If you wait long enough, Berkeley will blink.


Any other links to optical illusions are welcomed.

And please, say what you have to do to make the illusions work.

Re: Optical Illusions

Wow. I'm not sure I get it, but they are definitely mind boggling.

Re: Optical Illusions

I don't know how we can see it, or what does really happen in our minds, but these pictures are really something fascinating!

An optical illusion, or a sign from God?

Re: Optical Illusions

I dont know how people can see these illusions, because I sure can't see what they are!  It's really wierd what our mind can do.

Re: Optical Illusions

I can see the illision you just have to stare enough till it goes blurry then you can move away slowly and it may work.

Re: Optical Illusions

I hate the ladders. Not exactly cool but I never truly understood them.

These "rollers" rotate in one single direction. However, if you blink they appear to change direction and rotate the opposite way.

I sure cannot see Berkely blink. Perhaps making the picture larger would increase our chances of spotting it.

Re: Optical Illusions

Berkeley does not blink!!! Art technology has become advanced with optical illusions. It is interesting to see two images while looking at one.

Re: Optical Illusions

I can't get berkeley to blink, but the rest of them ar pretty cool. I don;t get how the one postd by Tklym can work. The mind is a strange place.

Are the lines parallel?

Re: Optical Illusions

I don't know about everyone else but some of these really worked for me and the others just boggle my mind. Why do some people see different then what others see? Is it our will power to want to believe it will work or do our eyes along with our minds just play tricks on us?

Re: Optical Illusions

I think that Berkely only blinks when you blink, but no one else can see it...maybe. Out of all the art I've seen these ones are the most interesting. And all the other ones only work when you don't blink.

Re: Optical Illusions

Some of these optical illusions really didn't work for me.
I stared at the Berkeley illusion for quite a while and i never seen him blink.
But then rest of the illusions are pretty neat.
