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.
