I teach a lesson on perception each year in my IB Theory of Knowledge class that always goes very well (see Videos: Here’s The Simple Theory of Knowledge Lesson On Perception I Did Today). It’s a fast-paced showing of several videos demonstrating elements of perception, and how it can be tricked.
Yesterday I learned about two new videos that could be added to that list.
The first is the latest installment of one of the videos I already show in the lesson — basketball star Kyrie Irving pretending to be an elderly man playing a pick-up game. I’ve embedded the new video below.
The second is a Spanish television station having a woman basketball star impersonate a man in a men’s soccer game.
You’ll want to watch both:
You can watch the soccer video below, or this version might be better.
