Quiz: Can You Spot The Circles In This Baffling Optical Illusion?
By Izza Sofia, 11 Aug 2017
A puzzling image called the ‘Coffer Illusion’ that’s surfaced on Facebook is leaving people stumped. Despite its popularity, many people are struggling to solve it within the 30-minute target.
The illusion plays on the idea that the brain is heavily geared towards identifying objects that are grouped to form edges and contours.
In this case, a single set of horizontal lines can either form a circle, or be the intersection between two rectangles. For most people, the grouping into rectangles initially dominates. On closer inspection, however, the 16 circles become clear.
See if you can spot the circles below.
