Although we may be comfortable with the thought that everything is as we see it in the world, that is rarely the case. As a matter of fact, there may be times when we see something quite different than reality, and that is especially true when it comes to optical illusions. There are many different types of optical illusions but one of them is known as forced perspective. This technique uses the illusion to make an object appear closer, further away, smaller or larger. In part, it is your perspective that is being used when you see these 3-D art [More]
Art may come in many different forms and for many people, it is perhaps a piece of art hanging in a gallery or a sculpture. In reality, art is in the world all around us and the talented individuals who create it are able to do so in a variety of ways. One that has become popular in recent years is 3-D street art, in which an individual draws something on the sidewalk or pavement that appears to become three-dimensional when we view it from a certain vantage point. That is what you will see in this video, but it [More]
Some tests are very easy for us to take and others may be quite difficult. At times, there may even be a test that appears to be easy on the surface but when you begin to try to do it, you quickly find out that it is one of the hardest things you have ever tried in your life. That just may be your experience when you try this particular test. Some people can do it easily but others find it to be incredibly hard. The concept behind the test is easy to understand. You will see a brick ledge [More]
When it comes to our vision, most of us just tend to take things for granted. We don’t really consider everything that takes place when we look at the world around us but in reality, it is quite complex. We use our vision to study the world and it can help to guide us in making decisions, many of which we don’t even think about as we are making them. One of the factors that many people don’t consider about their vision is their perception of what they see. For example, did you realize that the world is actually upside [More]
Optical illusions come in almost every shape and form you could possibly imagine. In some cases, they may occur naturally but in others, they are built by hand. The video you are about to see was not only created by hand, it took 2 people 3 months to build it. When they were finished, they had one of the best domino structures that I’ve ever seen. It just seems to go on forever. Many of us may have set up dominoes when we were younger to watch them fall down in a line. For this trick, more than just a [More]
When we look at the world around us, it is interesting to see the different things that are there, seemingly for our enjoyment. It seems that no matter where we look, there is something else to make us wonder or perhaps to put a smile on our face. At times, those things we see are a part of nature and at other times, they are a creation of man. Regardless of where they came from, they are a remarkable part of our world. Many people tend to have a love of life but they are especially attracted to animals. In [More]
There are many processes that take place in the human body on an ongoing basis and in most cases, we don’t even think about them. One of those is the sense of sight and we take in information from the world around us in order to give us the guidance we need to do anything from picking up a glass of water to driving an automobile. Much of it even takes place behind the scenes without even having to think about it. What many people don’t know is that the eye is an amazing organ that can take in a [More]
Your eyes work in unison with each other to give you a fairly good depiction of the world around you. Not only do they allow you to see things in a two dimensional universe, they give you a three-dimensional view and you can even see depth and distance. Since humans have two eyes that work along with each other, they have something that is known as stereo vision. This can also be manipulated in rather interesting ways. The eyes are looking at the same view but, besides they are separated, they are looking at it from a slightly different angle. [More]
When many of us think about hallucinations, we don’t typically think about something being pleasant. It causes us to see something that doesn’t exist and it is often associated with the effects of medication or perhaps with an illness that we would rather avoid. It is also possible to appreciate hallucinations, especially if we are able to direct them in some way or another. That is what you will experience with this unique video. In this video, you will have to look at the center of the screen and read some letters that are appearing one after the other. There [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 the world around us, we see things in a very specific way. It has to do with the way that light bounces off of objects that are within our field of vision and that light enters into the retina, is converted into data and transferred to the brain. The brain then interprets the data, allowing us to see the world in vivid color. Not only that, we see the world in various shades as well. When you look at a checkerboard, you see a perfect example of different shades of color. You have alternating light squares [More]
If you’re looking for something fun to do at a get together, taking a puzzle along with you may just be what is necessary to break the ice. Of course, I’m not talking about taking a jigsaw puzzle, I’m talking about a little mind game that will help to get people talking and may even win you a bet or two! There are many options available, but the Confuzzle is one that you should consider. When you lay this puzzle out on the table in front of others, it looks rather simplistic but the solution is going to be elusive. [More]
