Triangle is Only in Your Mind


Hmm, apparently you weren’t as enthusiastic as I was concerning my previous post. I don’t see why, but I’m an individual, and you are the deciding jury. Those rating stars keep me informed about your likes and dislikes, handy – ayeh? Probably you won’t adore this one neither, but let me tell you that if you stop for second, and think this through the illusion you see today isn’t so bad. It’s obvious, those kiwis are sliced in a way to show a ghost triangle. Our brain is trained to automatically recognize simple objects such as: spheres, triangles and similar. This is why you aren’t really surprised when your brain recognizes the missing triangle. Well, if the brain wasn’t so developed all we would see is 3 slices of kiwi, and some missing parts on them. Think about it. BTW, I’m thrilled that more and more logo pictures appear in our comment section. Also, I found an awesome “adultish” optical illusion for tomorrow… something simmilar to this. Stay tuned!

    I don’t care if the triangle is in my mind just as long as the kiwi fruit ends up in my salad. Mmmm.

    This is a bit more creative. It actually made me pause and consider…

  • Brian

  • Nick

    Great one today.
    I like these, simple and effective.
    It took me a few seconds to recognise the triangle but once I looked closely it came to me. (always the simple ones get me)

  • Libiom

    This is classic gestalt psychology, in which the total effect of an image is greater than the sum of its parts.

  • Lame! =P

  • Facebook User

    Yes, Triangle is just a construction of the brain.
    By the way, kiwis too :)

  • I love it! I actually thought there was a triangle there when I first looked at it. You’re the best! Keep up the great work!!

  • Joanna

    Simplicity is good.

  • Bodhi Alarcon

  • Nicholas

    Woot 1st comment!!!!I see three pacman in there.p.s AND A TRIANGLE!!

  • Facebook User

    Well I don’t believe you assumed right Vurdlak, this one has nothing to do with yesterdays. First, it is such a beautiful picture and its amazing how the first thing I always see is a triangle even knowing there really isn’t any.

  • MS

    It’s obvious.

  • Jamontre Archie

    cool but not one of the best illusions

  • LuckyMcPixie

    That was cute I liked it although it took me a min or two. Trying to figure out a puzzle at 2am maybe not the smartest idea…

  • Tracy Losche Harder

    That’s pretty clever!! I like it!

  • I love this one and I can’t wait for tomorrow’s illusion. Wonder what it’ll be…

  • nice one! like it.

  • dant

  • Flor

    Kiwi looks good, lots of vitamin c:)

  • josh

    cool i think it’s basic but quite interesting

  • Fradley Garner

    Dear Mr. Vurdiak (is that your name?) –

    Re the three kiwis — the top and right-hand ones are partly shadowed, so the triangle is reinforced. Indeed we do see (perceive) it, as we also see three individual triangles if we view the three fruit slices singly. So what’s the big deal?

    Keep up your daily good work — your viewers enjoy it!

  • Fradley Garner

    Awaiting moderation? What does that mean?
    I have to moderate it? fG

  • gennia11

    Nice illusion! Isn’t psychology cool? First?

    (Sorry for my bad english…)

  • aimi

    YAY first post

  • I know this one!!! Its one of those psychological optical illusions!!! yay me!

  • lisa

    hmmm… very simple illusion

  • Crarteg

    not bad, not bad. it is kinda cool

  • Pete Hat

    i like it, nice n simple and obviously not photoshopped.

  • Spider

    Running out of good ones, Vurdlak? LOL… no, it’s okay, it’s just too simple, my opinion.

  • Detective Kitty

    On the contrary, the simplicity of this illusion makes it much worthy for us, “the Jury” to adore. If anything the first thing you noticed would be the triangle but our well developed brains would in no time figure out the solution. Still I’m rating this a four out of five…

  • A great simple Illusion :O)

  • Dolphin

    I can make the triangle appear and dissapear. :D

  • Sherk

    I disagree with the validity of the illusion.
    The area within the kiwis has been clearly whitened so that it stands out ; therefore, the triangle really does exist?
    If you set this up yourself on a consistently coloured surface, it wouldn’t be quite as effective!

    • A Smartass Girl

      The light is directly overhead. But, I see why you would say that.

  • Stupid

    these kiwis are floating! haha

  • the man

    yes i knwo the triangel is delicious eeee….
    i mean in my mind

  • Anonymus

    * sarcasism * what triangle?! i dont see a triangle?! where is the triangle?!

  • Lio

    I don’t see a triangle, I see pacman shaped kiwis :D
