Saw and found something interesting in my e-mail box today and want to share it with the rest of the word here, so here it is. Enjoy it. Oh the link just directly under this is also very interesting. Self having no use on it, as 1) I don't have one, 2) I don't Live in the states, 3)The app shall be USA orientated.

For those with an android phone, this can be very useful for you:

Optical Illusions

I adore a good optical illusion, so I was very happy when Steve directed my attention to this site. The site is set up blog style, so all you have to do to navigate it is scroll down the page!

The first image is stellar. A man sitting on a ledge, looking over a road that seems to be going straight downwards, it is certainly one of my favorite images here.

As you are viewing the images, make sure you click them so you can see them full size. You can use the back button on your browser to navigate back to the main page. I think itís certainly important to viewing the ones that move.

Next you move onto animations that are really moving, the question here is, which way are they actually moving? Clockwise? Counter-clockwise? You decide.

The stereo images move, but in a unique way. They have the feel of the way waves of heat will make what youíre looking at move. So it gives the impression that the swimmer really has just dived into the water, the fire is blazing away, and Iím guessing you should feel like youíre walking through the forest.

Point of view illusions are next! And the site has dedicated quite a few pictures to the cause. These are absolutely amazing, be sure to check them out! The site focuses on buildings at first but after you look at some 3D Transformations, youíll come right back to point of view illusions. I love the picture of the man holding up the island.

After youíve made your way through all the optical illusions on this page, I encourage you to click the Read Part 1 link Ė where you will find even more optical illusions and some amazing sidewalk chalk art, as well as, amazing feats of advertizing!

Check it out today!

No problem Firestorm, and well today I found another site with illusions to browse through.

An Optical Illusion

I adore optical illusions, which you may have noticed from the sites Iíve shared in the past. Well, I found an awesome site dedicated to optical illusions that I couldnít wait to share with you. I really liked it because it isnít just same optical illusions that youíre used to seeing, but modern interpretations of illusion that will have your jaw dropping!

The site is easy to navigate because it is set up blog-style, so just scroll down the page and prepare to be wowed. You can also use the Older Posts link at the bottom of the page to see the previous entries.

Each entry offers background on the illusion being featured as well as an example of it. They also often include links to where you can see more of that type of illusion, or to previous entries of the same kind of illusion.

I really loved the most recent post when I was there. It was the Lego Terracotta Army Ė a sidewalk chalk drawing of Lego people as the famous Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang. It probably helps that Iíve been obsessed with sidewalk chalk since I was a little kid (and then seeing Mary Poppins) didnít help matters any. I also loved the video of the Checker Shadow Illusion, and the Fact/Fiction Ambigram (I saw Faction at first). The Terrace by David MacDonald was also really well done.

My suggestion is to just dive in and start going through the illusions; but take a break if your eyes start to hurt. Some of the black and white or black and bright yellow ones hurt my eyes after a long viewing.

This is an awesome site dedicated to optical illusions, go check it out!
