The Best Optical Illusion of 2011

Check out the winner of the best optical illusion of 2011 by Harvard University graduate student Jorday Suchow, and assistant professor in Harvard’s psychology department, George Alvarez.

What you need to do is stare at the white dot in the middle and note how when the dots around start to spin, they seem to stop changing color. In reality, they do not slow down or stop changing colors at all. This is because the spinning motion somehow suppresses the viewer’s ability to detect those changes. The brain works in mysterious ways!

Remember folks, this is not an illusion – father’s Day is coming up June 19th – if you want to see the coolest fathers day ecards on the web and schedule delivery now, then click here!
