Talk About a Really Cool Optical Illusion [PHOTO]
Have you seen this yet? I love optical illusions and this one is COOL!! I mean really cool! Follow the instructions after the jump and see for yourself.
Here’s what you do:
1. Stare at the red dot on the girl’s nose in the image below for 30 seconds
2. Turn your eyes towards the wall/ceiling or somewhere else on a plain surface.
3. Keep blinking your eyes quickly!! DON’T LOOK BACK AT THE PHOTO. We made that mistake the first time.
How cool was that! Wondering how this happens? It's called "afterimage" and it takes place after you overstimulate your eyes by staring for a long period of time. Once you unlock your gaze, your vision overcompensates in the other direction, which causes you to see the opposite colors of what you just viewed.
Some people are think the woman is Beyonce, Kim Kardashian or Mila Kunis. The photo is actually of Indian actress Deepika Padukone. Since this illusion has been storming the internet this week, the 26-year-old just became internationally famous in a really cool way!
