    No fake illusions consisting of animated .gif files! [​IMG]

    Focus on the center and move your head back and forth. It will appear to be spinning.

    Stare at the 4 dots for 30 seconds then look at a wall.

    Pfffffffft, there's nothing wrong with .gif files.

    Most illusions are the moving .gif type anyways, I don't get why the sexy flameiguana would say no .gifs.

    This one is amazing. I am showing this to all my friends now ^^.
    Man... I was thinking of a screamer or a pop-up, so I scrolled my page down and just stared at the bottom of the picture.

    Then I noticed nothing bad, so I decided to try it out. I thought it was just gonna show all black and white before when you don't stare at the dot, so I watched and guessed. When I saw the colours, I was amazed.

    The dragon head is actually concave, indented, but when you look at it with one eye (no depth perception) you can't tell it's not actually bulging out (like a "face" should). And an indented surface behaves different when you change the viewing angle, allowing for this kind of illusion.


    You can even make one yourself. They are awesome.
