Watch as clever optical illusion fools mind into seeing fuel pumps change colour

Optical illusions can be tricky brain teasers as you have to see through the visual traps that have been designed to confuse your mind.

For example, this clever optical illusion uses lines in the background to trick your brain into thinking that the fuel pumps that you see are different colours.

The experts at iCompario put the illusion together that shows four rows of fuel pumps which all appear to be different shades and colours – but that’s not the case.

Michael White and Hans Munker are the psychologists who first demonstrated this effect in the 1960s and 1970s, according to Live Science.

All rows are all the same, but it is the colourful lines which tint the area around them and cause the fuel pumps to look like a different colour.

If you look closely you will see that behind the lines that overlap the pumps, is exactly the same colour as you will see in the first row.
