Just seen this and love it…..

Does it work for you?


  1. Worked for me – the dot pattern was making waves as the rolling thing passed them. Not a very strong effect, but then again, I’m tired and can’t focus my eyes too well at the moment. 馃榾

  2. What the bleep am I supposed to see? A stupid cylinder being rolled from side to side? So bleeping what? Is this part of a sinister secret conspiracy by evil alien hippopotamuses to make me waste 46 seconds of my life, just to prevent me from helping to build a better society?

  3. I saw nothing except a commercial I had to X out-replayed and sorry,still saw nothing. By the way, I thought i was no longer a member due to your change in comment area and site in general & stupidly signed up again-please don’t send me double emails. Thanks so much.

  4. Yup, although I have to say it took sharp eyesight to see it. Without my glasses on, without looking closely, without blinking to clear my eyes up and make sure I was focused on the rolling thing but without staring too hard at it, I could see the dot pattern “waving” around.

    I wonder how it’d work with bigger dots. Maybe just a couple rows of them in a bigger size.

  5. Saw it. The trick is NOT to look at the dots but to rather focus only on the rolling object. Its difficult as the eyes naturally want to go up to the dots when something happens. You have to catch the motion in your peripheral vision.

  6. Yes, an interesting effect of false movement in the peripheral vision. The tricky bit is to keep focused on the cylinder, and not glance up at the dots when they seem to move.

  7. I agree with the ads screwing it up. Was almost EXACTLY the size of the rolling object we were supposed to watch.

    I’m trying to determine if the perceived movement goes from light to dark or dark to light? It’s hard because you can’t actually look at it or the effect is lost. Seems to me like it goes towards the dark but the overall motion is perpendicular to the two dots. Weird.

  8. Did work for me but only at the first part. For people they doesnt see anything weird: Try again with tired eyes. Be relaxed. The dots will move only a bit, nearly from the rolling object.

  9. It was a little hard to totally focus on the rolling object, but when i could the dots moved in a wave like pattern. I think that the people who cannot see it aren’t concentrating only on the rolling object!

    1. If I concentrate only on the rolling object, I can’t see the dots moving because I’m not looking at them. So that doesn’t work either.

  10. It sort of worked for me but I thought it was a bit weak because the rolling object was so stop and start in its motion. If it had been a smooth rolling motion at a constant speed or even better 2 or 3 objects rolling in succession I think it would have worked much better.

  11. Did the dots seem to be moving down towards the rolling object for anyone? They did for me at first. I kinda saw the wave effect. Then when the guy turned the page the other way up, it stopped working. Why did he start moving the object slower?!

  12. This illusion seems to work because our eyes try to accomodate not only the rolling candle but also the offset dots in our peripheral vision. We can’t quite see both without the ‘movement’. Have to try different variations of this where dots are spaced further apart, closer together, in a straight line, and also if their seems to be any difference in perceived movement between early morning and late evening? Amazing how our minds eye can be tricked.

    Hay un incremento evidente de los partos durante la luna creciente en el mes de dias mas cortos respecto al mes de dias mas largos 驴efecto simbolico, como el de un cuadro shockeante colgado en hospitales? 贸 serotonina por cambio de luminosidad, tambien se nota una equiparacion de lunas creciente y menguante con las demas fases en el mes de dias de duradion promedio o intermedia.
    Ademas de que para 100 incidentes de raiz sicologica reportados en diarios se observa que se duplican los incidentes a mediados del mes siguiente al dia mas corto del a帽o desde luna nueva a luna llena. Tambien hay una relacion del 30% sobre el azar de la fase de la luna de la concepcion y el temperamento.
    La posici贸n de los planetas en el momento del nacimiento es determinante de la personalidad.
    Es la conclusi贸n que se obtiene del estudio cient铆fico realizado por la Universidad de Vanderbilt que de forma no intencional, lleg贸 a esa conclusi贸n tras analizar diversas hip贸tesis con el fin de desmentirlas. Inicialmente el objetivo era desde el escepticismo, probar que no era cierto, pero result贸 verdadero. Adem谩s, llegaron mas lejos: 鈥淟legaron a medir los cambios funcionales en el cerebro, como consecuencia de las posiciones planetarias en el momento del nacimiento.鈥

    El estudio ha sido publicado por la revista Nature Neuroscience.

    Este estudio, fue realizado con ratones e inicialmente mostr贸, que aquellos que hab铆an nacido en invierno mostraban una continua tendencia consistente en un ralentizamiento de su actividad durante el d铆a. De esa forma ser铆an m谩s sensibles al denominado Desorden afectivo estacional. Textualmente citamos:

    鈥淭he study was carried out by Professor of Biological Sciences Douglas McMahon, graduate student Chris Ciarleglio, post-doctoral fellow Karen Gamble and two additional undergraduate
    los genes activados cierto mes para causar determinado temperamento en humanos durante un a帽o de luminosidad intermedia principalmente, se activan en
    el mes que se aleja del verano en los a帽os de luminosidad media_alta y en el que le sigue en los a帽os de luminosidad m谩xima.

  14. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures
    aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a
    linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

  15. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all of
    your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?

    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome web site!
