Contrasting Colors

This multicolored cube has a built-in industrial strength contrast illusion, and the effect is mind numbing.

The brown square in the center top, and the orange square in the center front are exactly the same shade of brown. Don't believe it?

Use the slider bar to darken the background. You will see the two squares in isolation. The top square may seem to change color but it does not. The power of contrast!
