Classy Illusion

I found this on my stumbles on the WWW… and just had to share it with all of you!
The Squares marked A and B are exactly the same colour!!!

To check this out, just copy paste the image into any image software… then cut paste a tiny part of square A into a new window, and then copy paste a tiny part of square B into another window… check out both the colours, you will see that amazingly, unbelievably they are the same!!!

Seeing is Believing? Not quite huh?! 🙂

    reminds me of Ashtavakra commentary when Guruji tells to “tilt your eyes…!”

    Bau, please keep a “send this article to your friends” link on your page na.. I would like to recommend this artcile to many people!

    Anyways, I would do it manually right now.

    can’t digest it!!

  12. Abhi says:

    yes, the only way to *see* that the colors are the same is to take a printout and hide the neighbouring cells with your hands.
    Then, you will *see* that they are indeed the same color.

    The eye adjusts the color perception based on surrounding information that it processes..

    v. nice !

  16. Whats in a name? says:

    Damn! What the ….?
    All my illusions err… concepts err… something is shattered within me 🙂

  17. Prashant says:

    indeed superb bau.
    i initially thought that the effect is because the grren cylinder gives a shadow, but still, it seems quite different thought it isn’t so!! abhi’s explanation sounds ‘sound’.

  18. Nishit says:

    Ya its an illusion………… infact squares A & B are of different colours the solid cylinder’s casts its shadow over B & this makes it to look dark….. but the color tool in paint cant see this shadow phenomena…..he he he he

    Jai Gurudev……………

  19. Harsh says:
