Very Cool Illusion

Not sure if this is old/new/whatever, but I just stumbled across it recently.  Instructions from the site:

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink. If you stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating if you're lucky! It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.

I love stuff like this (yes, I was a huge fan of 3–d art back in the day).  I claim zero responsibility for anyone having seizures and/or losing their eyesight as a result of this exercise.  Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

I saw it about 2 or 3 months ago in Persian weblogs. As always someone had found it and others linked to his link :D
