Trick your Eyes
Is it an optical illusion?  Just move your head or eyes side-by-side and it looks like the bars in the circle are moving. You can use any of the illusions on Eluzions  to engage your teachers or students. (http://eluzions.com/Illusions/) This illusion is called Ouchi.

How about adding one of the optical illusions on your team page as an activity? Change the illusions randomly so your team will want to login to see the next puzzle.



Use the Rotator puzzle to encourage discussions:

Move your head back and forth. What happens?
















Hermannís Grid

Ghostly black patches appear at the white intersections. The illusion was noted by Hermann (1870) while reading a book on sound by Tyndall (1869). Can you see the black dots at the intersections?


Optical illusions were exploited in optical art, and by artists such as Escher and Dali. The variation in the apparent size of the Moon (larger when near the horizon) is an example of a natural illusion that is an optical phenomenon
