Our visual illusions series continues here with installment #15. Enjoy! 

Illusion 1: Concentrate on Dot - Disappearing Ring

I'm always a fan of how the human eye adapts, fills in, cancel out, etc., depending on what you're looking at. In this case, stare at the red dot, and after about 30 seconds the out blue ring will slowly and completely "disappear." Of course the blue ring is still there, your eyes have just totally focused on the red dot and "forgotten" about the blue ring. Makes you wonder about driving on the road. Don't concentrate on just one thing out there...you just might be missing something you want to avoid!

Illusion 2: Scary Room

So this next illusion is quite bizzare. Instead of something dissappearing, rather, something scary appears after you stare at the center of the room for about 30 seconds. Don't blink too much or you'll miss it!

Illusion 3: Moving Text

This next illusion is another example of things moving, yet not really moving. Slowly read the below lines of text...and watch as each line of text behaves as written (ever so slightly).
