Optical Illusions in Our Life

Updated on March 7, 2017

Optical Illusion can be defined as the wrong perception of our brain that does not tally with the actual physical measurements of stimulating objects. This is happening because of the presence of neighbouring objects which make our eyes to gather wrong informations and send it to our brain. Generally optical illusions happen due to many factors of objects including color, size, angle and so on. Let us see some of the interesting optical illusion pictures here below.

 Do you believe that small rectangular bar inside has same grey shade througout? You can confirm this taking close look at the bar by hiding remaining part.

It's amazingly true that A block and B block in the above picture have the same grey shade. You can feel this when you take a close look at them.

You know how many colors are in the above picture? It may appear as four, but, only pink, green and white colors are used in the above picture. The pixel effect has made the pink squares lying between the green squares slightly reddish.

Line Optical Illusions

Yes! Though all the above lines are seeming inclined to each other, they are parallel to each other.

Are you ready to believe that all the vertical and horizontal lines inside the circle are absolutely parallel? You can check out the fact with the help of a scale.

Size Optical Illusion

Do you feel any difference in the size of centre circles which are in same size?

Do you feel the vertical line on the right side taller than the left one? No, they both have equal height.

Do you feel upper spherical ball is slightly bigger one? If so, you are wrong! They both are in equal size.

Do you see both rabbit and duck in the above picture?

Move forward and backward concentrating at the central black spot. You will see the rotating wheels.

Can you say from which side you are viewing above shown window?
