optical illusion


Do not be surprised if this one takes you a while to figure out.

The optical illusion has got us furrowing our brows and squinting at our screens.

It seems we aren't alone as the Internet is just as perplexed by the innocent hug.

In the photograph, uploaded to Twitter, it shows a man and woman embracing.

However, it is difficult to work out which body and head belongs to who. 

The user, @Boom_likean808 was the first to publish the picture.

It was captioned: "At first I thought he was wearing the heels."

Twitter was quick to react with a whole host of emotions and we can relate!

Some users just couldn't wrap their heads around it. 



The glorious people of Twitter came to the rescue with a highlighter to unravel the illusion. 

Problem solved, it clearly shows that the man isn't wearing the heels, but rather the woman is resting her head on his shoulder.

Did you figure it out? 



Here we go again.

First it was the dress, then it was the flip-flops and now there's another ambiguous photo dividing opinion online.

Twitter users have entered a huge debate over the background of the photo below. 

Some are saying it's a river, while others are adamant it's a wall.

What do you think? 

We can see where the confusion lies.

Either a river or wall would fit nicely into the outdoor picnic scene but the angle makes it difficult to determine. 

And now, just like every optical illusion – everybody's got an opinion. 

Some even got technical about it. 

After a brief office poll, we here at SHEmazing HQ are team wall all the way.

If this generation is haunted by anything, it’s got to be that infamous blue and black/gold and white dress.

And now, just as torn friendships begin to heal, Twitter has released a new chameleon item of clothing to deliver us another near lethal dose of chaos.

After social media user @positivedemi tweeted about a troublesome pair of flip-flops, people began to question whether the shoes involved were black and blue, white and gold, blue and brown or gold and blue.

Just like the dress and the jacket which followed it, the flip-flops have produced conflicting results.



And so – in a statement which has the potential to convince some members of the public that they are actively losing their minds – the company who make the flip-flops have revealed that they are in fact…blue and dark blue.

Go figure!

The Internet has provided us with so many optical illusions in recent months it’s hard to remember what worries we had before Twitter began to torment us.

But – as was seen with the dress that broke the Internet – it’s often the most simple illusions which cause us humans the most bother.

In the box below there’s a white grid covered in grey lines – OK so that much is obvious – but sitting upon those grey lines are TWELVE little black dots.

Now you probably think we’re raving but as you look around the box you’ll begin to see dots you hadn’t seen before, but as you find those new dots the original dots which caught your eye will probably disappear.

According to Cosmopolitan and the guy who kicked off this latest round of torture, your brain simply will not allow you to see all of the dots at once.

So before you really do spend your entire night chasing dots, have one last glance and accept that some mysteries are just not meant to be solved.



Hardly a day passes without being confronted by a photo that will have you questioning pretty much everything; your eyesight, your intellect, the lot.

From the phone which blended perfectly into the carpet to the cigar which couldn't have been more obvious sticking out of a brick wall, we love and loathe these photos in equal measure.

While they sometimes makes us feel like we've had a lobotomy, they are without doubt the perfect way to while away an hour when you're, you know, supposed to be working and whatnot.

And the latest one to take the internet by storm is a real doozie.

Uploaded to Reddit by waterhauler, the image contains a stack of logs… and a cat.

But no one can find the cat, and when they do eventually spot it, it's ALL they can see.

Ladies, it's time to clock off for the afternoon…

Find a cat from pics

OK, give up?

We'll put you out of your misery.


If you're a fan of optical illusions then this is right up your street.

Starbucks is known for constantly spelling customers' names wrong but this mishap really takes the biscuit.

Imgur user cuteDummy recently had an iced coffee in Starbucks but, when she looked at the name it seemed to spell something completely different when looking at the inside of the cup.

While it says 'ANNE' on the outside, it reads 'JULIA' on the inside… Huh.

Does some Starbucks employee have mad illusion skills? Just a coincidence? Who knows? But, we're betting the whole thing is way off and her name is Claire or something… 



This incredible T-Rex video was created by Brusspup who is an illusion specialist. It is called the “hollow face illusion” and works because your brain immediately assumes that a face is convex, rather than concave.

We don’t quite understand how it works – but it’s pretty awesome.
