Richard Wiseman — The skull

This is a nice little video conjuring illusion by psychologist Dick Wiseman of “Quirkology” fame, that is neither edited nor makes use of any CGI effects. I’d recommend stopping the video just after the trick to try to figure out how he did it yourself, then restarting it for the reveal afterward to test your guess. You’ll be surprised how simple it turns out to be. Sheer brilliance, Prof. Wiseman, good show!

About Troythulu

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.

  1. I haven’t been to Quirkology in a long time. It seems like they didn’t update for a while. Just shows how easily the five senses can be deceived, which makes personal testimony (in many cases) as credible as a child.
