What to do & see

The red cogwheel rotates, but does it rotate smoothely? Physically, the rotation is perfectly smooth as you can confirm by making parts of the arrangement transparent, using the vertical sliders left and right. However it seemingly jolts ever so often. Depending on conditions (contrast to the background, and between the stationary and rotating part) other percepts arise.

You can select between 3 different presets or adjust colours, transparency, and motion speed.

Comment

This effect shows that there are still new illusions out there to be discovered and/or formally described. As Peter van der Helm discusses in his paper (2007), the effects here are probably caused by colour assimilation and/or ambiguous figure-ground segregation.
