As far as Internet mind games go, we thought The Dress was the be all and end all. Now, however, there’s a new optical illusion sweeping the web that everyone’s obsessed with.
Aimed to test your photographic memory, the illusion consists of two images each featuring an array of blue and red dots.
The object of the image is for the viewer to be able to recall where the red dots in the top image (see above) sit in relation to the red dots in the image below. If your mind can seamlessly merge them together, you should be able to clearly see a letter emerge from the blue dots.
Once you’ve settled on a letter, head across to Metro to see if you got it right. If you have, it means your part of a very exclusive club – only 1% of the people who take the test are able to correctly identify the letter in question. Neat, huh?
It’s a brain-teaser that has divided Look HQ too, with only one of our staffers being able to read off the right letter. So yep, if you’re looking for a way to kill some time in your workplace this avro, you might want to consider getting your entire office in on this…
Let us know how you get on with the hidden letter illusion @LookMagazine!
