A mind-boggling optical illusion has made people question their ability to see and comprehend. 

The brainchild of a computer and information science engineer, the 'Confetti' illusion created by David Novick set Twitter abuzz with netizens failing to understand what colours they are seeing. An image showing 12 circles with multi-coloured horizontal stripes surfaced on the net. At first glance, the circles appear red, purple and green. However, upon focusing on it, is revealed that the 12 circles are actually all the same light brown color.

"A three-color confetti illusion with spheres, which appear to be yellowish, reddish, and purpleish but in fact have exactly the same light-brown base color," wrote Mr Novick while sharing the optical illusion on Twitter. He added that shrinking the image would result in an increase in the effect.
