  • 10 Mind-Blowing optical illusions
  • Flat third dimension.
  • Nothing appears abnormal about this Rubik's Cube until you realize it is a
  • two-dimensional image. This illusion is created with a distorted perspective of an image that requires to be
  • viewed at a specific vantage point to create the 3D effect.
  • This is the same method used in the very popular 3D sidewalk art
  • The Ames room.
  • The Ames room illusion creates a cartoonish and very intriguing effect of drastic size differences between people and
  • objects, by tricking your depth perception within a regular shaped room. The walls,
  • ceiling, and floor align in a way that will appear normal at just the right angle.
  • This causes everything else in the room to appear to warp in size.
  • Following eyes.
  • Here is a simple but very effective illusion that makes it look like these little guys are watching you.
  • This is done by manipulating the way you see perspective, and the brain's natural ability to pick out faces and patterns.
  • The head is actually concave, and this sets up a contradiction in your brain to make it look like it's turning to follow you.
  • The dress.
  • Whether you see black and blue, or white and gold, this dress has caused debate and confusion.
  • Though the dress is indeed black and blue, it has become a popular example of color constancy.
  • Depending on individual perception, as well as current room lighting - the dress can be seen as either black and blue, or white and gold.
  • Circle illusion.
  • Is easy to assume that these dots are moving in a circular pattern, however,
  • they are not. Each dot is traveling in a straight line while on its own path from one end of the circle to the other.
  • By adding each dot one by one you can see the illusion come into place
  • Motion illusions.
  • These images are not animated
  • but they appear to be moving due to the cognitive effects of
  • interacting color contrasts, and shape positioning. If you're feeling skeptical -pause this video and watch as these images
  • continue to wave, twist, and pulse.
  • Animation illusion.
  • This clever and old-timey technique creates a multiple frame animation on a single sheet of paper.
  • By manipulating the mind and eye, these still images come to life using a simple graded card.
  • Drop-off room.
  • This 3D painted room is enough to trigger one's acrophobia, as it seems to be a massive drop-off.
  • This painting was created by a master of Optical illusions - Regina
  • Silviera whose work often contains a larger than life bent reality.
  • Yes/no.
  • Artist Markus Raetz specializes in optical illusions with his mind-manipulating 3D creations.
  • A prime example of his work is this sculpture of the word yes that can be read from one angle.
  • but moved to another angle - and it morphs into the word no.
  • Backwards chair.
  • This chair appears as normal as a chair can be at first glance,
  • but just wait until this man has a seat. It might feel surreal at first
  • but this chair is actually built in a warped and irregular way, that makes it look like it is facing one way
  • but in fact it is facing the other way.

One of the most fascinating organs in our body is the human brain. You could say that it is central control, or headquarters for our body. Without our brain, we are not alive. The brain is where our consciousness lives and our memories are preserved. If we are considered “brain dead”, then the plug gets pulled on our life support. It is a complex organ of fatty tissue, and the brain helps us process different kinds of information through our five sense. Using our nose, the brain can tell us whether we are experiencing a pleasant smell or something foul. With our ears, the brain can help us process the noises we are hearing and be able to tell the difference from language to noises. With our mouth, the brain helps us figure out whether the food we are eating is good for us and not poisonous. Finally, with our eyes, the brain helps us process the information we are seeing visually. Our brain and our eyes have a beautiful relationship by letting us see colors, nature, people, and more, along with associate these visions with emotions. With such wondrous capabilities, it can be easy to just assume and trust that what our eyes are telling us is true. Well, not exactly.
In the last several centuries, optical illusions have been playing tricks with our brain and causing us to question what is real and what is fiction. Optical illusions can be created by Mother Nature, or they can be manmade, thus creating an entire art dedication to optical illusions and messing with our brain and everything that we know about the world around us. With the innovation and evolution of optical illusions, we are now getting confused more often than ever before! People have even dedicated their lives and support themselves from creating their own optical illusions. These artists even get a kick from us stepping on their painting and thinking that we are about to descend into a multiple story fall, but instead, our foot remains on solid ground.
This video has ten of the most mind blowing optical illusions. They are so crazy that you would think that they were simply a trick of the camera or computer. What makes these optical illusions extra special is the fact that they play with your perception using colors, angles, light, shapes, sizes, and more. Our eyes have been conditioned and groomed to see certain things by the way the light hits an object, or by the way and angle is seen by our eyes. Reality can be manipulated so many ways by a simple tilt of the head or a beam of light, or a splash of color. By breaking down why you are seeing the optical illusion in the first place, we can start descending upon the bridge of understanding. Probably one of the most unsettling things about optical illusions is that the seed of doubt can bleed over to our normal everyday lives and cause us to question everything by just looking outside.
