103-Neon_variant_COL Hypnotic Neon Lights

Neon color spreading effect (#103)

Do you see a pattern of large and small squares? The apparent neon squares seem to pulsate slightly when we concentrate on the image...

This illusion combines 'neon color spreading' with 'illusory contour' effect: not only do you perceive squares where NONE exist, but the squares have also phantom colors!
