Optical illusions have been around for a long time, and the internet has only helped them spread faster. There's just something irresistible about challenging your perceptions, and this is the newest illusion to take the internet by storm. It looks simple enough at first glance, but when you start looking closely, it gets pretty confusing - how many bars are there?
See if you can figure it out below:
If you count the bars using the squares at the bottom, your answer would be eight, but if you count the ridges at the top, it looks like seven bars instead. So which is it? It turns out, the answer is actually six bars. The first five bars are fairly obvious, and the trickery lies between the fifth and sixth bar. There are some extra lines that don't make any real bars, but there is one full bar at the very end to make a total of six.
Don't forget to SHARE this illusion with your family and friends.
