Optical Illusion

A couple of months back when a friend by the name of Sha introduced me to the wonder of optical Illusion, which for me is an Art. You'll get amazed with its complexity and simplicity at the same time. Here are some, which catched my attention.

First cover the upper half of the picture with your palm, and you'll automatically assume that the window corner of this building is converx (bulged out). Now try covering the lower half of the photo, and you will see the inner corner of the building (concave this time).

If you saw only the shadow, you'd thought there is a young couple sitting, and supporting each other's back . The amazing part is there is no couple, just a pile of garbage.

Is it a profile of a young and beautiful lady, or do you see an old wich with huge and ugly nose?

Is this guy drowning, or is he safe? It depends on how you see the image, and the way it is rotated. For example, many of you will first presume this guy is drowning and screaming for help, but when the image is rotated (jump inside this article to see the 2nd picture), you will see that he is actually safe.

the guy appear he's wearing no head, but also appears that plate he is carrying, is preparing to cut him in two.

The image is titled "Momentarily headless". The gymnist Katherine Coronel of Venezuela performs her routine during the rhythmic gymnastics competition at the 20th Juegos Deportivos Centroamericanos y del Caribe in Cartagena, in Colombia.

This Optical Illusion is really neat. Stare at the black dot for 30 seconds, and you'll see the haze start to disappear.

move away from your screen (or narrow your eyes) until you see a portrait of famous girl done by genius Leonardo Da Vinci.

Some more...

are they moving?????

Funny Optical Illusions

where is that coming from?!?!?

eye examination

Increase Distance from Chart untill you find it readable

eye to brain coordination

Read out loud the text inside the triangle below:
It's more than likely you said, "A bird in the bush". If this IS what YOU said, then you failed to see that the word THE is repeated twice inside this triangle!

color test

Look at the chart below and quickly say the color, not the word. This prooves how our brain uses each side of the brain for different action: your right side of the brain want's you to say the color, but the left side insists on reading the word
