Couldn’t help but blog and share this mind-blowing optical illusions I came across the internet lately. All credits to Plural.com who created these and IQ Real Sense site by Intel where I actually found these great work of “art” and where I get the texts.
Wikipedia (woot!) says – optical illusion (also called a visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. The information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a perception that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source.
Whatever that means – by looking at the following images, you’ll surely see how these can trick your mind into seeing or perceiving something totally different.
Now go and try it out – it’s good mental exercise.
The Unreal Cube
In this illusion, we’ve used perspective to make the cube look like something it’s not, a technique known as anamorphosis. When seen from a different angle, the cube’s true nature becomes clear.
