Shake Your Head to Reveal the Optical Illusion


Sunday is a day that is bittersweet. I mean, you have the day off of work, which is really cool, but it sucks, because you know that tomorrow you’re going to be back at the office. Either way, I think you should enjoy the day and I’m going to help you do that with today’s amazing optical illusion. It’s rare that I come across an optical illusion that is just completely different and out of the norm. Well, today, I have an optical illusion that’s very different and I’m super stoked to share it with all of you. The object of this optical illusion is to stare at the image and shake your head back and forth until you see a picture appear. Sounds really cool, doesn’t it? Are you ready to give it a shot? If so, scroll down right now and give it a shot!

    I love it!

    I am still wondering how it is made.

  • Popay

    It is a dog with big ears or a rabit.Very nice.It also works ,without shaking your head, if you put some distance between you and the laptop.Thanks for your efforts…Keep them comming :)

  • Might be a yellow duck or bird. But it’s really hardly viewable, crazy idea however!

  • Laura

    OMG, I saw Pikachu! awesome illusion.

  • I couldn’t see the image by “shaking” my head. However, I edited the pic a little bit, [img][/img]
    And it appears to be Pikachu!

  • Salvatore

    A dog?

  • Howard Brazee

    Could you give us a clue?

    I think I saw Pikachu….?

  • Carl Fuglein

    I think I saw a bunny, but who knows.

    And how come I can’t ever see the comments anymore?

  • Kiwibot

    I struggled with this, until I took my glasses off. Probably a reflection on my poor eyesight, but the image was visible even with my head still. I have seen this type of image before , but only black and white, so was impressed that this was in colour even though the interference pattern appears monochrome.

  • Michael Jones

    i think i saw some ears?

  • hadsil

    Couldn’t get a complete picture. Either it’s a chihuahua or Pikachu.

  • James Howde

    If the image is a close up of some denim I saw it fine even without shaking my head – otherwise nothing.

    It’s probably Marilyn Monroe or a dolphin, these kind of things usually are.

  • Guy

    A rabbit? – maybe a dog?

  • Pikachu :-)

  • Ramyak Rohan Mohanty

    It’s Pikachu!!!!!!

  • Hypersapien

    It’s not too hard to see even without shaking your head.

  • A kitten? Woah, my head hurts now!

  • Dwight

    It is picture of a greyhound.

  • Sheryl

    It was faint, but I think I saw a rabbit. Pretty interesting illusion.

  • Micah

    That was the coolest illusion I’ve seen on this site in a long time. Oddly enough the larger the image the harder it is to see.

    If you reduce the image to 50% of it’s original size you can see it without shaking your head :)

    Image is of Pikachu as far as I can tell.


    I saw a rabbit

  • Pikachu i think or maybe i m an anime watcher so m seeing it!!!!

  • Steve


    Pikachu plus a headache?

    Yes, that’s it. Pikachu plus a headache. When it says “shake,” it means SHAKE!

  • Jens Hykkelbjerg

    One word: pikawow

  • Rabbit

    Squint your eyes up. How do you get Pikachu on a bus? Pokemon! How can you tell if there is a Pokemon under your bed? He’ll Pikachu!

  • colbycfobrien

    It helps me to lean back, then I can clearly see it’s Pikachu…

  • Pharmboy

    Pikachu! I was actually able to see it most clearly when I took off my glasses, so it was out of focus.

  • Omega

    I can see it by scrolling the page up and down slowly.

  • Mevin1

    It’s easier to see if you just unfocus your eyes, or focus on a point outside the box, or if you shrink the image.
