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.
