12 Fantastic optical illusions which make us look twice at them! no wait, thrice! Or maybe even more than that!

Optical illusions have always been around, from the textbooks for physics to real life to even magic shows, we have always been fascinated by illusions of diverse kinds. Some illusions are simple and give the real picture away on close notice while some illusions actually shatter the perception of reality you might have. Optical illusions are interesting and always evoke a sense of mystery. The best-known illusions have always been talked about and given that we all come across small wallpapers and updates on pictures with optical illusions from time to time, we know that the fascination towards these have not changed in the least.


Optical illusions are caused by the way light filters in on a certain picture or by the clever use of light in photography or the clever placement of objects are responsible for causing optical illusions. What’s more is that these illusions can also be created by clever use of paints and designs, zig-zags, puzzling shapes and differently sized objects can be combined to create the best optical illusions. Check out the best optical illusions you might have ever seen.
