This Is Officially The Best Optical Illusion Of The Year
The "Dynamic Ebbinghaus" has been named the Neural Correlate Society's best illusion of the year.
Some of the other illusions that made the Top 10 were: "A Turn in the Road".
The "Pigeon-Neck Illusion" generates apparent reverse motion – similar to the action of a pigeon's neck when it walks.
The "Rotating McThatcher Illusion" demonstrates the fact our unconscious ability to lipread "is influenced by processes considered idiosyncratic to face perception".
"Infinite Maze" is a Pac-man-inspired video game for Android built around an optical illusion.
Arguably the best illusion recognised by the society in recent years was the 2010 winner – "Impossible motion: magnet-like slopes".
