Eye-Twisting Moments of Strange Perspective

The world isn't always straight forward. Sometimes you're looking at it from the side, or some other angle that obscures your view of someone's face. It's these illusions of eye-defying double-takery that can make us go "waaahhh" while trying to figure out if that's a dog or a boat. Foreground be damned, doubletake inducing photos of skewed perspective are here to stay.

Take a look at this picture and see if you can figure out who's hugging who. HOW DID THE GUY IN FRONT GET HIS FEET TO FACE BACKWARDS???!?!

People on the internet are freaking out about this optical illusion. The prevailing theory is that it just looks like that because the guy in front is wearing athletic shorts that are white on the inside and black (or dark blue) on the sides.

Mind F*ck of The Day: This Test Will Make Your Brain See Color in a Fully Black-and-White Photograph

Our brains are weird.

In a new BBC Four series, Colour: The Spectrum of Science, researchers show how the human brain is controlled by perception.

By watching the video below and staring at the blue dot in the center of the screen, a full black-and-white photograph will turn into full color.

It's science, man!

IFL Science explains:

It's all to do with our cone cells, one of the two types of photoreceptors within our eye's retina, which are responsible for color vision. We have three types of cones, which are sensitive to blue, green or red wavelengths of light. When we're exposed to a lot of one color, that particular type of cone gets overstimulated and becomes "tired" and unresponsive. This leaves you temporarily with the use of only your other two types of cone, which show the opposing "complementary" color (i.e red versus green and blue versus yellow). After a few seconds, the cones "recharge" and you're able to perceive that color again.

So...blue and black OR white and gold?

A shadow creates an optical illusion of a hange

Tomorrow's Oct. 1 and the spooky is starting.

The Daily Mail has found photos of street signs that make a shadow that appears to look like a man being hanged.

What makes it super weird is that gallows once stood on that very spot in the Middle Ages, or at least that's what some people claim.



The illusion is seen at a spot called Dead Man's Cross in Dartmouth, Devon, where criminals were hanged in the 13th Century.

Pictures of the shadow at a crossroads between Milton Lane and Waterpool Road have gone viral after being shared on social media.

...Paula Johnston said: 'Definitely not Photoshop. Many locals, including myself, have been to the spot and looked for ourselves. 'It appears on a house opposite the crossroads known as Dead Man's Cross.'

A spokesman for Dartmouth Museum said hangings were common at Dead Man's Cross in the 1400s.





Sooooo creepy.

The latest eye trick video by YouTube optical illusionist Brusspup reveals the magical charm of anamorphosis, a visual technique used by filmmakers and photographers to distort the viewer's perspective of a 2D object by fixing its placement at a specific vantage point. If you want to try it out, you can download the images (Rubiks cube / tape roll / shoe) and print them on A4 paper.
