An optical illusion is a visually perceived image that is deceptive or misleading.

Submitted By:Jake


Some people only see three angled lines, but if you look carefully you can actually see the letter E in the empty space.

I enjoyed! Good one!

Posted by LindseyAnne34 on Nov 16, 2005

I saw the E. Very cool

Posted by Rowsdower on Nov 16, 2005

Neat. I've seen this idea used to spell out words. My grandparents had a wall hanging that at first glance looked like random angles but a closer look revealed the word "Jesus."

Posted by peppamintp on Nov 17, 2005

Missed the E. Can't see it

Posted by soccer_chick70 on Nov 17, 2005

I luv this!! I draw those on my friend's papers in the shapes of saying HI! (tried to do it with |s and _s in the comment box to show it, but it didnt work Great optical illusion though!

Posted by BrownEyes on Nov 17, 2005

This is the first one I've never seen before. Nice.

Posted by bookworm91 on Nov 18, 2005


Posted by TURTLESrock on Nov 19, 2005

i don't get what you're supposed to see

Posted by mrbrainyboy on Nov 20, 2005

Look closely. The angles form the right sides of the letter "E".

Posted by wolfmanh on Nov 24, 2005

Eeeh bah gum t'at was gud

Posted by luckythirteen on Jan 01, 2006

it first looked like a bunch of lines with right angles, but if you looked at it carefully, it turns into a white 'E'...good illusion

Posted by mr_brainiac on Jan 08, 2006

Like seeing shapes in the clouds, ink blots tests, or the face of Christ on a scorched tortilla, the mind is always trying to organize and recognize things in order to make sense of them. All it takes is a slightly familiar pattern for us too see things that aren't really there. (I read that in a psychology book once.)

Posted by muskratgal89 on Jan 10, 2006

YEA i saw it right away....
you kinda have to look at it for a long time but keep them coming

Posted by jjdolphine on Feb 16, 2007

I saw the e, had to look for angles... Odd...

Posted by bgil7604 on Feb 21, 2007

Seen many like it, but still really cool!

Posted by SmartyBrainStar on Mar 07, 2007

At first I only saw the angles, then the E came, and now I can't see the angles...

Posted by jandew on Mar 18, 2007

sorry, had to see if i could do it; plus i was wondering if UTF-8 showed up

Posted by jandew on Mar 18, 2007

yep, didn't work; was worth a try, though!

♥☺☻ ♥☺☻ ♥☺☻ ♥☺☻ ♥☺☻ ♥☺☻

Posted by Kamazar on Jun 10, 2007

I get it. The lines are actually the shadow. One of the best illusions I've seen.

Posted by FutureMD on Jun 18, 2007

Very cool. It's strange, really. I see the "E" more easily, but I feel I am in the minority with this situation.

Posted by ringpop_rara on Jun 23, 2007

this one is my favirite pretty impressive

Posted by saltydavid on Jun 28, 2007

Posted by steeler84 on Dec 04, 2007

It hurt my eyes

super-duper-duper-duper cool

Posted by karlacn on Dec 16, 2007

wow, you have to focus on the middle though

Posted by beriesNcreamx28 on Dec 19, 2007

i origanally saw an e but then saw the angles
maybe i have a backwards mind

Posted by Tbqavonfrog4 on Jan 15, 2008

yeah at first i saw the angles, then once i saw the E, I couldnt hardly see the angles again.

Posted by lauren044-- on Jan 20, 2008

I couldn't tell at first that it was an "E"

Posted by rush2 on Jan 21, 2008

good one

Posted by math321 on Apr 09, 2008

|__| WOW!

Posted by huntchasedown on Apr 24, 2008


Posted by divy on Apr 28, 2008

could not believe that the letter E can make me think so much it was really awesome

Posted by 10is on May 20, 2008

It was ok. I have actually seen it before. It was super easy to seethe letter 'e' to me.

