    Optical illusion currently "breaking the internet"

    I'll not spoil anything if you haven't seen this yet but basically there is a massive online debate just now about the colour of the dress in this picture:

    People are seeing the same image drastically differently (there is an interesting scientific explanation behind it too) - What colour do you think it is?

    I've no idea how anyone can see it as anything different to pink and yellow.

    This is mental. Seen this on Twitter earlier and clearly seen that it was gold/cream so wasn't going to give the clickbait the pleasure of clicking on it. Seeing it here it's clearly black n blue. Went back to original picture and that is now black n blue too. What's the magic behind it?

    Anyone heard of the spinning cat illusion? It's another one where you can't fathom how anyone can see it differently but if concentrate hard enough it clicks and you can't believe you seen it the other way before.

    I've seen a version of that with a ballerina instead of a cat, it is a weird one because if you try to alter the focus of your vision you can see it change.

    The dress illusion is similar to the Adelson Checkboard. It is all about how your brain changes information it receives from your eyes to make sense of light. Except, where everyone falls for the check-board, the dress seems to produce a 50/50 split of blue/black to white/gold.

    I find the people who have seen it change colour the most interesting - I've only seen it as blue and black every time I look at it.

    Jeezo!!

    The lassies in my work have just been speaking about this - big argument ensues. I think "I've had enough of this, I'm away to have my dinner and check the Bounce for some sanity"

    $#@! this $#@! I'm seeing white and gold now. Was going to ask if the picture changes and it's one big trick but have noticed if you focus on the top band it makes it gold but if on the middle thick band blue. Anyone else see both?
