Cruising Motorcycle Optical Illusion


This interesting looping animation is consisted of only three frames. It creates an interesting illusion of fluid motion. Can you see the motorcycle cruising continuously in up-street direction?

If you concentrate and focus solely on the street in front of the bike, the illusion becomes clear. Be sure to open the animation in full size for even better experience!

    Flashing?? First response????

  • Annie

    Not much chance of an accdent there !

  • eric

    I just see it jerking back and forth. Maybe if there weren’t other trees in the background which never get closer, it might work better.

  • Max

    No. I’m only retching and that’s not an illusion!

  • Halidom

    It’s just the same photo and the flickering that gives it the impression of motion.

  • Ross

    This just makes my eyes hurt.

  • Steve

    Certainly gets a lot of points for being extremely irritating!

  • Madelonetjj

    Uh, it’s actually… Not all that successful because I think it’s glitching a gray frame? It really just gives me a headache, not really any illussions to be found here.

    Thanks for the Cruising Motorcycle illusion.
    I have what I think is a “better” illustration of this … albeit using 4 frames, rather than your three!
    If you give me an email address, Ill send it to you …. if this dropbox link doesn’t work:


    PS: If you manage to download and run the .mov file, the trick is to run it in Loop mode.

    Can you hurry up and change this illusion? As cool as it is, it gives me a headache as soon as I go to my home page.

  • Nancy

    My homepage shows a small photo of the illusions. The cruising motorcycle was horrible. On my homepage the blinking photo really got irritating. I usually love your optical illusions, but this one was the pits because I couldn’t get rid of it until you changed it. I really am a fan but this one was a loser. :)

    Nope all this does is blink and hurt my eyes…

  • Ko

    Nothing; just annoying. My eyes aren’t so easily fooled.

    Nope . . . I can only see it as three repeating frames. The grey frame is too clearly a looping point, and the shaft of light across the road keeps the illusion from working.

  • Lil Bit

    The motor cycle is not moving.

  • Jim

    The blinking motorcycle optical illusion is highly annoying. That constant blinking drives me nuts. I cannot stand it. Could just show one frame with a link? Than way I can turn the blinking off.

  • Glenn Miles

    Could you change to the next illusion. I’m having epileptic seizures looking down the row of trees from the motor cycle.

  • Vincent

    I feel dizzy…

  • erin8ball

    XD cool!

  • Lil Bit

    This could be a picture with a strob light

  • Don in Alabama

    If it didn’t flash, it might work, otherwise it’s just annoying. No movement at all.

  • Annie

    I’d have to say that it’s a really annoying one to have on the screen & clever as it is, I’ll be glad when it’s gone.

  • Annie

    HELP !Please change it, after three days it’s driving me mad as it’s impossible to ignore on the screen.
