A neat example of color break up (blue-yellow)

Color break up happens for example when color components of an image to be displayed are presented in a time sequential manner. How would you demonstrate 'color break up' in a coltrolled way? Micheal Bach published a visual illusion in which the observer is asked to focus on a particular point in the image and moves the test object. In addition, once in a while the test disk changes color for an instant and you can watch what happens (just click on this link:

And there are many more interactive visual illusions presented:

  1. Very interesting.

    Is it known what happens if the orbit is made non-uniform and thus less predictable? For example, chaotically perturbing the motion by increasing degrees.

    If the effect disappears, what's the measurable threshold and what does it depend on?
