The squares "A" and "B" are the same color.

Checkershadow is one of my all-time favorites.

Here's another one:

Look at it from about 6-8 inches away, then back up to about 6 feet away. The calm and angry faces switch places. No, they don't switch places -- the calm one becomes angry and the angry becomes calm.

Here's one for the ears: Auditory Illusion

I believe it is called a Shepard's scale. After listening to the clip, play it again and the tones sound like they keep ascending.

Stare at the cross in the center and you will see a series of events :

- A circle of purple spots, one spot disappears clockwise.
- A circle of purple spots, one spot turns green clockwise.
- THE GREEN SPOT EATS THE PURPLE ONES !.
- Only the green spot remains, circling around the cross.
