Optical illusions are mind blowing at any age. When you’re a child, they make you question everything, and that doesn’t exactly change when you’re an adult. It’s crazy to think how our minds and eyes work in different ways to play tricks on us, and make us see things that aren’t actually there. Some illusions are all in the eyes, playing on your eyes’ abilities and limitations, while others are due to the signals in the brain and its judgement calls. Either way, optical illusions seem to take us into a trippy dimension.
The other fun thing about optical illusions is that sometimes different people see different things. Remember that blue dress that almost broke the internet? Or was it gold? Some saw one colour while others saw another, and some people even saw both. The spinning lady in this video has a similar illusion. While some people see her turning clockwise, others see her turning counter clockwise. Without being told she could turn the other way, many people would probably never know.
The two most amazing optical illusions in this video are the first and the last. The first may seem like your average picture of a parrot, but there is something that makes it extraordinary. You would never guess by looking at it, but the parrot isn’t actually a parrot at all. And the last illusion has the internet totally crazed. What exactly is it that’s suck in the brick wall? Have you figured it out yet? If you haven’t, prepare to have your mind blown!
There are many different types of optical illusions, from circles that look like they’re spiraling out of control, to images of leaves that aren’t moving but look like they’re blowing in the wind, to illusions that make your mind and eyes think they’re seeing something that they’re not. Even celebrities aren’t sheltered from the optical illusion game. There’s an illusion in here that will have all your favourite stars looking like freaky monsters. No makeup involved.
When it comes to optical illusions there’s no telling what you might discover. You may think you’re seeing one thing, but it could actually be something entirely different. From the A and B grid that has been stumping people for years, to the newest brick wall illusion, these are the 10 best optical illusions that will blow your mind. Get ready to flip out.
