Here's an original eye trick to get you started. Then click on the yellow links to the left to see the other eye tricks in this collection!

trapezoid cube 3-d optical illusion

Here is another original optical illusion, found only at coolopticalillusions.com! On the left, you see stairs, with a rainbow pole stuck into the steps. ON the right, you see the same pole, but it has been stuck through what appear to be four blue bars. Take a close look in the middle and it's tough to tell where the stairs end and where the bars begin.

The other part of this optical illusion is how the wall on the left looks like it just supports the stairs, but the wall on the right actually shows the bars going deeper into the wall. The top of the bars are closer to us than the bottom bars, or so it appears.

And if those two fun things aren't enough, the final optical illusion is that the trapezoidal walls that we were talking about could also be inverted, and it could appear the the bars/stairs are just floating on top of a 3-d trapezoid. If you have trouble seeing this, imagine you are looking down on the 3-d trapezoid, with the white square as the top, and the purple sides and the gray bottom make up the rest of the cubical shape.

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

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!

Moving Backgrounds

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.
