Dress, which "boil the brains", and other amazing illusions


Here it is, the power of the Internet: millions of users around the world (and our country is no exception) got involved in insane disputes about what color this dress is: white with gold or blue with black.


The media immediately became interested in the issue, putting forward theories and attracting experts. What just do not learn from their articles - just right to write scientific treatises!

Independent, for example, assures that much can be said about each of us depending on the answer. For example, what vision we have is predominant - day or night. The same explains Gazeta.ru in detail.

Yahoo Tech has cited as many as 6 theories explaining the difference in perception of this damned dress: from a banal rally to color blindness.
