Triangle is Only in Your Mind

Hmm, apparently you weren’t as enthusiastic as I was concerning my previous post. I don’t see why, but I’m an individual, and you are the deciding jury. Those rating stars keep me informed about your likes and dislikes, handy – ayeh? Probably you won’t adore this one neither, but let me tell you that if you stop for second, and think this through the illusion you see today isn’t so bad. It’s obvious, those kiwis are sliced in a way to show a ghost triangle. Our brain is trained to automatically recognize simple objects such as: spheres, triangles and similar. This is why you aren’t really surprised when your brain recognizes the missing triangle. Well, if the brain wasn’t so developed all we would see is 3 slices of kiwi, and some missing parts on them. Think about it. BTW, I’m thrilled that more and more logo pictures appear in our comment section. Also, I found an awesome “adultish” optical illusion for tomorrow… something simmilar to this. Stay tuned!

  1. I don’t care if the triangle is in my mind just as long as the kiwi fruit ends up in my salad. Mmmm.

  2. It’s so simple, yet so interesting! It really shows how complex the human brain is. I like it!

  3. Great one today.
    I like these, simple and effective.
    It took me a few seconds to recognise the triangle but once I looked closely it came to me. (always the simple ones get me)

  4. This is classic gestalt psychology, in which the total effect of an image is greater than the sum of its parts.

  5. Well I don’t believe you assumed right Vurdlak, this one has nothing to do with yesterdays. First, it is such a beautiful picture and its amazing how the first thing I always see is a triangle even knowing there really isn’t any.

  6. That was cute I liked it although it took me a min or two. Trying to figure out a puzzle at 2am maybe not the smartest idea…

  7. Dear Mr. Vurdiak (is that your name?) –

    Re the three kiwis — the top and right-hand ones are partly shadowed, so the triangle is reinforced. Indeed we do see (perceive) it, as we also see three individual triangles if we view the three fruit slices singly. So what’s the big deal?

    Keep up your daily good work — your viewers enjoy it!

  8. hey this is funny, first i thought somebody has put a triangle of paper over the fruits^^

    (Sorry for my bad english…)

  9. On the contrary, the simplicity of this illusion makes it much worthy for us, “the Jury” to adore. If anything the first thing you noticed would be the triangle but our well developed brains would in no time figure out the solution. Still I’m rating this a four out of five…

  10. I disagree with the validity of the illusion.
    The area within the kiwis has been clearly whitened so that it stands out ; therefore, the triangle really does exist?
    If you set this up yourself on a consistently coloured surface, it wouldn’t be quite as effective!

  11. I think these ones are really good coz they are simple but really cool
    I love this website!
    I am constantly telling my friends about all these optical illusions
