Amazing Optical Illusion

Here’s an amazing optical illusion from from Zack Lynch who has a very interesting blog called Brain Waves.

Believe it or not, your eyes are making the wheels move… it’s not animated! To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving. Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop moving. Take a look at these illusions of motion that will cause your brain to twist and turn and eventually blow up.

    ask the question, “what is the effect of a right handed person being able to identify them, as too a left handed person. The results are different, because right handed people use the left side of their brain. [:
