Cool Optical Illusion

    I found this one to be more interesting than most because of counter rotation.

    That was awesome, zoobyshoe. I wonder why it made me laugh, though...I was really laughing hysterically at the things, and there was nothing really funny about it.

    Could be cause you realize how funny you must look doing it.

    lol

    That is a great illusion though. Probably the best I've seen so far, since it doesn't require you to stare at a fixed point for several minutes to fatigue your retinal neurons before the illusion can happen. (That part is always a bit of a nuisance.)

    I think we need to talk about this.

    What else do you laugh at Mentat?

    Yeah, I don't think I've seen one like this before that moves in respose to the viewer's motion.

    Imagine if someone made a giant one and put it at the end of a long hall where people had to walk a long way toward it.

    That'd be great! You could paint the center a bright color to attract people's attention. This absolutely needs to be done. You could set up a hidden camera in the hall to get people's reactions. Classic.

    I think you'd end up with alot of people going into some kind of total hypnotic fixation. You'd have to mount it on foam rubber; there'd be those who keep walking till they slam right into it.

    That one optical illusion about the balcony and the guy climbing it is a real melon-scratcher.
