Remember the argument of the color of the dress sometime back?
In viral debates over the dress’ true colour, scientists explained why our brains see objects differently.
Joseph Rizzo, a professor and neuro-ophthalmologist at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, began by explaining that it’s the wavelengths of light reflected into the back of the eye that produce the sensation of colour. The light that reaches our eyes is affected by the material we’re looking at, the ambient light bouncing off the material and some subtle personal differences.
Although the actual color was eventually confirmed as blue and black, the image prompted many discussions, with users debating their opinions on the colour and how they perceived the dress in the photograph as a certain colour.
Now a shoe has popped up online and we are being asked to identify its color. (The shoe above)
So, some see pink and white; others see grey/green. Does this difference say anything significant about us?
The viral debate generated some of the comments that you can read below:
People are arguing what color this shoe is and people are just trying to start up the dress conversation again and it’s annoying
WHAT COLOR IS THIS DAMN SHOE I AM GOING CRAZY AND CAN ONLY SEE BLUE/TEAL AND GREY
What color is the damn shoe yall?
my 7 year old sister really thinks the shoe is grey and the laces are a blue/green color, i’m telling you it is pink and white
Welp, internet… it looks like we have another controversial debate… what color do you see on the shoe?
I said pink and white, others see gray and teal bc they’re wrong
I see grey and green color as do both my boys but they both can see a pinkish tint on the front of the shoe but say basically it’s grey. Which is odd because one of them is left handed. what color do you see?
