At Creative Bloq we’re obsessed with optical illusions – and we know that you lot are, too. We’re always on the lookout for the latest mind-bending images and eye-tricking videos to share, and the past few months have thrown up some real standouts.

We already did a quick round-up of the best optical illusions we’d seen in 2022 back in May, but these latest ones might just have them beaten. From still pictures that move to balls that somehow roll uphill, these illusions will have you seriously second-guessing your own brain.

When he's not scouting out news on the latest gadgets, he likes to play around with film cameras that were manufactured before he was born. To that end, he never goes anywhere without his Olympus XA2, loaded with a fresh roll of Kodak (Gold 200 is the best, since you asked). Jon is a regular contributor to Creative Bloq, and has also written for in Digital Camera World, Black + White Photography Magazine, Photomonitor, Outdoor Photography, Shortlist and probably a few others he's forgetting.
