Brilliant video explaining “the dress”…

I always saw it as white and gold, but this super video from Rosa Lafer-Sousa proves that it’s all in how the lighting of the scene is perceived. Very simple, very elegant explanation.

There is a side by side shot where you see both versions at once. I paused the video and checked the colours of the dress with Apple’s excellent colour picker. It’s true! The¬†identical dress can be perceived in (at least) two ways, dependent on the background.
