AUTOMATIC SHAKE TO ENHANCE FRASER-WILCOX ILLUSIONS

Abstract

The Fraser-Wilcox illusion, which is an optical illusion first found by Fraser and Wilcox in 1979 and later classified into the peripheral drift illusion that was presented in 1997, is the illusion that a disk drawn on a still image looks as if it is rotating. Recently, Kitaoka proposed an optimized Fraser-Wilcox illusion type V in which a stronger illusion can be perceived. This proposal has attracted a great deal of attention, but not everyone can see the illusion. It is well known that the effect of some existing illusions is reinforced by shaking the image by hand, and we therefore developed a system in which a still image displayed on the screen of an ordinary PC can be shaken automatically by using our software. Experimental results demonstrated that the strength of some types of Fraser-Wilcox illusions can be enhanced considerably by using the proposed system.
