If you were around in the nineties, they surely you know about the Magic Eye stereograms. Remember those optical illusion posters that were hung all over the place. They became so addicting so fast that malls even had dedicated stores where they were sold. Well, we have some good news…they just may be coming back, all thanks to Blake Lively. The famed actress recently posted one of the stereograms to her Instagram account, alongside the comment…
“What a hole decided the world no longer needed these?!?!”
And we are happy she did because they provide hours of fun for all ages.
At first glance, the illusions look like giant posters made out of colorful dots, but once you look closer and have a staring contest with the posters, you soon learn that there is much more to the images than a bunch of dots. Actual pictures pop out at you and they appear to be so real that you will be second guessing whether or not the subject in the illusion is going to reach out and touch you.
So, how did the artists manage to put together a bunch of tiny dots to reveal an image?
Well, it’s based on a whole lot of research that tested what the human eye can detect and is based on depth perception and the ability to view things in three dimensions.
Lively’s post was shared when she was on a mission to promote her movie, “The Shallows,” and the illusion is certainly fitting for the actresses latest film.
