Twirly, shmirly.

This is hands down the most amazing illusion ever. Guranteed to blow your mind. And yes, your monitor is working.

scratchee, sorry dude, the dragon is way crazier.

I don't know, mister13, the dragon is pretty cool...I just emailed it to myself for building at work tomorrow. But the checkerboard just completely defies all attempts to "see through it."

WOW, for like 5 seconds, I was totally shocked that pic slipped through, then my brain switched back from perv and I could tell what it really was.

After 3 years doing 3d graphics work, these no longer all work. I'd say that about 3/4 of them work on the "untrained eye" but cease to work on a trained eye.

For the most part it's the static field effect ones that don't work. Ones that involve moving your eyes still seem to work because they're based off cone-more' on the retina

shanrick that gif is farkin insane. I opened it in animation shop just to be sure it was legit and it is, nothing but the circle of pink dots with 1 taken out each frame so it seems to rotate around. But that is farkin insane with the green dot and then all the pink dissapearing. Just goes to show you if you stare at anything long enough maybe you will see the face of god.

DoorFrame: It's an awesome thing to have on the desk.

Yep. It's been there for a year now. I try remember to look at it as I leave the room. Gives me a chuckle. Also got the almond-illusion printed out.

I've seen all these links before, but still enjoy them immensely. DaJeseus' http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/index.html is probably the best, tho

Those were cool, but 3/4 of them were the same thing.

Dear Sirs,

There is a need for trying to explain why my eyes are crosseyed. This is not a pleasant feeling.

Sincerely,

Unorigional that freaks me out.

Here's another cool one. Stare at the black dot in the center. Soon, all of the colors will disappear.
