This item is a Java simulation depicting a movement-based optical illusion.  It features a black and white circular pattern.  As users increase the speed of rotation, the interior portions of the pattern appear to be spinning in different directions.  

This applet is part of a larger collection of more than 20 simulated optical illusions by the same author.  See Related Materials on this page to link to the full index.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
