Same Color Illusion Category: Shape and Color | Added: June 4, 2009 | 13 comments In this picture the squares marked A and B are exactly the same color, despite the fact that A looks a lot darker than B. The fact that B falls within the shadow of the green object fools the eyes in to perceiving the shades of grey differently. It is in fact very difficult to see these two squares as the same color even when you are told that they are.

Posted by Saru on September 14, 2009 Check it again, if you cut out a section of one of the two squares in a paint program and move it next to the other you will see that they are indeed the same - color #6B6B6B.

Posted by dave on February 22, 2010 i didnt believe it at 1st but its true. make a little square using both thumbs and fore fingers, make it as tiny as possible(2mms sq)and place it in the A square and then the B square an youll see they are indeed the same
Posted by Dark Angel on April 6, 2010 Cool, I didn't believe it so I cut and pasted the squares next to each other and they are the same.
Posted by John on April 6, 2011 Its unbelievable but they do seem to be the same colour.
Posted by allen n lynn on December 16, 2011 The colors are the same. The "B" square is just the invert of the "A" square.
