I can't move my eyes quick enough to see if the other circles are spinning or not.
Ack! My eyes! It BURNS!
Wow, i like that. obviously its not a moving image, were just retarded and think it is.lol
it's cool if you can stare at it a certain way, all the circles stop.
That's slightly nauseating.
Focus on a little black dot in the middle and they stop spinning
Yeh, when you unfocus your eyes it stops spinning and you are able to walk straight.
AAAH! It's like an acid trip! I feel like I'm in swingin 60's London watching a Floyd show!
(and is that such a bad thing? )
Looks like a nest of rattlesnakes waking up from a nap!
It burns! My eyes! It BURNS!
Anybody have any ideas on how to get vomit out of a keyboard?
Wow, that is freaky.
Does anyone know why the illusion works the way it does? An explanation would be illuminating!
This is a very nice version of an optical illusion that's known for a long time.
Slight anomalies in the optical system of the human eye (cornea + lens + glass body) make parts of the image with small textures change place on the retina a little bit - the amount of the size of the structure. This happens outside the central area (fovea) of the retina (which is the best and has the highest resolution) and is visible when the eye is moving (which is a normal "scanning" movement of our gaze). Thus structures that are small enough appear to move (instead of being ever so slightly distorted, like the larger structures do and which goes virtually unnoticed).
Once you force your eyes to be totally still (compared to the image), the illusion disappears.
Rats! Nothing I do makes it look like it's moving.
(Please, no ideas involving liquor. )
have you been in to see a doctor lately mr brianw?
Perhaps you're too far from the screen? I find it worked better at the office than it does at home. At work, I'm sitting closer to the monitor.
Not moving for me either, either up close or farther away. Don't know what that says about me.
