Amazing Illusion – WATCH: The Weird Video That Will Make You Think You’re BLIND! TRY IT!
STARING at the green dot in the middle of the animation – you would be forgiven for thinking the yellow dots had vanished into thin air.
But what you’re seeing is in fact a simple optical illusion – ‘motion induced’ blindness.
As you focus on the middle green dot while the blue grid rotates, the three yellow dots on the outside in a triangle shape will begin to disappear.
But as soon as you look a way from the green dot – even just a fraction of a millimetre – the yellow dots will reappear.
The phenomenon is a trick of the eye that can cause a person to lose sight of stimuli that are in plain view.
