Testing Your Wits

Even if you knew it was an optical illusion, could you walk across this bridge?  I couldn’t.

China is well known for its daring, all glass walking bridges, but this one is a real mind blower. To give visitors from all over the world a real treat, China has inserted optical illusion paintings on the floor of its famed Yellow River bridge in Zhongwei, Ningxia. 

I’m not sure if they want to scare the wits out of people, or simply see how many brave souls will walk the bridge. It looks like visitors could easily fall on the river below. Optical illusions are very scary propositions.

I wanted to share this story with you because several tech pubs wrote about this travel destination. See what Mashable had to say. 

The Yellow River is the world’s sixth longest river. 

Would you, or wouldn’t you walk this bridge?
