How Does Telvision Work?


Have you ever noticed, that when you come too close to your TV set and stare, how the image infact is made of thousands of tiny spots? It’s pixels to be precise, and in a same way your computer image is made. See the image below? Now step back from your monitor, and move your head further away until you see a face. If you stare at it long enough, you will see full, unaired episode of Futurama from last 5th season…. Nah, kiddin’ about this last part, but you’ll stil be able to see something. Comment your findings. Also check “Jesus Illusion no.2”.

    Also try moving your head from left to right (like cradle) and then you can see the face from smaller distance (because your eyes cant focus the image). Also try narrowing your eyes for stronger effect.

But after looking at the other comments, I started to see obi-wan Kenobi, maybe Jon from Garfield but definitly not a girl! lol thanks for all the illusions!!!

  • Little Old Me

      That’s what I thought, too! Which is odd, since I don’t *really* know what he looks like. I haven’t seen that show since kindergarten…


  • Maddie

    I definitely saw a clown. If you put your face right up to the screen so that the image becomes blurred together, and then move back, you might see a clown. It was slightly tilted left.

  • Lee

    it looks like a black man with a mustache pointing his head down a bit and looking straight at you.

  • Jordyn Puck

    Definently Obi Wan Kenobi :)

  • espira

    It looks like how Drew Peterson envisions himself upon being released from jail for lack of evidence in killing his 3rd and 4th wives.

  • cheychey

    all these ppl see different things but really what is it? oya i thought it was bill clinton then billy mays(R.I.P)

  • akjdhf

    a happy white guy with a short beard

  • Natalie

    ermmm i didnt really see anything… just a kinda red blob in the middle :S

  • AzISeeIt

    It’s either Kenny Rogers (but younger) or Rob Reiner (but thinner.)

    I managed to manipulate a copy of this so the face is “fairly” clearly visible and was going to put it on Facebook so whoever wanted could go see it, but I’ll be damned if I can figure out how to share photos with Facebook. Thing is, I HATE FACEBOOK so you’ll just have to keep working on the image yourselves. Sorry.

    BTW Richard Dreyfuss was a reasonable suggestion, too. As was Santa Claus, if the beard were longer. (Shiny cheeks and a rather thick, shiny lower lip.)

    Or, maybe it isn’t any particular celebrity, just some happy older guy with receding hair and a short white beard and moustache? Will we ever know for sure?
