    Wait! There was an X in the middle of the screen? Hmmm… I guess I’ll need to watch it again.

    I’ve seen similar illusions.. Pretty nifty.

    I’ve been aware of after-image effects.. but this is kina backwards after-color effects. though it’s related. Very cool.

    re: Cool Afterimage Illusion.

    Okay, that’s cool.

  8. KD Martin says:

    Hop and I had a whole illusion series on Cage Match awhile back. That illusion reminded me of it. If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth visiting.

    I wonder if that declines with age?
