    Wow - I hadn't realised 10.3.9 activated Core Image but my desktop seems to be rippling :p

    Very clever image - what it would do to your eyes as a desktop image, I dread to think!

    If you you stare at this image long enough you should see a giraffe!

    so i am guessing that it is an effect caused when you move your eyes?? if i focus in on one part the rippling stops in my peherial vision.... but what do i know

    My goodness, I'm so glad it wasn't some ugly demon or something. You never know what will show up when people tell you to stare at something. I've learned my lesson. :(

    Yep, if your eyes stop moving, the illusion completely stops. It has to do with color/shape/spacial relationships.

    You guys who posted illusion images...what site did you go to get them? I have seen these both on a site a long time ago (along with many, many more) and have since not been able to re-locate it.

    I think it was a Japanese site of sorts.

    This one is pretty good:

    or, do a google search for optical illusions. My medical neuro class covered vision and there are piles of optical tricks for your brain.

    Here's an entire site devoted to optical illusions, if you're interested in seeing more of them.

    EDIT: Dang, and now I see that someone already posted a link to this... argh.

    I think here is where the two images linked on this page come from. This guy's amazing, and he's been doing it for years.

    It's interesting, too, that if you look at your computer screen from off-angle, as you approach a glancing incidence, the appearance of motion will disappear (that is, the more you are not looking at it head-on, the less you can see the motion). Works if viewed at an off-angle top/down as well as left/right. Doesn't work for the giraffe, though! ;)

    It's shots like these that really make me worry about my brain-eyeball connection. :(

    I don't think images like that are suitable for the general pubic... :D

    Sry couldn't resist. Reminds of that test where you're shown a close-up of either the crease at the elbow, the top of her butt or the top of her boobs and you've got to figure out which is which...
