10 Optical Illusions That Will Blow Your Mind – From finding hidden object that we are convinced aren’t there, to mind bending Illusions that trick our brains, optical Illusions are plentiful and vast on the internet.
This monochromatic photo of a castle is actually messing with your brain as you are viewing it. As you stare at the blue dot in the middle, your brain is getting used to the red, green, and blue colors it is viewing and will start to ignore them over time.
There are many optical Illusions on the internet that seem to change direction right in front of us. This is a photo of a cat, but the question is, is the car runnig up or down the stairs? Take a moment to decide.
At first glance this photo looks like a young boy leaning on a tree staring out at a lake. But looks can be deceiving, as there actually is no lake in this picture. Do you see it? If you are stumped, here is the answer.
In this optical Illusion you will see blue and green spirals separated by Pink-Orange spirals. What if we told you that the separate blue and green spirals are actually the same color!
This optical Illusion drove twitter users crazy when its designer released it in september of 2016, take a look at this image. It seems like there are 2 maybe 3 black dots that are constantly moving between the grey intersecting lines.
The truth is, this is a static photo, and there are actually 12 dots total that don’t move. Our brains won’t let us see all the dots at one time, therefore this photo has an Illusion of disappearing or moving dots.
It’s obvious that these two photos are pictures of the leaning tower of pisa. But it seems like the tower is leaning a little more in the photo on the right.
These are actually identical photos, and your brain is treating them as a single scene. Normally when you see two columns together they appear to be getting closer to one another as you look up.
Because these are photos from a lower perspective, our brains think the columns will appear closer together. But since this tower isn’t actually straight, it appears the one on right is actually leaning away.
Phone on Rug
This optical Illusion proved to be one of the most frustrating brainteasers ever. The photo went viral on facebook, after the photographer took a photo of their phone on a rug.
The photo features a flowery rug, and asks viewers to find the phone. Take your shot at it. Did you see it? If you are having trouble spotting it, you aren’t alone! It’s nearly impossible to find the phone because it has a nearly identical flowery battern on it, as the rug.
Take a look at the bottom right leg of the white table, the phone is lying on the ground right next to it. Was that a tough one for you?
Makeup artists have started picking up one the effect they can have by creating optical illusions with special makeup. One teen created a fake wound so convincing that it left her friends completely terrified.

Seeing just how freaked out her friends got over the makeup, she started posting her gory makeup illusions online and hopes to spring board all attention into a career in special effects makeup.
