10 Brain Hurting Optical Illusions

This bloody dress debate has everyone scratching their heads. Here are more optical illusions that will make you LOSE YOUR CONCEPT OF LIFE!


We recently stumbled across a photo of a dress, that caused worldwide arguments on whether its ‘white & gold’ or ‘blue & black’ (its totally blue and black BTW) [See it here].

Our whole concept of colour changed. Why was it that people could see 4 totally differing colours [ANSWER]

Here are 10 other Illusions that made our brain hurt.

THE DRESS:

Randall Munroe made this image to explain to us that it's all about the lighting and the colours in our Peripheral vision. Both of the dresses in this image are the same colour.

THE SCROLLING IMAGE

Scroll up and down on this image and it moves!

THE SAME SIZE

What if I told you the orange circles were the same size!

MOVING BUT NOT

This image apears to move. This illusion makes our brain hurt!

 

 

IN THE SHADOWS

A and B are both the same colour! Seriously!

 

IS IT A DUCK OR A RABBIT?

A good one to ask you friends. This illusion is an oldie but a goodie. I see a rabbit!

PINK AND RED

This illusion is similar to the dress debate. It all depends on the colours around it as to what your brain perceives. The only two colours in this photo are pink and green.

 

LEGS NOT THERE

The legs on this elephant hurt my eyes.

 

SOLID BAR

The bar in this photo is one solid colour. We have removed the top half of this image to make it easier for your brain to see that it is. (make sure the original image is off your screen)

FULL CIRCLE

This isn't a sprial. It is four perfect circles.
