Optical illusion Amplified

But I believe it is a result of how the beans are positioned and put together such that a wavy illusion occurs. Feel free to check out Akiyoshi’s illusion pages for more of such illusions, also known as “anomalous motion illusion”.

As for this, I think that the colours and how the “tubes” are drawn play major roles in creating this moving illusion. It is simply amazing how this is even created.

Now let us take a look at some interesting “camera-angle-achieved” illusions.

Moreover, the shadow of the spoon gives viewers a feeling that it is that of the lady’s head. This further enhances the illusion. The blog consist many interesting illusions of all sorts, though it is quite a pity the blog is inactive now.

Girl On Random Path

Credits to BoredPanda. This picture is indeed interesting. The “path” starts behind the girl’s neck and the real one is what she is standing on and ends far far ahead… I like how this picture is taken as there is a ‘funny’ element around it. I salute the camera-man. You can definitely find more optical illusions in photos on BoredPanda.


National Institute Of Environmental Health Sciences

Lastly, we have a website full of optical illusions and also for Kids by the NIH, National Institute Of Environmental Health Sciences. (Don’t mind the ‘for kids’, the illusion there is good, especially the one on rotating pink dot, Optical illusion Amplified!)
