Letter IIn this page you can test your visual ability with interactive optical illusion challenges. Each month, we will post new puzzling illusions to solve and/or to comtemplate: ambiguous and completion figures, impossible figures, hidden objects, illusions involving colors, geometric illusions, illusory moving patterns, verbal illusions and paradoxes. All these illusions were adapted/designed by the authors with the aim of allowing the visitor/reader to:
discover how we perceive things,
test and enhance the power of observation and critical thinking skills,
improve mental flexibility,
have fun being deceived by puzzling visual challenges.

You can use the SVI feature below in your non-commercial webpage for free as long as you leave the copyright and author's info intact and link to us.
