Take a look at this vintage animation. Now try and follow the spiral around and around down into the middle. Not easy.
We have hidden a number of faces in this picture of stones. But how many are there? Good hunting.
Here's a great compilation of video illusions we thought you might like.
It is amazing how easy it is to fool us, just look at the top picture here, you would think it was a real vintage photo or at lease a picture from a movie or TV series. But when you look at the bottom picture and realise it's a mashup of the very small and a real background, it is quite astonishing.
Look carefully at the animation below. First look at all six balls, they are jumping left and right the same. Now just look solely at the top three balls, they seem to be all moving sideways back and forth together. Now look only at the bottom three, its not the same. It looks like the first ball is jumping from one end to the other and back again. Cool eh?
If you look at this flash animation for a few seconds you will see the two balls rotating around the Optical Spy logo. But are they bouncing off each other or crossing each other? If you stare long enough you should also see a circle appear.
A stunning portrait of Charles Darwin by David Revoy that pays homage to Darwin's contributions to evolutionary theory, created using different animal and plant species.
This illusion looks like there are black diagonal lines running from the bottom left to the top right, but there are not any black diagonals. We also noticed that the red lines seem to be different shades where in fact they are the same color throughout.
