Tricky optical illusion asks players to determine the color of the purse
Optical illusions are made to confuse your mind.
We’ve seen a lot of them trick our brains in recent weeks, colorful spots with bewildering shapes.
Now the creators of Gala Spins just shared a new puzzle – and this one is really tricky.
In the image, almost two-thirds of those surveyed (around 63%) said they saw a green handbag, while 37% thought it was blue.
So why do people see the picture in a different light? Fortunately, there is an explanation for this.
Bhavin Shah, optometrist at Central Vision Opticians, said: “In this case, there is not enough information or context on the object.
“The brain must therefore apply its own processing and create a reality that it feels is correct.”
Bhavin added, “Most optical illusions work because our eyes pick up optical information from light.
“However, there are many potential sources of error that can cause the brain to interpret something differently.
“Optical illusions happen when there isn’t enough context, so our brains fill in the gaps, which means different people see different things.”
So, do you see a blue or green handbag? Let us know in the comments below!

Karina Adrian, Head of Brand Marketing and Partnerships at Gala Spins, said: “What we love about optical illusions is the uniqueness of what people see and the way they allow people to give their own touch to things.
“Different people will look at the same picture and see something completely different, all because our eyes and our brains interpret what is presented to them in different ways.
“We hope our illusions lead the British to scratch their heads and debate what the pictures show.”
