Motion Silences ~ Color Changing Dots Illusion!

John Matson in SciAm spots Color-Changing Dots Earn Best Illusion of the Year Award...
"Did the dots appear to stop changing color when they began to rotate? If so, give the animation another look: the dots change color throughout, but their spinning motion somehow suppresses the viewer's ability to detect those changes."
