Why wheels appear to move backwards
Published at : 12 Dec 2020
I little bit of insight into why it appears that wheels move backwards at high speeds. This is also known as the wagon wheel effect and it is a product of the limitations of the human brain. We can only take snapshots of the world around us at a particular speed. Our brain tries to piece together these snapshots to make them make sense and that can lead to some odd illusions.
Comment below any other tech/science related topics you'd like me to explain
