25 mind-bending optical illusions to boggle the brain
A series of optical illusions to boggle the mind:
#1. The Blivet Illusion: Is there a third pole in the middle or does your mind play you?
#2. What about this beautiful star? Is it floating in the background? No it’s actually a still image – It all happens in your brain.
#3. What do you see? An old couple or maybe… two Mexicans playing a guitar?
#4. I only see a couple friendly dolphins playing in the sea… What do you see?
#5. This is probably the best optical illusion ever! The squares “A” and “B” have the exact same background color.
#6. These “Beans” seem to be floating right? It’s just an still image again!
#7. This is a real classic. What do you see? An old woman or maybe a young lady? Take a closer look!
#8. Can you see the black balls between the squares? Are they really there or does your mind play you?
#9. This is a creepy optical illusion: focus on the little cross in the middle and witness the celebs turn into goofy monsters…
#10. Area A and Area B have the exact same size. Take a ruler and see for yourself!
#11. Are you looking at this chair from the front… or maybe the back? Crazy!
#12. These cigarettes are identical in size. They’re just rolled over a paper. Amazing!
#13. Another famous optical illusion. Do you see a duck… or a rabbit?
#14. How many legs does this elephant have?
#15. Here you can see four perfect circles (no spirals!). Start at one little square and try to follow the circle around.
#16. Can you see the dark shaded areas between the black squares? They’re not really there – your brain made them!
#17. What do you see? A woman walking by or maybe… the face of a man?
#18. Try to focus on one of the two “faces”. Your brain doesn’t know which “face” is real.
#19. This is a classic too. Depending on which side of the brain you’re using the woman will spin either clockwise (right and creative side of the brain) or anti-clockwise (left and logic side of the brain). Which side are you using right now?
#20. Is it moving? No it’s just an jpg image!
#21. Look at this image for about 1 minute and then look at someones face. What do you see?
#22. Is this square only spinning or also pulsating?
#23. These lines seem to be bending right? False, they’re completely straight.
#24. The Impossible Triangle
#25. This amazing maze seems to be waving and moving. Is it really?
