Think outside the box, look at it from a distance !

Aude Oliva (Ph.D.) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Science at MIT, leading the Computational Visual Cognition Laboratory, a research team, part of the Perceptual Science Group.
With her team, they have designed hybrid images since 2007. See the pics below, as you will stand up and go away from your computer, the images will swap for one another.

Hybrid images change interpretation as a function of viewing distance. Hybrids combine the low-spatial frequencies of one picture with the high spatial frequencies of another picture producing an image with an interpretation that changes with viewing distance.

What about Albert Einstein ? Isn't he sexy and good-looking ?
NO ! Take a few steps back, then...