Posted by Eemia1212 on Jun 22, 2008

I didn't see it at first thats well cool

Posted by StreetsDisciple on Jul 01, 2008


Posted by ICUB42 on Sep 16, 2008

That was kool!
But apparently my eyes must be messed up. I could pick out the "E" right away. In fact, I think it would be easier to read billboards and signs like that.

Posted by HawkGarcia on Oct 27, 2008

I saw the E right away.

Posted by LouiseF on Nov 21, 2008

great illusion, i love the way that it looks 3d

Posted by bradon182001 on Dec 09, 2008

I,too, picked out the E right away, but then after looking at it for a minute, I lost the E and only saw 3 angles. I had to look away and really concentrate to see the E again.

Posted by here2 on Jan 13, 2009

It would be interesting to see the same "font" for the rest of the alphabet.

Posted by ethan897 on Feb 01, 2009

i saw a e right away

Posted by pokegirl09 on Feb 08, 2009

Me too!

Posted by Holo on Feb 15, 2009

I saw the E first

Posted by HiggieBaby on Mar 27, 2009

I saw the "E" immediately.

Posted by Shelilah on Apr 18, 2009

the E is easy to see

Posted by ashfitz96 on May 04, 2009

That is so cool. I can see both 3 different lines and the E!

Posted by simbatiger on May 10, 2009

I can only see the E...

Posted by Lil_Dork on May 15, 2009

Posted by CCcook on Nov 27, 2009

It was ok.... VERY EASY

Posted by yasmina on Feb 25, 2010

Amazing !!!

Posted by xxsoftballxx13x on Feb 26, 2010

That took me a while to figure out. After I noticed it though, I couldn't stop staring.

Posted by HoboCat on Mar 25, 2010

I see more E than angled lines at first.

Posted by gathena on May 27, 2010

wow that is really cool! When you look at it at first you don't see the E then after a bit you see the E for just a split second! Then you start to see it more often!

Posted by pointless on Nov 09, 2010

lol its both

Posted by Candyhook on Nov 18, 2010

oh my gosh - that is so neat!

Posted by lunaNueva365 on Dec 14, 2010

I can anly see the E!!!
Where are the angles?

Posted by smartlilgirl98 on Feb 05, 2011


Posted by SkittenAnnie on Jun 18, 2011

Sorry to say but I got it off the bat;kinda easy but sometimes the easy thing are the most fun.

Posted by GhostBella on Nov 05, 2011

nice one i can see it

Posted by GhostBella on Nov 05, 2011

nice one i can see it

Posted by Benjiboo on Nov 05, 2011

i thought it was going to be like this: you stare at it for a while and...RRRRRAAAAAAARRRRRR a giant scary letter e and scares the heck outta ya! (im scared now

Posted by Tife4real on Feb 09, 2012

Very nice!

Posted by lovemybrain123 on Feb 27, 2012

LOL! I see an E more than 3 angled lines, and the submitter said that most people only see 3 angled lines. It makes me feel special since I am not in the "most people" group.

Posted by SaraGrace on Jul 30, 2013

The E is way cooler than the angled lines

Posted by klsowell on Nov 18, 2013

It looks like angles when its big but in the optical illusion list selection thingamajig it REALLY looks like an E. I hate/love those illusions where you're staring stupidly at a bunch of lines when all of a sudden this big giant creepy thing jumps out at you from nowhere. Like that cow/inkblot one. Long story. But yeah, I liked it.

Posted by stitch-ex626 on Oct 26, 2014

that was really easy for me to see but i love the different optical ollusions.

Posted by happyland3000 on Dec 01, 2014

All I saw was the E! I need to focus hard to see the angles!

Posted by JeremyRedhead on Feb 11, 2015

And it's 3d!!!
Such 3d.

Posted by wanted1081 on Dec 01, 2015

i know how to write my name in this way guys


and it is very hard to write a name with curve letter in this way

Posted by _Eclipse_ on Nov 11, 2016

It took me a moment to see just the angles. At first all I could see was the letter E
