I haven’t posted a new Quirkology video for a long time because they are a tad tricky to create. However, about a month ago I came across a nice use of the blind spot by bored lawyers. Apparently during a tedious court case they occasionally pass the time by covering one eye, looking at the judge with the other eye, and seeing if they can make the head of the witness disappear!
This got me thinking, and after a bit of experimentation I came up with the following video….
Hope that you like it. Getting the black bar bit to work was problematic, but we got there in the end (and my thanks to everyone involved in the creation, filming, editing and testing process, including Caroline, Emma, Sarah, Peter, William and Ringo).
When researching the idea I came across several nice blind spot demos, but my favourite allows you to map the actual size and shape of your blind spot. Have fun playing with it here.
