FACE ILLUSIONS




If you watch the above images from your seat in front of the computer, Mr. Angry is on the left, and Mrs. Calm is on the right.Get up from your seat, and move back. They switch places! "This illusion was created by Dr. Aude Oliva & Philippe G. Schyns, MIT illustrates the ability of the visual system to separate information coming from different spatial frequency channels."




Here is another piece of work created by Dr. Aude Oliva (Ph.D. Brain and Cognitive Sciences, MIT) & Dr. Antonio Torralba (Ph.D. Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory). Again if you watch the above images while seated in front of the computer, you might think that these people are sad. Now get up from your seat & walk a few paces & you will be astonished to see the change in their expressions. Both the images are a great piece of work
