To me it's white and gold :)
It's blue and black, not because my eyes say so, because the color recognition software says what color the pixels on my display are lighting up.

What the fuck people? Are you trolling or what? It's obviously white and gold. The way the picture was taken makes it look like that. That is how our eyes picks the color of this particular picture. What the dress looks like in person is a different story.

808nm is possible to see in the darkest of conditions if you stay in the dark for a while. It appears a grey color though.

And @Electro-No we're not trolling I seriously see blue and black I'm not lying at all I think you guys seem weird for seeing white and gold.

Haha, yeah that's the weird thing about it. When I first saw it, it was clearly white and gold to me, but within the few hours I saw it it switched many times from white and gold to black and blue. It's not an instant switch, moreover a "wait a minute... That's black, not gold!" This morning it's white and gold for me:)

Video explained what i see and where i see the difference. its really strange in the way which our brains work with light and shadows.

I have got to agree the last one is the best by far!

OK, I found a source that knows what dress it is, and, its blue and black:



Pic of it in better lighting.

:D


For everyone who initially saw it as white and gold for example (me), its crazy....But, I did later start seeing it as light blue/black later....but not dark blue/black.

I don't think so. Our eyes are all programmed by roughly the same genetic instructions. A cone cell is a cone cell. If they varied, you'd have reports of people seeing objects change color as they moved across the field of vision.
There wasn't a word for the color blue in most early recorded history. There is debate that since no word existed, the color didn't exist (as it wasn't defined, you wouldn't associate it with being a unique color). In Homer's writings, he described the ocean as "wine-dark" colored, for example.

LOL

I also remember reading that descriptions of people with dark purple hair, etc...implied to many researchers that most Greeks were actually carrying some color blindness genes.
