Spinning Red Stripes Optical Illusion

Animation 15 February 2013 0 Comments

Stare at the black dot in the center of this image and watch the red stripes spin.  At first, they should appear to be moving in a clockwise direction.  After a short while, however, they will suddenly appear to reverse and start moving counter-clockwise.

If you lie on the ground and look directly up at a ceiling fan, you will notice the same type of effect.  For a similar effect, you might want to revisit the classic spinning dancer illusion where a dancing woman starts off spinning in one direction and ends up spinning in the opposite direction.
