This optical illusion is blowing everybody’s minds
There’s nothing quite like an optical illusion to get the internet talking – like that dress, for instance, or the illusion that Trump wears a wig when that’s actually his hair. This is a more sophisticated optical illusion than that, and it’s blowing some minds.
The perptual diamond: The diamond remains fixed in one place but appears to move up, down, left, or, right. See how far away you can be from your screen before the effect goes away. From https://t.co/XRFKTtjOfm pic.twitter.com/af7BOUCvfC

An amazing motion illusion.. haven't seen any illusions of this kind before. Heads up: the gif has a flashing strobe-like background that you might want to avoid if you're sensitive to things like that. https://t.co/zE2Ey8OKrq
