This is the new optical illusion by a neuro scientist studying the brain, is this image moving, or is everything just moving?
www.bbc.co.uk...
Cheers

Didn't move for me. What does that mean? I'm boring? No creativity?

The left sphere and middle section cone look to be turning into each other like a set of meshed gears... from the eyes of this beholder anyway.

It matters where you look, look at the ball and the cone moves, look at the right background and the ball moves, look at the cone and you can see a clown holding a childs severed arm.

I didn’t see any movement either. It must not work for everyone.

Wonder if screen size matters. I'm on a phone and the movement was very minimal.

Possibly.

I am on a Apple iPad Pro.

something to know is when you view a image on computer screen the screen is updating at 60 frames a second or something like that. It causes your eyes to continually be refocusing which is likely the cause of illusory effect movement.
Go print the same image out and see it it moves still.

Whatever, my eyes find the image very unpleasant to look at.

For me it really moves, no matter what size- I've viewed it on 32" & 24" monitors as well as tiny thumbnail preview- pretty cool! the movement seems to be more apparent on larger screens.

For me, the image parts only move if I look at it briefly, then look just above the image. I see it move a bit, then if I shift my eyes just to the other side, but still looking above the image, it turns a bit more, rinse, repeat.

It clearly just the way the mind+eyes process what its looking at.
Focus on any one point and the "movement" stops.
Unfocus and its back moving.

Yes, I can see it now. At first I just thought it was a picture of female breasts.

Parts of it move depending on what you're looking at, albeit not much movement for me. But it does move. I have to shrink the page size down to really trigger it, though, full screen did not work for me.

What's more awesome is I'm one of those folks where pics like yours warps other things when I look away from the screen. The brain is such a cool contraption.

Yeah your one doesn't move as much, as the other one, maybe it's the colours.

For me they turn inward towards each other but only if I look at the print below the image and not directly at it.

To really see the image appear to move, look at seattlerat's post here and scroll rapidly up and down.

Killer illusion.

Colorblind? Often harder for us to see it like that at first. But we can alter our mind's interpretation and will to see it.
