TEDCEMBER: Optical Illusions Show How We See

Today I watched Beau Lotto's TED talk on how we see. I learnt that we see things differently depending on the context of what we're looking at and depending on what we've previously looked at. There are all sorts of parallels I could draw regarding how context and prior experience affect perception, but I suspect they'd be pretty thin straw men. You can probably tell I didn't find this talk overly inspiring.
