This year's top illusions

I thought I'd pretty much seen everything in the realm of optical illusions, but I was wrong. I was browsing and I found this year's "Best Visual Illusion of the Year" contest. The top 10 finalists are featured on the web site. Some amazingingly beautiful illusions. I find it hard to imagine how they'd be represented without computer technology. The example pictured above is the initial position of my favorite of the 10. The web site allows animation and selection of different properties. Check it out.
