This red spiral appears to move

This is a great demonstration of illusory movement. It seems the bigger the image and the bigger the screen, the more it appears to work. It also helps if you try to count the objects inside this moving red spiral. As your eyes move around, you'll see the red "dots" flicker.

Start with the outer circle and just move your eyes around as if you are counting the dots. Then try to freeze your eyes and as you don't move them, see if the rest of the image is moving. As with all of our moving pictures, you may want to print them out to prove that they're really not moving, it just looks like they are! Personally, I think it looks like a school of fish, all moving together in quick waves with the ocean.

This is another CoolOpticalIllusions.com original image, and you have permission to link to it if you link back to coolopticalillusions.com. Thanks, and enjoy the illusion!

Best of the Best (our newest original optical illusions)
Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
