This one’s pretty neat because it’s so damn unbelievable:
If you don’t believe it, use a color picker tool (like Color Picker) or crop out the 2 squares with a graphics program.

You mean the background of the squares are the same color, or the text (“A” & “B”) are the same color. The latter I can believe, the former I cannot.
That’s right, they are both 6B6B6B RGB.

If you got windows, capture the screen (ctrl-printscreen) and use paint to cut out each square to compare. It’s the same shade!

How in the world is that possible? The colors to the naked eye are clearly different.

Yeah, that is… something else.

The orignal page of this gives a link to why this is so:
“The visual system is not very good at being a physical light meter, but that is not its purpose. The important task is to break the image information down into meaningful components, and thereby perceive the nature of the objects in view.”

I tried cutting the two section and got the same shades. If your going to look at the picture, they’re really far more different!
I hardly can’t believe this, but is true!
