Fun: Optical Illusions

January 19th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

[Optical Illusion]I came across this collection of optical illusions via A Girl’s Gotta Blog and have had a little bit of fun with them.

They’ve got (in the little flash presentation) the “count the black dots” illusion: there aren’t any black dots (only white ones) on the grid, but the eye is confused by the grey bars and the black squares, a picture of a face with the word “LIAR” hidden on it, a many legged elephant, the musician and the face illusion, the spiral confusion one and many others.

Take a look and have some fun. I warn you know, they can cause you to see things that aren’t necessarily there (like the black dots…)

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
