Different Spiral Optical Illusion


I love it when I get hold of an optical illusion that really blows your mind. That’s exactly what happened with the illusion that I’m going to post up today, because it completely fooled me the very first time I ever looked at it. I was sitting here, looking at the illusion, and I was impressed with the nice spiral effect it gives off. Keep in mind, I’m one of those people that just loves to stare at cool, trippy optical illusion.

After I stared at the image for a little while I noticed that this wasn’t your typical spiral optical illusion, but it was actually something very different that I noticed. I can guarantee you that the artist of this optical illusion tricked a lot of people with this one, because it’s a very subtle change to an old trick that many people won’t even notice, because we’re all so used to seeing so many of these spiral illusion. Check out the illusion below and see if you can figure out what I’m talking. What’s different about this spiral optical illusion?

The illusion above puts off a spiral effect, but it’s not actually a spiral at all. The lines are actually a bunch of different circles that have been made in different sizes that give off a spiral effect.

    Great illusion. But your answer James Dean does not make sense. You ask what is different about this spiral illusion. But you don’t say how it is different. Only that it is the same old version.

    So, how is it different from all other spiral illusions that are concentric circles?

    • James Dean

      Because a spiral is a singular line.
