This one was a little more difficult for me. Depending on which side of the brain you are using, you can change the direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) the dancer is spinning just by focusing. It helps if you just stare at the feet if you're having trouble.

The Famous Dress

The Famous Dress

If you didn't know, this picture of a dress is going viral all over social media. Depending on the person viewing the photo, they may either see the color of the dress as being black/blue or white/gold. Personally, I see the dress as being black/blue. But if you don't believe me, show this picture to 4 other people and chances are they will see a different color than you! There are many theories that try to explain this incredible phenomenon, however I attached the link to a site I believe to be very informational! Check it out and come up with your own conclusions for this incredible optical illusion!

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
