly

  • rihanna

    i agree wit blub move ure hed back an forth ive seen one similar

  • Rachael

    I don’t think it works with me right. All I see are circles with a guy in the middle. And when I move my head it doesn’t work. Does it have to do with me having perfect eye sight?

  • killer bees


  • Priyal

  • I know!!!!!

    I know how to make him fall!

  • 2seeme

  • loser

    not geting anything*keeps trying…nope nothing

  • RIT

    This doesn’t make any sense to me, the only thing that happens is when I look at the guy in the middle the lines move but then when I look at the lines they stop moving…I don’t see no guy moving

  • Wilton

    Is something wrong???

    Cuz it ain’t happening to me! I can’t see moving things! I can’t see a falling guy!


  • sour-sugar

    Nothing is moving when I look at it

  • MrPages

    The instructions are wrong.

    Look at the guy in the center, but then move your head towards and away from the monitor.

  • Woo

    LOL, you don’t have to concentrate on anything to get it to work…..just move your head towards and away from the image. ;-)


  • Dick

    WOW! This picture is actually moving!

  • Mango

    nope…nothing…absolute nada. Shame. I’m sure it would be cool if I could make it work.

  • cheese

    i see the spinning but not the falling

    I think you have to look at the illusion as a whole. For me the circles spin inward, so the whole damn thing seems to fall with the man. Nicely done.

    that’s funny.. when I read the text above the circles seem to move, but if i stare at the guy in the middle as the text tels me to, it’s just a steady image.. funny, huh?

  • the technogirl

    wtfdtigo? I cant see anything! Does it have to do with my POOR eyesight, like Rachael with her perfect eyesight? /(`.’)\ Anyways, if you move the cursor in circles, on the image, it looks as if the circles are expanding and contracting, forcing the guy down.

    Cool but he isnt falling… he?

  • Claudio

    when you look at the person, than go with your head from back to forward, then you see it all spinning

    I’m sorry for my bad English, I come from the Netherlands..

  • Cool

  • Matthew Brown
