This Optical Illusion Will Completely Wreck Your Brain Because It Simply Does Not Compute

optical illusion brain teaser


The internet is filled with a lot of cool optical illusions. In fact, we’ve shared a lot of them over the years. Ones we that we thought were worthy of your attention because they were truly legit brain teasers.

Heck, I just shared one a couple of weeks ago that was a pretty tough nut to crack. However, that brain teaser had nothing on the optical illusion you are about to view.

You ready? (No, you are not ready.)

Here we go…

Yeah…those semi-curvy diagonal blue bars you see running from left to right? They’re not diagonal at all. They’re completely horizontal. What?!

I know, right? That doesn’t make any sense!

Apparently, according to Metro, if you focus on the small areas between the tiny black and white diamonds, you’ll notice that they are all straight.

Annnnd I’m still not seeing them as horizontal. WHY AM I NOT SEEING IT?!

At least I can take some solace in the fact that the woman who created it, Victoria Skye, even still gets fooled by it.

Look, I even drew completely horizontal lines over this thing and it still looks funky to me.
