The Disappearing Google Logo, a Magic!

Updated on November 13, 2012

A simple Magic Trick to fool your friend!

Many stage magic performances rely on optic illusions as our visual perception cannot always be trusted and capable of being deceived. There are many games and tricks, based on optic illusion, practiced by the professional conjurors to hoodwink the audience.

Let us take a classic illustration using the all too familiar Google logo. This is a simple trick anyone can perform as it calls for no professional expertise. As a matter of fact, this is not based on optic illusion but something different.

Gather your friends and open up the Google home page and request one of your friends to keep observing the Google logo. With this, the magic starts as you block the two ‘o’s in the logo with your fingers.

Incredible – but when you suddenly remove your finger, the two ‘o’s would have vanished. Like a seasoned magician, you can now request your friend to place his fingers over the missing ‘o’s. When he removes his finger - Lo and behold! Both the ‘o’s reappear.

Now, let us examine the method behind this simple trick.

First of all, know that it is not the true or authentic Google homepage you and your friend are looking at. Instead you are using the simulated or fake page (refer darkartsmedia.com/Google.html)

When you click on this page, you will observe that the letters of the logo disappear after the lapse of five seconds. Clicking again will make the letters reappear after five seconds. The logo has been designed in that manner to create an impact on the visitor to that page.

Thus no extraordinary skills are required to perform this seeming magic. As you move your fingers to cover the Google logo, choose to click anywhere on the page and remove your fingers after a few seconds. Again, when your friend covers the letters, you click likewise.

Please know that a third click might land you straightaway on the original Google home page.

But the drawback is you cannot play this trick with a friend who already is aware of the presence of the fake Google page.
