Motion Color Blindness

It has been a while since I posted an optical illusion, but this deserves special credit, as it won the best optical illusion of the year, and offers insight to how our brain perceives and "sees" things.

Just focus on the white point in the center of the video.

So, you certainly saw the color changing dots. But, once the dots start rotating the color changing stops, right?... Actually... WRONG!

The color changing continues even while the dots are moving, but out brain can't handle everything, and so it discards the color information is moving objects outside our focus point.

Just a reminder of how much we really don't see when we look at something!
