Optical illusions have always fascinated me.
As a kid, I loved looking at the images we were given in school, trying to tilt them different ways to see as much as I could before giving the teacher an answer to the question, “What do you see?” On paper, it’s much easier to decipher exactly what’s going on in an illusion, but the internet has given rise to a new generation of animated mind puzzles, and they’re not so easy to figure out.
Take this one, for instance. Are these shapes white and moving on a black background or black and moving on a white background?
This one has you staring for awhile, but you’ll be seeing things when you’re finally instructed to look away.
