10 Mind Blowing Optical Illusions

(dramatic music) 10 Mind-Blowing optical illusions Flat third dimension. Nothing appears abnormal about this Rubik’s Cube until you realize it is a two-dimensional image. This illusion is created with a distorted perspective of an image that requires to be viewed at a specific vantage point to create the 3D effect. This is the same method used in the very popular 3D sidewalk art The Ames room. The Ames room illusion creates a cartoonish and very intriguing effect of drastic size differences between people and objects, by tricking your depth perception within a regular shaped room. The walls, ceiling, and floor align in a way that will appear normal at just the right angle. This causes everything else in the room to appear to warp in size. Following eyes. Here is a simple but very effective illusion that makes it look like these little guys are watching you. This is done by manipulating the way you see perspective, and the brain’s natural ability to pick out faces and patterns. The head is actually concave, and this sets up a contradiction in your brain to make it look like it’s turning to follow you. The dress. Whether you see black and blue, or white and gold, this dress has caused debate and confusion. Though the dress is indeed black and blue, it has become a popular example of color constancy. Depending on individual perception, as well as current room lighting – the dress can be seen as either black and blue, or white and gold. Circle illusion. Is easy to assume that these dots are moving in a circular pattern, however, they are not. Each dot is traveling in a straight line while on its own path from one end of the circle to the other. By adding each dot one by one you can see the illusion come into place Motion illusions. These images are not animated but they appear to be moving due to the cognitive effects of interacting color contrasts, and shape positioning. If you’re feeling skeptical -pause this video and watch as these images continue to wave, twist, and pulse. Animation illusion. This clever and old-timey technique creates a multiple frame animation on a single sheet of paper. By manipulating the mind and eye, these still images come to life using a simple graded card. Drop-off room. This 3D painted room is enough to trigger one’s acrophobia, as it seems to be a massive drop-off. This painting was created by a master of Optical illusions – Regina Silviera whose work often contains a larger than life bent reality. Yes/no. Artist Markus Raetz specializes in optical illusions with his mind-manipulating 3D creations. A prime example of his work is this sculpture of the word yes that can be read from one angle. but moved to another angle – and it morphs into the word no. Backwards chair. This chair appears as normal as a chair can be at first glance, but just wait until this man has a seat. It might feel surreal at first but this chair is actually built in a warped and irregular way, that makes it look like it is facing one way but in fact it is facing the other way. (dramatic music)
