    Yeh gotta stare at the thing for like 20-30 seocnds then move the mouse over
    then
    even though picture is GRAY
    but ur eyes suddenly gives this optical illusion that the picture is colored...
    like sky become blue, grass become green for a flash of a second
    then u go
    "WOW THATS CRAZZY"

    ight?
    ;)

    Isn't this similar to when you look at a bright light when you look away you still see the purple afterimage?

    Actually, anyone at an American school should have learned about this in your elementary school science classes.

    If you look at the picture closely, you'll notice the various shades of color in there (it's not just a simple yellow and blue picture). These colors are chosen because they are the opposites of the colors of the original, color photo. When you stare at the colors long enough, you will see their opposites when looking at the right background.

    In my school science class, our experiment was to color the American flag with something like black, green, and yellow (I'm probably wrong about the colors, but it's been a very long time since I was in elementary school). After staring at this flag long enough, we would suddenly look at a white background and blink. Then, we could see a red, white, and blue flag on the white background.

    Yeah, it's pretty much that simple.

    It's similar to when you read a web page whose background is, say, pink - then, after a few minutes of reading it, you go to another webpage whose background is, say, white - the colors on the new web page will seem distorted.

    This is not one of those things that has a screaming ugly ass, hideous looking thing come out after you look at it for a min right? I'm scared...:(

    All of the "amazed" replies are not very convincing.

    I can ruin it good:
    after staring at the dot for 30 seconds move your move over it and then KEEP on staring at the blackdot for another thirty seconds! eventually it goes back ot black anda white and your eyes will have trouble distinguishing colours temporarily

    The picture is not animated, but your brain perceives it as being animated.
