Looks like the background is spinning around a circle, but both are staying completely still.
Your eyes will keep jumping to the spinning sunbursts of seeds – even though they’re all staying still.
Lose your focus a bit (seriously – try to go a little cross-eyed) and you’ll spot a secret message hiding in the black dots.
Take a closer look, though, and the words will disappear from sight.
Can you figure out which of these windows is bigger?
Not only are they the exact same size, but their tops and bottoms are also directly in line with each other.
Talk about a new perspective.
Is the smallest point of this black and white illusion pointing in or sticking out?
It’s anyone’s guess.
An oldie but goodie. Your brain thinks there’s a black circle inside each white one – until you focus on that white circle.
Then you realise it was never there at all.
When your eyes dart to one seemingly spinning circle, the others around them appear to start rotating.
Your eyes don’t know where to look!
Which blue dot is bigger: the one on the left or the one on the right?
Good for you if you guessed the same size!
The left just looks smaller compared to the big circles and empty space around it.
At first glance, the four diamonds in this picture pop right out.
But look closer – there’s not a single line creating those shapes.
The contrast between the black and white makes your brain assume they exist.
Optical illusions like this will leave you dazed and confused.
The colours seem to be swirling around, even though it’s a still image.
Which horizontal line is shorter: the top or the bottom?
Trick question – they’re the same size, even though your mind perceives the one with outward wings to be longer.
