Optical Illusion - Dots

Postby vms » Mon Sep 12, 2016 8:08 pm

There are twelve black dots located at some of the vertices. Can you seem them all? I can see three occasionally, usually two.

"You can’t see them all at once, at least: focus on one, and all the others disappear. This is not at all surprising — the central area of maximum resolution in your eye is very tiny, and your peripheral vision simply isn’t very good."

I git eleven the first time and the same thereafter.

I had to zoom in on the image to check whether there were any black dots there at all, or whether they were all illusory.

There are actual black dots there, but you can only seem some of them simulaneously.

I can only see two, maybe four (but suspect that's flicking back and forward quickly) at a time!
