Optical illusions can be quite confusing, and they often lead to online debates and viral clips. Such situations usually divide people into two camps, and the discussions become so interesting that they last for a long time. One such optical illusion showed up on YouTube in 2018, showing an image of a woman that was spinning, but in what direction left viewers stumped.
A Captivating Optical Illusion
The public started debating if the lady in the optical illusion was spinning left, right, or both ways, and that soon became a big discussion in the comments section. The image of the woman in the video is composed of dots outlining her head and upper torso. To some, she appeared to be turning clockwise, while others saw her going counter-clockwise. There was also a camp of people saying the woman was spinning in one direction and then suddenly switched to the opposite.
People on YouTube were utterly baffled by the optical illusion and shared their experiences with it. Some were just surprised, while others even felt terrified by the video. Even after multiple views, people couldn’t decide what exactly was going on in the video. One viewer explained that the brain naturally sees the image going clockwise, but after a change in focus, the direction could change.
The Human Brain Is Not Perfect
Optical illusions often confuse people, and viewers of this one still haven’t agreed on what direction the woman is spinning. This shows how an optical illusion can show that humans can make mistakes when the brain is tricked. The designers of illusion images use contrast, brightness, perspective, depth, and afterimages to trick the brain.
In the case of the spinning woman, there are no clear visual cues to let the brain know the direction of rotation. The image doesn’t have a background, and the brain makes sense of it by filling in the missing information. The direction of spin depends on how the brain interprets the ambiguous cues in the image, which is why the results differ.
It’s no secret that people change their hair all the time, whether it’s the color, length, or cut. Celebrities are no exception, but which ones have shocked us with the most drastic changes? Take a look, and maybe one of the styles will inspire you to make a change in your own hairstyle!
Miley Cyrus Goes Dark
Miley is well known for having gone through various phases, from her sweet and innocent Disney days to showing off her wild side with outrageous shows and looks.
We’ve known Miley as a blonde for a while now, but the star decided to go with a dark brown, looking almost black. It goes well with this time of year.
Hayden Panettiere Goes Two-Toned
Hayden Panettiere, best known for her role in Heroes, is the former partner of Vladimir Klichko, and she almost always sports her natural blonde locks.
However, she’s decided to switch things up and go for a “watermelon” style in blonde and pink, and we think it suits her well!
Cardi B Embraces Red
Cardi B has a way of shocking audiences with her music, her way of talking, and how she dresses, so, it’s no wonder she would shock everyone with her choice of style for her locks.
She went with a “Twizzler red” hairstyle back in July, and she pulls it off perfectly. That’s no surprise, though, as Cardi can pull off just about anything.
Tia Mowry Sports Natural Hair
You may know Tia Mowry for her role as one of the twin sisters alongside Tamera Mowry in Disney’s Sister Sister from the 2000s. She has done a few projects since then.
Recently, she decided to go back to her roots, doing a big chop and sporting her naturally curly hair. She called it an “exciting start to a new era,” and we have to agree.
Megan Fox Does Brazen Best
Megan Fox is unstoppable when it comes to crazy fashion and outrageous looks. She and Machine Gun Kelly, her fiancee, do strange best. Their style is always out there, and she isn’t afraid to try new things with her hair, too! She is known for longer black or dark brown locks, but now she sports a bob that’s fiery red, and dare we say it looks incredible.
Hair changes can be seen all the time. It depends on the season, the mood of the particular person, or just changing things up on a whim. Styles can range from outrageous to safe and simple, and celebrities live by that rule every day. They change their locks like they change clothes, and they seem to pull them all off beautifully!
