World Water Day Optical Illusion


Whooooah, I have an incredible news to share with you today! Have you by any accident heard of the almighty web search giant, Yahoo? Off course you have! Well, as it may happen, yesterday Yahoo has featured, and recommended Mighty Optical Illusions RSS Feed to all of it’s users across the globe! Yes, you read it right. Our little’o blog was mentioned as a daily recommendation inside My Yahoo start page of every Yahoo user in the world. If you’re quick, you may still catch it. My Yahoo is a service simmilar to Google homepage (iGoogle), where you can add all kinds of stuff, including widgets, RSS feeds, games etc. Millions of web surfers use it as their surfing starting point. You can imagine how all this positively influenced our visitor count. If you are interested, you can read more about this here. Just let me know when you’re finished, so we can proceed with our latest illusion…

Today’s post is dedicated to the “World Water Day“. Even though this event is celebrated on March, 22nd of each year, I still believe we aren’t too late to mention it. Apparently, Tribuna de Minas used a well known optical illusion floating letters pattern, and created what seems a floating water effect inside of it’s World Water Day poster. I love optical illusion patterns inside adverts! There are many more from where this came from, so prepare to be bombed with them in the following days. When you open the below image in a new window (full size), you will experience the effect in its full capacity. Don’t be fooled. The image you see is static – it’s your eyes and brain that make it flow!

    Tip: Don’t look directly at it, look at the first comment and well it’s pretty cool.

  • aditya

    In the image if you look at the top left corner, then it’s opposite (bottom right) look depressed. :) similarily with all other corners. If you move your eyes slowly from one corner to other, the words in the middle appear to get ripples and flow

  • aditya

    also if you scroll up and down the image , the letters ‘ H2O ‘ seem to turn. and if you stare at the image for 30 seconds there seem to impression on the middle part of the image. And i’m absolutely right…..HeHe

    I had scrolled down a little and was reading last paragraph prior to looking at the illusion. Was very difficult to concentrate on the words when my peripheral vision was picking up movement! Thats excellent.
