Great optical illusion!! - May 20, 2008, 11:14 AM

Who is in this picture? Albert Einstein or Marilyn Monroe?

If you think you know the answer, stand up and walk 10 feet away from your computer screen and look again...


This hybrid image was created by Dr. Aude Olivia of MIT. Hybrids combine the low-spatial frequencies of one picture with the high spatial frequencies of another picture producing an image with an interpretation that changes with viewing distance.


For more, see the MIT Hybrid Images gallery (http://cvcl.mit.edu/hybrid_gallery/gallery.html).

What you need is a fatty-boom-batty-blunt. I guarantee you'll see a sailboat, an ocean, and maybe even some big titty mermaids doin' some of that lesbian shit.

You have to follow the instructions: "walk 10 feet away from your computer screen and look again..." You'll see a different picture at 10 feet away, and when you walk towards the computer screen, you will see the first picture again.

Fail.

The duality in this image relies on the visual acuity limitations of the human eye. At close viewing the image on your retina is large enough for you to see the details of Einstein's face, most notable of which is the stache. This is because the larger image spreads over more photoreceptors. Each photoreceptor stimulated by this image contributes to the central processing of the image. The more photoreceptors, the more central processing, and the more detail that is available. When you distance yourself from the computer screen, the image on your retina becomes much smaller, and the details are simply lost. Fewer photoreceptors are stimulated. The image "shrinks" into Monroe.

The same physical characteristic of the eye is what allows very large posters and bilboards to look sharp even though they are printed at very low resolution. If you get up close to a highway bilboard, you'll see the dot matrix instead of a crisp image.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Great explanation, John!

It's really pretty cool to see Marilyn transforming into Einstein as you walk closer to the computer! Although, I'd rather see more detail of her!
