This item is an interactive Java simulation depicting a movement-based optical illusion. It features a three-lined pattern on a color wheel, which may be controlled to spin at varying speeds. At slower speeds the pattern appears to become a pentagon or octagon. If spun fast enough, it appears to be a large square. resource is a set of 20 interactive Java simulations that depict optical illusions based on movement. This applet is part of a larger collection of more than 20 simulated optical illusions by the same author.
