I’ve always found optical illusions fun and intriguing. In fact, I like them so much that I visited the Museum of Illusions three times. In this video, Andrew Steele shares an interesting optical illusion that tricks your brain into seeing a black and white photo in color. Of course, I tried it. It works, and it’s really trippy. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself.
This optical illusion makes you see colors in black and white photos
Artist and “a digital media toolsmith” Øyvind Kolås has recently published a visual experiment that took the internet by storm. He created a simple, but effective optical illusion which messes with your brain, making you see a color image when it’s actually black and white.
Your brain is seeing these colours wrong and here’s why
Readers of this blog know that we are kind of obsessed with color and color perception. Here is a great example of why color can never be an exact science and has a lot do to with your brains and how they perceive color. See if you can tell (without hitting the “read more” button) how many different colors these spheres have.
Photographer turns models into amazing optical illusions using only make-up and props
Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov and makeup artist Veronica Ershova are known for some brilliant optical illusions. They have recently published their latest project titled Humiforms, which turns models into familiar objects using only makeup and simple props. Thanks to Veronica’s marvelous makeup and Alexander’s photography skills, the illusions were made entirely in-camera, and the final black and white images are truly striking.
A single photo creates optical illusion that will mess with your mind
Optical illusions are awesome. Sometimes it takes a proper angle, light, or some help from Photoshop to make them and create a fascinating effect. But other times, a single photo is enough to play with your mind.
Vision AI is just as stupid as real people. This isn’t a crowd of people at a concert
It’s always funny the things we see in images that aren’t really there. Like probably most of you who saw this come up as a preview on social media, I thought this was a crowd at a concert on first glance. But no, it’s not, it’s a field of cotton about to be mowed down by machines at night.
Don’t feel too bad, though. It turns out that Google’s Vision AI also thought it was a rock concert, too.
