Optical Illusions and Visual Phenomena
Optical illusion are fascinating while teaching us about our visual perception, and limits thereof. My emphasis here is on the beauty of perceptual phenomena, on interactive experiments, and explanation of the visual mechanisms involved – to the degree that they are understood Befriending mobile devices: >50 interactive demos now without Flash, but require up-to-date browser versions. Don’t let it irk you if you don’t see all the phenomena described. For many illusions, there is a percentage of people with perfectly normal vision who just don’t see it, often for reasons currently unknown. If you are not a vision scientist, you might find my explanation attempts too highbrow.
