Color-adapting category is one of the rare sections on this site that almost
exclusively contains true optical illusions. The effect we showcase most
often, usually makes two parts of a picture seem as if they were of a different
color, even though they’re actually identical. This can often be proved by
removing the contextual background, isolating only the two parts on a colorless
surface. Representative example for this type of illusions would be original
Checkers Illusion. But what would happen if we could produce completely
opposite effect? Check out the animated .gif file below. While the two hearts
are surrounded by appropriate contextually relevant colors, they seem as if they
are of the same color. The moment animation changes and background colors
disappear -illusion stops and we can see the truth that was there the whole time.
Would be interesting to hear why you think this effect occurs?
What could be causing it?!
