You have no idea how easy it is to cheat . Strange and at the same time quite an interesting optical illusion is gaining popularity in the Network, forcing users to guess what they see in reality: black-and-white photo or color. Created as a visual experiment by the Norwegian artist and programmer øyvind Ear image with the original image applied over a colored grid many people think the fully colored. How is this effect and why the color bars to change perceptions of the entire image? Let's face it.
Initially, the ear has published a black and white image with plotted them over the original image with a colored grid on his page on Patreon. The photo was taken back in 2011. In the picture are teenagers, taking photos of the turtle. Photo quickly hit the social network Reddit, where users have begun to argue whether the it seems colored because of the color mesh.
According to many users, they first did not even see the colored lines on the image. Others noted that they did not see a grid of red, blue, green, orange and yellow colors and perceive the color. At the same time, some people say that not see the illusion.
According to the photographer Stanislav Rzhevsky, gave comment to the edition "360", which photo color painted illusory, is determined by the color of the plotted grid. Our brain is in normal view the image is not trying to understand the details of the image, which in this case are exactly the colored grid lines.
a Similar effect of an optical illusion, but with a different photo
When the vision discerns the elements of the mesh, they are alien in relation to the picture, and the illusion does not occur. However, if you defocus your eyes, zoom out the image or shift it to the periphery of the visual field (to squint, for example), the perception of a color grid and photography "mixed" paints the picture — said the expert.
In Other words, if you don't look closely at the picture, it would seem that before you is a color photograph. But it is worth a look, and once it becomes clear, what's the catch. The effect of color photos also disappears if you zoom in. Then it becomes clear that the photo — black and white and it just caused the colored lines.
It Should be added that the effect of this optical illusion is achieved not only by using a color grid. Although the mesh really gives the best result, spike also tried to use another way. He struck at the other photos of the colored dots and simple straight horizontal lines. You can see the result below.
Furthermore, the illusion effect can work not only with static images.
Spike decided to repeat the experiment using video. Printed on black-and-white moving image, the grid also causes the brain to think that he perceives a color image.
