When we watch someone creating a sculpture, it is amazing how it just seems to come to life. When we look at a piece of wood or stone, it doesn’t appear to have a shape but the artist sees the potential of what it could become. Of course, there is an endless variety of what could be created, and these strobe animated sculptures have a beauty all of their own. These pieces of art are the creation of a man named John Edmark, a teacher of design at Stanford University. When these sculptures are spun, the take on a life [More]
When you look at the images in this video laying on a table, it may not look like anything special. In fact, it may not appear to be anything more than geometric shapes. They do have a strange beauty of their own but if we were to see them in our own homes, we would hardly consider them to be a piece of art. When you pull a transparent page with lines across it, however, it really takes on a life of its own. This is a type of optical illusion that is sure to amaze your senses. It may [More]
An optical illusion is not only something that tricks the eyes and the brain; it can also be quite enjoyable as well. They are often used as a type of science experiment, to show that something is not always as it appears. They can also be used as a form of entertainment, and this is not only true on an individual basis but you may also appreciate what they can do for an audience as well. In this compilation of interesting optical illusions, you will get a taste of almost every type of visual trickery that is available. It starts [More]
The human eye is perhaps one of the most amazing organs within the human body. Not only is it the fastest organ for healing, it is also the one that provides us with sensory input that guides our movements throughout the day. What our eyes see is processed by the brain and then the brain provides us with the necessary information so that we can make the appropriate movements. Since the eyes are such an important and impressive part of the human body, they are a part that we often take care of. We have them tested regularly and if [More]
Most of us feel as if we have a fairly good grip on reality but the truth is, we may be fooled more easily than what we think. After all, it is not always reality that makes a difference in what we see but rather, it is our perception of reality. As a matter of fact, many people consider perception to be the real reality. That factor will be demonstrated in this video. An optical illusion is something that tricks the mind into thinking that the eye is seeing something different than what is actually there. In many cases, it [More]
When most of us think about the human organ that is responsible for sight, we automatically think about the eyes. If you think that your vision is completely focused on your eyeballs, however, you’re absolutely wrong. As you view something, the eyeball focuses the light on the retina and then the rods and cones are affected by the light. After that takes place, then something rather amazing happens that most people fail to consider. The information that is gathered by our eyes travels along the optic nerve and enters into the brain. It is then that it is interpreted by [More]
The eyes are constantly picking up information from the world around us and transmitting it to the brain. When they do so, the brain is responsible for interpreting any information that is provided and using existing memories to create something that should be a close resemblance to what we are really seeing. The problem is, there are going to be times when we don’t see what is really there and that is what is known as an optical illusion. The optical illusions provided in this video are quite amazing. Even after you understand the truth about what you are seeing, [More]
At some time or another, all of us have enjoyed looking at optical illusions. Perhaps we saw them in school or we may have looked at them online but, in any case, they are something that can trick the mind and the eyes into perceiving a different reality than what is actually in front of us. The following optical illusions provide many different examples of how this may take place in real life. As you are about to see in this video, optical illusions are more than something that scribbled on a piece of paper or perhaps computer-generated. These take [More]
Some people spend hours learning how to create interesting optical illusions. They may learn how to draw them on a piece of paper or perhaps use a computer in order to create more complex images. In any case, an optical illusion is designed to trick the mind and the body, and it often does so with amazing results. In fact, some optical illusions are so amazing that you may not even be able to see what is really there, once you know that it exists. On the other hand, there are times when life may present a number of optical [More]
Many of us are interested in our physical health but it is also important to consider our mental health as well. I’m not necessarily talking about any serious issues that may come up but testing the strength of your mind on a regular basis can help you to recognize any problems that may exist and can even help to root out those issues before they become uncontrollable. When you look at the following optical illusions, it may just tell you something about yourself that you didn’t realize. Testing the brain is possible in many different ways and, at times, it [More]
When we look at something, we expect that we are seeing the reality of what is there. In many cases, however, what we are seeing has more to do with our perspective rather than what is truly in front of us. Admittedly, it is often accurate and we are able to react according to what we are seeing but what if your mind was to trick you into seeing something that wasn’t real? How would you react? In this video, the Crazy Russian Hacker shows you a rather amazing optical illusion. When you first start watching the video, you will [More]
Most people appreciate a good optical illusion, but they can be frustrating at times as well. That is especially true if you are trying to look beyond the illusion and see what is really in front of you. There are certain aspects about your vision and your brain that will often keep you from really seeing the reality of the situation because of your perspective or other factors. These types of phenomena are rather interesting to study. It is always a lot of fun to look at the optical illusion itself and see how they can trick the eyes, but [More]
