Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Optical Camouflage, Science is at it Again

A group from Japan has developed a form of optical camouflage. Optical camouflage is a kind of active camouflage. It allows the viewer to see what is behind the object or person being camouflaged. Click on either picture below to see a video of this technology in action.

Once you check out the way this technology works (at this site) you'll realize the applications are limited. Their paper gives one example of allowing a pilot to see the runway through the floor of the plane allowing for a more intuitive landing.

You'll see below some people think that having a computer desktop that is transparent is also something that might be of interest to the consumers out there. Of course there are better ways to create a transparent desktop than using the technology above. You can see the whole gallery of transparent desktops here.
