the magic eye pictures really do work.You just have to learn how to see them.like in the first link, if u look at the professor pointing at a magic eye book, try looking at the book and it shows a face with 2 eyes.

HIS point is that the brain automatically interprets a negative impression of a face as a positive one since it instinctively knows that there are no faces that go inwards and up to a point he`s right. This is the same as on the dragon illusion posted above; since the video is two-dimensional we lose our depth perception, and with that lack of information the brain interprets it as being an outwards image.

yeh we gathered that he just didnt have to say it 5 or 6 times.

is it just me or can you never see what is hidden in those magic eye pics? I don`t think i`ve ever seen one that works. I think i am suspicious of it being a hoax, just to laugh at people staring at them for ages, pretending they can see things. maybe all the ones i`ve seen are!

" and it`s turning here...here it comes again, note the illusions hasn`t f*cking changed, maybe it will if we see it rotate 20 more times, yes, here it comes again, look at it, just spinning around there..."
the dragon illusion is better though, i printed it off the net <3

i`ve seen these masks before; better versions, though, where the reverse is painted as well and looks just like the front. =) then it looks really neat.

I`ve seen it before, but each time I am thoroughly amazed by how something can be crafted in such a manner as to appear "outward" on both the outside and the inside of the mask.

I, too, saw this type of illusion for the first time with the Einstein head so I was expecting to see the same effect when I clicked the link. I was expecting the 3-D inward-yet-outward face so I couldn`t see past the illusion. Boo hoo.

It`s a normal mask. What our brains do with the inside of it is the illusion. Just pause it at different angles. You`ll see where the inside begins to look like a blank face rotating in the opposite direction. Then the edge comes around and the illusion is over. The dragon is much better because it is designed with fooling the brain in mind and most angles (on one side) generate the illusion.

I can`t see it as hollow no matter how hard I try, it always snaps into a regular face rotating the opposite direction for part of the time.

Ragdrazi, there`s obviously some of us that are far too intellectually advanced to see the illusion at first.

The only reason why I caught it was my short attention span causing me to lose interest and `look past` the mask.


Thanks gnazzah. I just printed it off and I`ll put it together tomorrow.


And no problem nico.
