Stare at the black dot in the center all the way to the countdown. Keep staring. Keep staring. After the countdown ends, don't move your eyes, at all, just stare at the dot.

Then move the eyes after a while.

Wow! I have seen this kind of illusion before (I'm sure everyone has) but it's never been this effective. I actually downloaded the GIF and looked at it frame by frame to make sure it wasn't cheating.

Neat.

Took me a second to see what I was supposed to be seeing...then I moved my eyes.

(actually, that was on my second go-round. The first time I tried looking at a blank piece of wall to see an after-image, which didn't do ANYTHING. Ta-Da! Wait....)

You know, I'm colorblind and it still worked.

Now if I were completely colorblind and only saw black and white, I'm guessing it would be a different story...
