    Is it bad that I still don’t believe it, even after clicking the link?
    I think am pathologically suspicious..

    I don’t either – I mean, yes, box B is darker than the rest of the white boxes because of the shadow cast by the green cylinder – but Box A clearly darkens 1 second after moving (might be less than that because my machine is quite old and doesn’t show animation well).

  3. Brainfrog says:

    Ok fine. I wasn’t *wrong* – the first animation is a little dodgy. But further evidence suggests it might be the same.

    The second set of proof just about convinced me, but now I’m looking at the original I’m finding it hard to believe again! Very good illusion.
