I have got a feeling this optical illusion might just blow your mind. We have put three clusters of circling balls above, but can you tell me how many of the three are going in the same direction? If you stare at the center yellow spot of the top left cluster they all seem to be going the same way, but not if you look at the other yellow spots. Let me know what you think in the comments.
You might have seen a similar illusion with our Optical Spy Owl - both modified from an unknown image.
Hello guys, I've got a great old favorite illusion for you today. Take a look at the Optical Spy Archway. Someone has put a post right in front of it, but look at the top of the arch, will the two sides join at the top or not? You can click on the picture to find out. But before you click let us know what you think is going on here in the comments, we would love to hear from you.
We would also love to see any of your illusions or strange photos, you can upload these to us here. We look forward to hearing from you. - Spyman

Well actually a dark Zebra. Just stare at the center spot until the countdown finishes and then when the black shroud is lifted from the the left hand side of the picture the right hand side seems to get darker.

These two cars look completely different sizes because your eyes see the 3D perspective you would normally associate with a 2D photograph. But the actual 2D size here is exactly the same. Original image source unknown.

As an update to our grid illusion we have designed the same grid with dots. The only difference between the checker boards are the dots, the red and black squares are always the same.
