Squares A and B are exactly the same shade of grey.
yes, really :)

This is a remake I put together of the Checker shadow illusion published by Edward H. Adelson, Professor of Vision Science at MIT in 1995

It's a very simple illusion and a favorite of mine. It was surprisingly easy to get the right balance of light to achieve it this time around.

This is a fantastic version of the checkershadow illusion. Did you also make a comparison image that shows that A and B are the same?

Dude, this is by far the best Shadow illusion I've found with Google.
