The dress

"The dress" is a photograph that became a viral Internet sensation on 26 February 2015, when viewers disagreed over whether the colors of the item of clothing depicted were black and blue or white and gold. The phenomenon revealed differences in human color perception which have been the subject of ongoing scientific investigation in neuroscience and vision science, with a number of papers published in peer-reviewed science journals.

No matter what anybody else says, the dress is black and blue; now, my whole family thinks I'm crazy, but I stand by what I believe in! So if you agree with me that it's black and blue, vote for me!

When I turned my phone slowly away from me and back, I saw a hint of black and blue. Try it! Otherwise, I see gold and white.
