Optical illusions make use of our mind's collective unit, from the brain to the eyes, everything's challenged to figure out what the illusion conceals.
Now Reddit, brings to us an optical illusion, which is breaking the internet because it is so friggin' hard to process and understand quickly.
A Twitter user, Chaz Firestone, first introduced that the illusion, claiming all balls are brown but appear to be of different shades. Some agree, some simply fail to spot the brown colour.
All the balls are the same color — and that color is *brown*! pic.twitter.com/JriPXHnNYR— Chaz Firestone (@chazfirestone) June 14, 2019
We have no idea what the world really looks like. Our brains, man.— Brandon Walowitz (@brandonwalowitz) June 15, 2019
in the same way, oranges look way more orange in orange mesh bags :) pic.twitter.com/2fxFrVcbD5— Alexei Kojenov (@kojenov) June 14, 2019
That's amazing. I honestly didn't believe the guy at first.— Susan (@warbird) June 15, 2019
Some even called it fake news.
But for those who didn't get how that can happen, some users were on point.
That's amazing. Here is the picture with the color bars made gray where they cross "on top of" the balls, just to show the underlying ball color. pic.twitter.com/clxEDBHMGs— Joffan (@Joffan7) June 14, 2019
Including a 7-year-old.
My 7-yo son instantly said the spheres are all beige. Shocked, I asked him again and he confidently said they're all light brown, but they have different colour stripes over them.— Mathew Owens (@mathewjowens) June 15, 2019
Does the illusion not work on kids?! Or is he some kind of proto X-man?
Quite engaging and clearly a trick, which many would've missed despite looking at it a 100 times. How long did it take you?
