Cool Eye Trick – Try this mind bending optical illusion

Here’s something fun for you to try. It’s one of these freaky eye trick images!

How to do it:
Look at the image and just move your eyes towards the different circles, you should soon see the other circles appear to be moving!

Illusion Eye Trick

Did it work for you? If not you must be an alien or something.

I wonder how it tricks your eyes like that? P.S Don’t look at it for too long you’ll get a headache.

This is really funky. It doesn’t matter how many times you try either it is always the same outcome. Seems impossible to adjust to it. Clever bit of work from the creator.

If you know of more crazy funky stuff like this you can send it into us via the super speedy magic that is electronic mail, we will take a look and publish it if its good enough. As always, opinions welcome further down.

  1. it is just colors that tricks ur eyes into thinking they are moving idoits

  2. Its sooo cool. You should see some other ones they have. Try cutting out one of the circles after printing, then look away. In the corner of your eye it should look like a turning wheel.

  10. At first I just thought it was a just a trick like some sort of animation but then I printed it to paper and it still moved about. Truly creepy

  11. lol i printed it it works better on my comp than on paper 😉 i like this one, i can tell that its not programed to automatically move bcuz i stared at 1 spiral and it stoped while the rest moved. Thats one was pretty kewl!

  12. It’s not moving! I saved it and it’s not a gif. file. I also put it as my sister’s background and she’s to stupid to know how to change it. >:D
