Visual Awareness "Game" – Selective Looking

Quick post today…Follow this link to a fun little experiment that was featured on Dateline NBC two and a half years ago. You will need Java to run the video.

Instructions from the developers:
“When viewing the video, try to count the total number of times that the people wearing white pass the basketball. Do not count the passes made by the people wearing black. When you’re done, visit the “inattentional blindness” link for more information. “

After you count the passes: Go ahead and watch the video again without focusing on the passes, the folks in white, or the counting. See anything you may have missed the first time around?

Your older kids will be floored by the tricks our minds play on us. Peruse the other experiments as well, for more science fun.
