Motion Induced Blindness test

What to see
Below you see a rotating array of blue crosses and 3 yellow dots. Now fixate on the centre (watch the flashing green spot).
Note that the yellow spots disappear once in a while: singly, in pairs or all three simultaneously. In reality, the 3 yellow spots
are continuously present, honest!

Martin the mind boggles, if you fix your gaze on one dot it never dissappears What is this testing you for ? & why does it work this way, ?. I have noticed that the print media is getting smaller & smaller & it should really be getting bigger as our eyesight deteriorates as we get older.They are on a continuous quest trying to squeeze a quart into a pint bottle. Some ads in Model Boats require a magnifying glass to read, I wonder who they think their customers are, Mick B.

Mick i know what you mean about small ads etc. I feel but could be wrong, that often ads are adjusted to fit a space so can be hard to read at times. John.
