Visual Illusion - "Silencing"

From Harvard Vision Lab, a new type of visual illusion that shows we are apparently very bad at noticing changes in a moving object. If, like me, you are too busy to read the paper just check out the amazing videos at the vision labs page and prepare never to trust your two lying eyes again (in the example below, the colors are still changing at the same rate when the object moves - but you can't see it, can you?).
