Amazing illusions | Stunning optical illusions collections

Swimming Fish Optical Illusion
Swimming Fish optical illusion was originally created by Emily Knight and Arthur Shapiro. It was a 2007 Finalist in the Best Illusion of
the Year Contest hosted by the Vision Sciences Society. However, there is a guy called Excel Hero, who recreates optical illusion using nothing but Excel.
As he explains, the fish appear to wiggle up and down, but this is again just an illusion all of the little bastards are actually standing still!

Love Test Optical Illusion
Apparently if you concentrate on the center text (focus, don't blur your vision!),
and if you are loved, hearts will skip a beat and disappear! Check it out, it works
like a charm. Another side effect is that the missing rotating heart will turn blue.
Many nice effects in such a simple optical illusion, don't you think?
This animation was created by Mr. Scott Henderson.

These Are Static As Well!
Professor Akiyoshi Kitaoka from Japan, occasionally creates such awesome
optical illusions, it's hard to believe what he tells us is true. One such example
were the running spirals, effect heavily used in examples show you today.
Check out the 4 pictures below. Can you believe they are static? They seem
to rotate like crazy, but only when you move your eyes from one spiral to
another. Try fixing your eyes in one spot if you are nonbeliever, probably the
only way to get those hearts and spirals stay put! Which one did you like the
most? I love the heart ones, but believe the effect works best with the first,
spiral one?!

You Spin Me Right Round
Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M. C. Escher, and can be
seen throughout history from ancient architecture, to modern art.
In short, a tessellation is a collection of figures that are able to fill
the surface with no overlaps and no gaps. Best example of what
I am talking about can be seen in this post. However, today's tessellation
places another interesting effect in center of our attention . Observe the
image below, move your eyes all over it, and you should see the tiles
have started to spin!

Advanced Rollers Optical Illusion
In the beginning we had rollers and snakes, optical illusions born accidentally,
probably as a by-product to some sort of color experiments. Most of them were
invented by a Japanese professor, Akiyoshi Kitaoka. Since then, optical illusion
societies have grown. Just look at our website, for example. Many enthusiasts
began experimenting with existing material. While during the process, some
of them developed their own style, adding great value to this particular topic.
Observe the patterns below, and you may find them somehow relaxing.
Even though posing as static images, they manage to give you that motion
feeling, making our head hurt and eyes spin.
