WTF color is this?!?!

Ok so there is a debate going around on Buzzfeed right now about what color this dress is. I kid you not, some people see it as Black and Blue while others see it as Gold and White. Apparently it has something to do with the cones in our retinas adjusting to different colors/shades. I personally see it as black and blue, while my dad and a friend of mine see it as gold and white. Curious as to what colors you guys see?

Zoom in on the colors to the far right (so you don't see the dress) then tell me what colors you see...

Tried it a few times and still saw white and gold. I mean I could see why the white could be blue but it's not black and blue.

my suspicion is that the image changes colors on certain screens. I saw a glitch on the image on my iphone earlier but it stayed the same colors.

It's actually black and blue but when I first saw the image earlier in the day it was white and gold. After staring at it for awhile and wondering how anyone was seeing black and blue, it changed colors and now I can't go back.

For those that see white/gold, curious to hear what happens if you follow these instructions...

Humans perceive colors in terms of RGB - red, green, or blue. This is how your monitor/TV works.

Because humans usually have three kinds of cones with different photopsins, which have different response curves and thus respond to variation in colour in different ways, we have trichromatic vision. Being colour blind can change this, and there have been some verified reports of people with four or more types of cones, giving them tetrachromatic vision.

Who cares, I'm sick of seeing it on my facebook feed and having people text me to ask. I swear if we spent as much time worrying about real issues as we do stupid shit like this then humanity wouldn't have any problems.

...., but if we don't ask important questions like this nobody will ever know what it's true color is.


I'm going to guess this is one of those hooker Kardashian shenanigans...

I see white and gold, but they showed it on the Today Show this morning on camera with a chick from London wearing the actual dress and, on HD Camera on my iPad in the bathroom this morning, it is without a doubt black and VERY blue (exactly what's posted just above my post here). They said something about "go back and look later and you'll see it as black and blue"...WTF ever, here on the forum pic at the top of this thread I still see white and gold.
