Process This Negative With Your Brain

Here’s something that’ll blow your mind (sorry that it’s an ad): stare at the colored dots on this girl’s nose for 30 seconds, then quickly look at a white wall or ceiling (or anything pure white) and start blinking rapidly. Congratulations, you just processed a negative with your brain!

P.S. Next time you’re in the photo lab, try doing this trick with your loupe and lightbox to save yourself some test prints.

    The Magnifier tool in Windows 7 also does this trick (albeit, with a few more keystrokes ;)

    Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together.

    Not technically processed with your brain.  It’s cone fatigue.  It happens in the eye.

  • Adam

    Mind. Blown.

  • Mantis

    The idea is to do this with your own brain and eyes…not with a computer!  Very cool!

  • http://twitter.com/splitmind_de Dr. gut. Chris

    Of course changing it to positive is not fun, but I just wanted to point out that it is possible this way ;)

  • Gyan Unlimited

    I tried, its working on real girl too!!

  • Mark Dewdney

    What does it mean if my brain processed it while I was still staring at the dots? (about 14-15 seconds in)

    I didn’t know that either! Works on a Mac too!

    Neat. But the image moves to the left to fast, then fades. At least with my Computer/Brain combination. One of them needs to be tweeked.
