Optical Illusion: Red or Green?

This was pretty cool, so decided to post here:

1: If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots will remain only one color, pink.

2: However if you stare at the black ” + ” in the centre, the moving dot turns to green.

3: Now, concentrate on the black ” + ” in the centre of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.

It’s amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don’t disappear. This should be proof enough; we don’t always see what we think we see.

EasyEclipse – Making life easy for Developers

Link: http://www.easyeclipse.org

I went back to Java after quite sometime, and had a tough time installing some plugins (Visual Editor in particular, it is not supported as yet on the current Europa release and only on the previous Callisto) this site is really handy in case you want to get a setup with everything you need already installed. They have bundled everything together and everything just works!

They have also divvied it up into broad areas such as ‘Desktop’, ‘Web’, ‘LAMP’ and so on — targeted towards programmers in that category. Apart from the fact that they have these distros, it was also a great place to find out what were the most useful plugins for development on the eclipse platform. I didn’t even know they have very useful plugins even for things like database management and SVN.

A life saver for people not experts on eclipse, I must say.
