ONLY eagle-eyed people can quickly spot the empty cup in this amazing optical illusion.
Beneath the chocolate, cream and candy cane flavored hot drinks is a hard-to-spot empty cup – can you spot it in less than 5 seconds?
The image was created by Hungarian artist Gergely Dudas, also known as Dudolf.
Dudolf creates optical illusions as art to challenge people to look very closely at an image.
He did this by making one cup completely different from the others.
But looking at a bunch of cups that appear to be the same makes it harder than you’d first imagine.
This forces the brain to filter out what a harmless challenge might make it look different.
If you’re having trouble finding the red cup, here’s a tip: look to the left edge, then scan up and down.
Some of Dudolf’s other optical illusion artworks are Recognize the Mouse and Recognize the Snake.
dr Speaking to The Sun in 2022, Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and human cognition expert at Goldsmiths University in London, explained that visual puzzles show how our brains process information.
“We usually take perception for granted and rarely think about the hard work that underpins everyday tasks, like seeing a cup of coffee in front of you,” Kuhn said.
“Visual illusions highlight perceptual errors and provide important insights into the hidden neural processes that allow us to see the world around us.”
