    First post got deleted 'cause I didn't realize the comment section had some not so appropriate comments, found the solo image.

    One of the best optical illusions I've found online. If you practice enough you can actually get it to where you never see the backside of the middle image, and it simply rotates form left to right, without ever spinning in a full circle. It's really cool

    The direction never changes. Depending upon whether the last image you looked at was left or right you see it going a certain direction because of the red and blue lines. Look at the left image, then the middle. It will go the direction the left one looks like it is going. Stare at it for 10 minutes if you wish. it will not change direction in your mind's eye. Now look at the right image for a split second and back to the middle. She's changed. Alter the times looking right or left. It never changes, just our perception it has.

    Very cool optical illusion.

    I couldn't find the solo version. There's a version with just the center image, it's MUCH harder to make it change directions without the 2 other images. I believe it has to do with which eye is currently the dominate eye.

    I just placed a couple of post it notes over the outer images to view the one in the center by itself.

    Me too, except I just used my hands to cover the outer images, ... the center image changes direction even without looking at the outer images.

    Nice. Right now if I face away from the computer and imagine it spinning the other direction, give myself a really good mental image, i can make it change direction, but it can be difficult =p

    Watch the foot.

    (I admit that is hard to do with a naked girl twirling in front of you.)

    If you cover up each side on the first one, it appears to be whichever direction the right or left one is going, depending on which one you look at.

    I saw the second one switch directions, but it almost looks fake.
