The Internet Tries to Make Sense of What Colour This Dress Actually Is (23 pics)

Posted in INTERESTING       27 Feb 2015       12893       8

When I first looked at it twenty minutes ago, I saw white and gold, now I see black and blue. WHAT IS GOING ON?!

 

It started when someone uploaded a picture of the dress on tumblr and planted the seeds of doubt.

People panicked.

Science was attemped.

Conspiracies became apparent.

Played out memes were given second breath.
But let’s solve this riddle once and for all.

This is the dress.

It comes in several colors. But none of them are white and gold (I am shocked as well).

Here is the explanation.

And here's an explanation from SCIENCE

So, basically, "blue cones" are what's responsible for people seeing these 3 variations...

I see light blue and golden / yellow. I know it's blue and black though.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

This doesn't explain the big color contrast in the gold/black part of the dress.

You can't have as many shade of black as shade of gold.

That online store argument doesn't prove shit.

I've seen several versions of this picture now, and all have different colors. And I'm not even drunk yet.

colors get altered in the presence shade or light.

you don't need science to explain it... you need common sense and a little experience. *sheesh*
