Saw it once before myself -- it really is pretty amazing!

RE: Optical Illusion

I wonder how the author created this in the first place! Didn't the author/artist also have some kind of illusion? [:D]

That's amazing. The wheels seem to move as if they were gears. All wheels move in the proper as if driven by a gear.

A byproduct of our visual system called afterimages

Those are cool, stereograms are pretty funny too. Some are so good I can see them even when sober.

As you eyes shift towards another coordinate on the graph, successive "afterimages" are created giving you the impression of movement.

Not sure how related it is to retinal persistence, a service provided free of charge by the Creator (who's name shall remain unspoken but NOMAD will do for now) so I can watch reality TV and browse forums (on CRTs).


I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

This thread should really be re-titled "Epileptics Click Here!"

Amazing! Can anyone out there explain the science behind the illusion?
