Optical illusions show how we see: Beau Lotto on TED.com

Beau Lotto‘s color games puzzle your vision, but they also spotlight what you can’t normally see: how your brain works. This fun, first-hand look at your own versatile sense of sight reveals how evolution tints your perception of what’s really out there. (Recorded at TEDGlobal, July 2009, Oxford, UK. Duration: 16:31)
