“Puzzle brain”: discussing a new optical illusion
MOSCOW, July 20 — RIA Novosti. Twitter users admired the optical illusion presented by the Professor of the University of Texas at El Paso David Novick.
Here’s a second confetti illusion. All the dots in the background are the same color (RGB 248, 205, 172) but are perceived as four different colors. Like all Munker illusions, this is affected by image size. If the illusion isn’t clearly apparent, try shrinking the image. pic.twitter.com/VXjtbIovhm

The picture for the colored horizontal bands are shown several circles that seem multicolored. But actually all the figures are painted in a pale apricot color that can be seen by opening the image to full screen.
Novick called the illusion of “confetti”.
In the comments to the post, some users tried to make similar images.
“Great”! Following your example, I did the same picture with yellow hearts, which seem to be mixed — wrote @AkiyoshiKitaoka.
Magnificent! I have followed your idea and have made a similar image that yellow hearts appear to be different in color. pic.twitter.com/qLTqVebyvg
