Posted by smilingpatience on Oct 17, 2005

It doesn't do anything when I go in and when I zoom out it only moves slowly. It made me sad, I was hoping for more of an effet, but still good.

Posted by pinoymafro on Oct 30, 2005

crayzie. so why did ppl even vote on difficulty?

Posted by speedyhewitt on Nov 01, 2005

I moved back anfd forth from monitor,....nothing, then I moved further and did same thing... NOTHING!!..sorry,..don't mean to offend, but I think anyone that saw something was ON SOMETHING or easily amused (aka..BORED!!) or maybe my optical acuity is connected to my mental acuity and therefore not easily fooled!!

Posted by elu93 on Nov 04, 2005

I thought that was awesome!

Posted by speediebean on Nov 06, 2005

To speedyhewitt, that could be. I just took a Lunesta about 10 minutes agin, and when I looked at this illusion, both the rings were spinning in oposite directions.
I think the sleep aid is kicking in, so perhaps this isn't the best time for me to be doing these!!

Posted by Jon0513 on Nov 07, 2005

I never get tired of looking at this illusion. I think it's a great one!

Posted by goosh on Nov 10, 2005

Posted by hamburger on Nov 13, 2005

They dont "Appear" to do anything! They actually rotate, and I wont believe anything anybody tells me.

Posted by queenbee53 on Nov 16, 2005

This is really cool! This is actually the first one I have never seen before.

Posted by kickthecan on Nov 19, 2005

Posted by choptlivva on Jan 06, 2006

Well... at least I got my exercise for the day!! At first I saw NOTHING.... and then I finally could see a slight rotation of the INNER ring!! Don't you think that differences in our vision could account for whether we can see this or not?

Posted by rose_Luv_heart on Jan 06, 2006


Posted by anirtak1131 on Jan 14, 2006

Well that was awsome!!!!

Posted by SPUTNIK2 on Jan 16, 2006

well that was pretty amazing stuff! Thank you to the sender

Posted by princess_kayti1 on Jan 16, 2006

I almost hat a seisure x.x

Posted by bootscooter58 on Jan 18, 2006

At first I stared at the illusion and glanced away -- like the flag illusion. Then as usuall it helped when I read the directions again! (tee hee) I did see the inner ring move. I agree with some of the above comments that the state of our vision plays some in whether we see the rings move at all, or how much, or which ring. All that being said, I really enjoyed this illusion and hope to see more. Anything that teases my brain is a good thing.

Posted by puttaholic on Jan 19, 2006

that is the best one!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Psychic_Master on Jul 01, 2006

Brilliant! Definitely one of my favourite optical illusion teasers. And for all the people who can't see it, it's either you're not doing it right or your seriously need to get your eyes checked. You have to stare at the red dot in the middle, and then move your head back and forth (quite a significant amount) and you should be able to see it very easily.

Posted by akl21 on Jul 03, 2006

That's awesome!!!

Posted by devils400 on Jul 07, 2006

i need a new pair of eyes

Posted by jollylolly on Jul 11, 2006

Posted by rrn0rrnrrnY on Sep 03, 2006

I feel so left out. Everyone raving about this and I barely see it if at all and look rather silly when I try. I like some of the others much better than this one. Maybe I best get my glasses done again.

Posted by Pizzazz2u on Dec 30, 2006

Visually deceiving, isn't it? Thank goodness, some of us look for the facts, instead of what we want to believe can be true.

Posted by lavender on Jan 01, 2007

Posted by madbolin on Jun 14, 2007


Posted by FutureMD on Jun 18, 2007

Yes, this is a "classic" optical illusiom, but it is fun. I do have to admit that, for some reason, the effect with this one isn't as big as with others that are similar.

Posted by Sand_Kirton on Jul 20, 2008

No wait -- nope.Errr... Nope. Nothing.
Count me among those who are physiologically incapable of being delightfully deceived by such.
Maybe I'll print the wheel and post it on a wall over my head, then watch how many people "see" this.
