What colours do you see? Are you team #TeamGoldWhite or #TeamBlueBlack?
Who would have thought a seemingly simple question about the colour of a dress can have the web buzzing in confusion- it's just a dress and the colours are easy to see! Everyone should see white and gold...but no! Some people see blue and black! Which is exactly where the debate begins about #TheDress
so what colour is this dress really? The dress is black and blue. The company that makes it has confirmed its color scheme and what does that mean for #teamwhitegold? They're wrong.
According to Today, "Humans perceive object colors based on the light coming from the object and their understanding of the illumination falling on the object. If we are tricked somehow and make the wrong interpretation of illumination then we perceive the colors of objects incorrectly. So if you perceive the lighting to be light and bright, you'll see a blue dress. If you perceive the illumination to be dim, with the dress in shadow, you'll see a white/gold dress."
That ends the debate then- #teamblueblack wins!
