Magician Can Guess The Card You're Thinking About Through This Video

Our eyes are too slow and our brains are too easily fooled. Just watch this video where Illusionist Eric Leclerc shows off by reading our minds through a simple YouTube video. He plays around with us in the beginning but at the end, he just jumped through the computer screen to peer into our wrinkled brain.


Watching This Video Makes You Hallucinate Without Any Drugs

The Illusion Lab created a fun illusion video that can cause some serious hallucinogenic effects just from watching the video. It only lasts for a little while, but you’ll definitely feel as if the world around you is alive like you’ve never seen it before.


The Beautiful Surreal Worlds Of Erik Johansson

Photographer and retouch artist Erik Johansson produces some remarkable illusions. If you are curious about how his latest image — entitled Landfall – was put together then this video has a lot of the answers as Erik takes us through the process from concept to completion.


Not Everyone Sees The Same Colour When They Stare At This Spinning Disk

The spinning disk below is a little seizure-inducing, but it’s a lot of fun because not everyone sees the same colour when it spins. Some people see green, others see yellow, a few see red, while some see no colour at all.

It’s always fun to play a trick on your eyes. They’re so easily fooled! Take this illusion, for example. It’s an old favourite. If you stare at the image long enough, the colours in the picture start fading away and eventually disappear. The colourful blobs shrink like evaporating water puddles

Watch A Straight Rod Somehow Pass Through A Curved Hole Without Bending

It’s a magic trick! It’s sorcery! How else can you explain that stick being able to pass through that curved hole? If you showed me the two pieces separately, I would have never imagined them to actually fit one another so seamlessly.


Whoa, This Biker Looks Like He's Trapped Inside A Video Game Level

What a tricky mind trip. Although it looks like this fixed gear biker is playing a video game or stuck inside a M.C. Escher drawing or a part of an optical illusion, he’s actually riding on a real bike course made with real ramps and doing real jumps. It just looks crazy from our perspective


Wizard Juggler Tricks People's Minds With A Ring Of Illusions

French juggler Lindzee Poi is a wizard who basically turns a set of juggling rings into a mind warping finger dance. Poi is so fluid that your mind really thinks the rings are moving on their own. I love it when my brain can’t process what’s in front of it.
