Nothing spectacular but it shows exactly how this works.
All 3 of the central models in these gifs are rotating anti-clockwise.
Only the orbiting sphere is rotating on a seperate axis and is used to help direction.
Using the second image posted i was able to get a similar effect as the original animated gif, but the ball ALWAYS carried going in the same
direction, i could only change the main shapes direction.
Ive followed this thread, and while people are seeing and doing what i am able to do, others say this is an optical illusion???
If i concentrate, i am able to spin it back and forth, sometimes only going for a split second in each direction.
Obviously this animated gif has a limited number of frames, but i think this optical illusion is not in the picture/gif but in our brains, something
to do with which part of the brain is processing it, left or right.
