For any one late to this discussion it might seem confusing.

We started off discussing the Growing/Shrinking head illusion. We talked about where to buy one and how to present it.

At one point we started discussing "Seeing Eye Images". We talked about the difficulty of seeing the image if you have bad vision and the difference between seeing the images cross-eyed vs wall-eyed.

These are two totally different illusions. The Growing head illusion is a spiral that you spin with a motor. The Seeing Eye images are posters that you have to stare at in a special way to see the 3D image.

I have difficulty seeing and experiencing the Growing and Shrinking Head illusion, because I have vision astigmatism.

Those that are color blind and/or astigmatism have difficultly seeing the posters Eye Images.

I,ve also discovered if the electric drill or screwdriver you're using is going too fast the effect is greatly weakened.

I have never been able to see the Magic Eye images but am pleased to report that, thanks to the wonders of YouTube, Kalver's head shrinking illusion actually works for me.

Hahahaha. That is awesome. Honestly never seen that before. I have always been able to see the magic eye images and the one with Jesus etc, but I have never seen it applied like that before.

Fantastic.

I have the head shrinker and thought it would be better for a large crowd if I made a bigger one. I made a 4 foot circle with the same spiral pattern. It was pretty nice looking,
Made it on the CNC and had the spiral made out of sign vinyl. What a waste of time, didn't seem to make any difference. Trial and error error error!!!
