Likewise! Much more convincing than the usual 2D illustrations where you have to use the eyedropper to verify it.

A nice illustration of the illusion. It would have been even more convincing if the squares had been shown to be completely opaque.

Here is a screen grab from the illusion. I can't see any transparency.

It does appear from that frame that there is none. But this is an illusion, after all.

This is what an optical illusion is. The only thing that is tricking us is our brain.

I copied the image on the link's page and pasted it into Photoshop. I then copied the two squares and moved them to the right. The result is shown below:



Try it for yourself.

And just to verify, I popped this image into Photoshop and placed the hand just to the left of each of the A's and B's and read off the RGB values from the "Info" panel.

As expected, for both A tiles, I read R=G=B=139. But for the left hand B tile (the one still on the board, in the shadow) I read R=B=G=139, while for the right hand B tile (the one off to the side) I get R=G=B=139, which is 'obviously' much higher than 139.  Huh

Conclusion: You can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can only fool Photoshop some of the time.  Wink

Nice!

It is a great confirmation of the remarkable inability of our brain to assess realistically absolute values, yet alone to remember them.

Audiophiles wouldn't like it! Smiley
