Anomalous Motion Optical Illusion


Sometimes when I’m forced to repeat myself (as it happens there is only a limited number of illusory effects and patterns out there), at least I try to wait before I find the next best thing. As our “Seemingly Animated” category is among the most popular ones, it wasn’t easy to find an illusion that could match or even beat our previous champ. Yet I think I have managed to do this with today’s “Anomalous Motion” illusion. What do you think of it? Credit goes to G. Sarcone, the author who created this.

    I like the previous champ better. The large size of the “beans” makes the movement more intense.

    Wow! thats so cool. i love how it always moves. no matter what way i look at it the genius of this illusion beats me. thanks G.Sarcone for making my day!

    I really like this one. It has motion. It has a really strong 3D effect as well. If you stare a while at the statue, it starts popping out of the screen.

    I have 3D glasses at home. I thought I would try wearing them since the center photo seems to be in 3D. The center photo does pop, but interestingly, the motion stops when looked at through 3D glasses.

    crazy how the circles stop moving if you stare at them :->

  • I agree: this is one of the most “mobile” illusions ever. The Buddha in the middle made me laugh though. Maximum respect to Buddha, of course, the fact the author decided to put him there is what I find to be hilarious.

    Finally, proof that the Buddha is a very spiritual being.
