GTP Adventures- Movement after movement
Click here to visit the collection of GTP adventures.
Different gamers have repeatedly reported perceiving things ”levitating”, ”moving” or ”melting” when they look away from the screen (to a stationary point) while or after playing mainly music/dance games such as Guitar Hero or Rock Band.
These experiences are explained by visual motion after-effects (MAE) (waterfall effects) that occur due to the adaptation of the movement of arrows or frets in the game. The visual effects tend to disappear shortly after; although some gamers said that the effects last longer and occur recurrently.
By watching this video you may experience a spiral after-effect.
