The human brain is magnificent. All you need are a few seconds of looking at an image or an object and your brain can construct the rest. We look at something or hear something and our brains know how to complete it. We’re so used to making these assumptions that we don’t even notice when it happens. However, in some cases, our brain makes those assumptions only for us to take a second look and realize that it is something completely different. In cases like these, we don’t know whether to scold our minds for jumping to conclusions or to applaud the images that fooled us. We’ll let you decide, by letting you see some of these photos yourself – many of them might require a second look!
The Acoustics Here Are Great
When you become rich and famous, make sure that the way sounds reflect off the walls of your house and reverberate is satisfactory. The way sound performs in any space is what we know as ‘acoustics’, and people tend to underestimate it. Just looking at this living space, it looks like it has great acoustics, doesn’t it?
But wait. Take another look. This isn’t any kind of living space, despite what it might seem like. Yep, that’s the inside of an acoustic guitar. Some things give it away, like the truss rod at the far end, the giant “skylight”, and the pegs coming through the “roof”. It had us fooled for a second, though.
