You might have seen some of these optical illusions before, but there are some new ones, and the clip is nicely edited.

They lied about the mobius strip. You can make one really easily. All you have to do is cut like a 6" long and 1" thick piece of paper and turn one end 180* and then tape it to the other end. you should then have a one sided piece of paper.

I feel like I`ve had some sort of subliminal message implanted into my psyche. Not good.

"I have a great idea! I`ll make a quasi-educational video about optical illusions, but instead of giving the viewers enough time to really study the images, I`ll move on to the next one. I`ll do this over and over again in hopes of pissing them off."

congratulations. it worked.

that was nifty, it went fast but...i liked it! and for some reason, illusions always remind me of those magic eye photos where you look all crosseyed at it to see the picture. those are fun

Yeah, I also had a problem with how quickly things went by. The point of optical illusions is to get to see them and think about what makes them strange. This didn`t give you enough to get there.

Can I just point out that the flag given the name "Union Jack" here is incorrect. It is actually called the Union Flag, and only properly referred to as a Union Jack when flown from the bowsprit of a ship.
According to a website providing information on the history of the Union Flag, "as `jack` once meant small, the name is derived from a royal proclamation issued by Charles II that the Union Flag should be flown only by ships of the Royal Navy as a jack, (a small flag at the bowsprit)."

/end rant.

As for the video, I thought it was nicely edited, the text was just right, but the illusions could have done with sticking around a bit longer.

This was on the front page of Yahoo! maybe a month ago, I thought it was cool how they editted all the illusions to move, nice text too.

The text didn`t go too fast calmel, the illusions themselves did.

I`ve seen em all before, but seeing the explanations being animated (e.g. the same colour different locations illusion, the two boxes are joined together) is quite interesting.

i have saw most of this before too. but still cool. the stair at the object worked better as a video i think when it changed i can see a after image a lot better than moving to another surface.

nifty...and yes, you can make a mobius strip in real life. just take a strip of paper and give one end a half turn and connect the ends.

Hmm, it was well done, but I couldn`t help but feel that it was a little rushed.

Anyone know the song?

That WAS nicely edited. But I think we made a mobius strip once in biology. I have no idea why it was in biology, either.
