Here’s why you can’t see all twelve black dots in this optical illusion – The Verge

Try this! At first I could only see four max, I kept trying and got six.  I was about to give up when I noticed a 7th one.  I don’t know how it is done.  I bet the photographers out there know, but is sure is a mystery to me , even after reading the article.   Many hugs.  Let me know how you do.

  1. Weird. I’ve got poor peripheral vision apparently and saw all 12.

  2. That was weird. I saw the dots one by one, but could not see them all at once

    • I never got all of them. I think I got up to five or six at a time. Hugs

  5. the trick is to shrink the picture, or walk away from the picture before looking at it. you will see that there are no dots. your brain creates from.
