There is a big gap between human vision and computer vision. We as humans only need 13 milliseconds to perceive an image. Most digital cameras record with a framerate of 25 frames per second. Optic deception is a project which shows the differences in perception. The circles are driven by motors which spin around 75 rotations per second. Due to the speed, you are only able to perceive the colors when you look through a camera. When you look at the circles in real life you only perceive a stroboscopic light in one singular color.
