    Default blue/black or white/gold?

    Since this debate has blown up the internet, I wonder if our MS-brains come to any consensus on what we "see".

    So...do you see a blue/black dress or a white/gold dress? This is the original post and picture that started it, so we can evaluate it based on the original photo, not based on any copies which may alter our perception.

    I'll answer the question myself later, as I don't want to influence anyone's opinion.

    Blue/black or white/gold?

    It's very clearly blue and black to me but color in photos can be funny. Wonder why some people are seeing white and gold?

    I saw it as white and gold at first, then it flicked off and came back
    on as blue and black. Could there be a gold and white liner under
    a blue and black dress?

    UPDATE: Now, evry time I click the link, it comes up blue and black.
    ---------- There is some kind of down load trick there...hmmmmm.

    Lol, that's why it's blown up the internet and is the #1 trending topic, because people are just as equally convinced that they are seeing a white/gold dress as you are that it's blue/black.

    And it's not just differences in electronics either, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West both "saw" the same picture differently apparently (and I never thought I'd EVER be quoting a Kardashian in my lifetime, either)!

    Here is the science behind it (but don't read it until after you decide for yourself):

    That is happening to me too now, Sally. Curious if it is an MS thing...

    White/gold.
    Now I will read the science behind it.

    The BBC radio heads were having lots of fun with it last night.

    I see the white gold clearly. The designer says she doesn't even make this dress in white and gold but she is going to!

    Well, I have looked once, very clearly blue and black. Now I will read the "explaining" link.
