I almost hate to ask you this question, but do you think the dress is black & blue or white & gold?
By the way, this all started On Thursday February 26, 2015, a user going by the name of Swiked posted a photo of a striped dress to Tumblr, which was then picked up by BuzzFeed. "Guys please help me — is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the (curse word here) out."

Here is a small portion of the explanation. Light enters the eye through the lens—different wavelengths corresponding to different colors. The light hits the retina in the back of the eye where pigments fire up neural connections to the visual cortex, the part of the brain that processes those signals into an image. Critically, though, that first burst of light is made of whatever wavelengths are illuminating the world, reflecting off whatever you’re looking at. Without you having to worry about it, your brain figures out what color light is bouncing off the thing your eyes are looking at, and essentially subtracts that color from the “real” color of the object. “Our visual system is supposed to throw away information about the illuminant and extract information about the actual reflectance,” says Jay Neitz, a neuroscientist at the University of Washington. “But I’ve studied individual differences in color vision for 30 years, and this is one of the biggest individual differences I’ve ever seen.” (Neitz sees white-and-gold.)Learn more at Wired and other sources of information on the net.
