That was a bit much for first thing on a Sunday morning. If you need me, I'll be in the kitchen, drinking grain alcohol neat until my brain recov

They did this on the show brain games on the national geographic channel.  If I remember correctly our brains focus on facial features like noses, eyes and cheekbones to recognize the people we see.  When those people are in our peripheral sight our brain makes those features overly pronounced in order to try to recognize who we think we see.

It's a pretty cool show.  I've been watching it with my seven year old and its really great to help teach kids how to approach the world in a slightly more rational manner.

For some reason, Patrick Stewart seems unaffected.

It was like watching people turn into anime.

Maybe that's why we can accept anime.

Part of our brains still see others like infants do:  Big heads, all eyes.

Because by that time, it's too late. You've seen everything.

Proof that celebrities are space aliens sent to enslave us.

GENIUS!

Some of the faces on the left have been shopped and are markedly more squared off than in real life. I assumed it makes the illusion more pronounced if the faces are slightly distorted to begin with. It's cheating - but the illusion is pretty cool all the same.

I'm not sure whether this makes Sean Penn even uglier or not.

Ah, so you saw it before it was cool. We're all so very impressed!

Well, considering that over 5 million other people also watched the video that was posted in May of last year, I don't really feel special.

Shocking illusion - Pretty celebrities turn ugly!

It's a peripheral thing, not a mingling thing; see what MaxSupernova said above. Cover up one of the sides and the affect still occurs.

Oh, wait, mingling before/after, not left right. Gotcha.

That was both weird and cool. Kinda like looking at the world through Picasso's eyes. Worked the same if I covered 1 eye. If I stared at one of the faces, the other face still looked weird. And Patrick Stewart's never changed.

I watched that again the other day, wondering just how farked up it must have seemed to older people when it first came out.

How would you like to see the celebrities the way they really are?
You're going to see flesh with a god's eyes.
Take a look...  These are your friends.

Now you gotta play both videos side by side with a cross in the middle to stare at.
 
2013-08-25 11:08:01 PM
It doesn't work for me.  I think it's because I don't have enough peripheral vision to allow me to see the faces.  Not everyone has the same amount of peripheral vision, and I think I have less than most.

Yeah, I saw it a couple of years ago too.  But I had forgotten about it, and if I had remembered it,  I probably couldn't have found it again, so it was pretty cool to see it again.

But you're right.  I should be smug and douchy about how cool it was for me to see it before these plebians. So smug and douchy that I feel the need to point out in a fark thread that I saw it 2 years ago just to make sure the plebes know about my douchy smugness.

It has to be a peripheral thing. I am centrally blind in one eye, and I could see the illusion. Was super cool!

Ooh, I done been told. Looks like you're a natural at the "douchy smugness" part too.

Watched it again with a post-it-note over the left set of images, and by the eleventh or so image, the faces are already grotesquely distorted.

It is also a persistence thing - the images are moving so quickly the distortions are being carried forward to the next image, increasing how grotesque they are.
