    If so, look at this:

    Mr Angry is on the left and Mrs Calm is on the right. Now take them off and the faces should switch.

    If you're unlucky enough to be w/o glasses you have to move away from the computer screen until the faces switch.

    I'm watching this from my living room couch on my front projection system.

    I take off my glasses...

    yeah, I have glasses also, but the correction is so weak, it made no difference in the picture. Had to back up about 10 ft before they switched.

    I took my glasses off and had to back up to see the switch. How did they make the pictures switch like that?

    Cool optical illusion - or is Mr. Angry actually Ms. Calm with PMS before she got her chocolate?

    It's simply a matter of focus...what's in focus in one picture becomes out of focus as YOUR focus changes...it's very well balanced. If you have a focusable lens handy (camera, binoculars, etc.), look at the picture through it, and then change the focus -- you'll see the "switch" as it occurs.

    Still pretty cool, though. [​IMG]

    Very impressive. Finally, there's something good about having to wear glasses! [​IMG]

    Funny reading all the posters that needed to back up to see the switch. I actually had to move closer to the screen to see the switch. At normal viewing distance, the faces were just blobs.

    I have LASIK monovision. It works for me when I close my corrected eye.
