Scintillating Grid Illusion
Category: Moving Images | Added: May 26, 2009 | 10 comments
The scintillating grid illusion is very similar to the Hermann grid illusion and was devised in 1994 by E. Lingelbach. Like the Hermann illusion the image consists of a grid of black squares divided by lighter colored lines, however unlike the Hermann illusion this one has white circles already present at the intersections. This time when you stare at the image the white circles appear to have black dots appearing inside them.

I implemented this illusion on the door panels of my car! I used 1/2" grey vinyl pinstriping and 3/4" white vinyl dots. Make the squares 3" x 3". My door panels are a medium blue and the illusion works perfectly!
