    Are people blind or is this some very well conceived prank where a bunch of people see white and gold on a black and blue dress?

    What exactly is this thing? Most of my American friends are discussing about colors?

    I just found out about that.

    Its a weird phenomenon where the dress seems to change color, ir at least be different colors in different situations. I've seen it white and gold, blue and gold on my phone and black and blue, blue and gold on my laptop.

    I think someone explained it as pertaining to our eyes. it's weird, but a thing, believe me.

    On my phone, it's White and Gold. But it seems those who say it's blue and black are those viewing it on PCs so later I'll take a look at the damn dress from my PC and see what colour. But really, it's a weird phenomenon.

    I found an article about it here:

    What colour is the dress? White and gold or blue and black? Tumblr photo sparks unlikely online debate | National Post

    I understand that the dress is actually blue and black, but the pic still looks white and gold.

    I just don't get how people are seeing white. I mean, I can see how the grainy pic + the bright light in the back can make the black appear gold, but I just can't get my brain to see white. Even if the white balance is turned way up, it still just looks like a faded blue.

    It's a brightness thing. Turn up the brightness and it'll be white+ gold. Turn back down, black and blue

    You can't really "get it" it just appears dramatically different depending.

    But even though I see it as black, I'm able to see why some people might think its gold. If I focus on certain parts of it, I can see the gold. I can't do anything to see white.

    but yea, somehow it can appear white and gold (one color scheme doesnt even resemble the other) - I saw it once, but only once.

    It IS black and blue in real life. But I see both depending on what screen use. It is the way our eyes are set up. They are filtering out certain common wavelengths of light, in order to process the colours. Apparently, Monet played around with similar trickery in his paintings.

    while it's a lovely tartan, I still wouldn't consider it for a kilt... o.O

    Looks white and gold to me too
    It's a phenomenon called colour constancy.
    So many people cant be lying...use some common sense. We really are seeing white and gold on it.

    It's overexposed. That's why the black looks gold. Notice how this overexposed picture looks.
