Motion Induced Blindness

This is fascinating and very scary in its implications.mib

It also goes a long way toward explaining why car drivers fail to see motorcycles.

I can’t replicate the flash graphic here, so you need to click on the image and it will take you to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s web site.

The essence of it is that if you stare at the blinking green dot in the center of the field, the yellow peripheral dots will appear to vanish even though they are constantly on.

Click it and try it.
