:S I unplugged my webcam... It got it right 2 times out of 4 - with the 2 that were wrong being the image next to the right one...

I've tried covering the webcam on my Mac, being quiet in case it uses speech recognition and even not moving the mouse. It still does it 100%. How!!!

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How the hell does it work??
I've got 4 people to try it and its 4 for 4.
I'm now like a kid with a new toy. I'll try this with the kids tomorrow on the whiteboard.
That is freaky got it exactly right
Lol, got it. All resulting numbers are multiples of 9, and all the images for those numbers are the same each time - I just miscalculated in my head the times mentioned above :P
At first i thought it was a maths thing.
take 12....add them together you get three....three from 12 == 9....
take 15...add them together you get 6....6 from 15.....9
then ... take 99....add them together you get 18....18 from 99.....oh bugger lol
It still got it though!
Yes, this is just a pretty web version of that email that went around a couple of years back that did the same thing.
localzuk got it - its a '9' thing
Lol, I hate those adverts.Originally Posted by WITCH
Yep 9 it is
Exact answer :-
two-digit number [ab]=10*a+b (thus the two digits are a and b), then [ab]-(a+b)=(10a+b)-(a+b)=9a. Therefore your choice only depends on the first digit a.
they put the symbol at every 9 places, so for every a from 1 to 9, there is a symbol at 9a.
You will notice that the same symbol is at 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, and 81 (the possibilities for [ab]-(a+b))
There's only a certain number of numbers that can be produced by following the instructions, all multiples of 9.
The computer is changing the position of the shapes each time so a different shape appears on those numbers each time, making it appear random to you.
It's an old trick, but a good one.
Easier to understand when you see it laid out like this: http://www.mysticalball.com/
Sorry to spoil it, but you did ask

That's what I said! :POriginally Posted by russdev
Bugger, you lot posted while I was double checking my 'research' on google! lol.

What, you didn't take a sample of numbers and use a spreadsheet? :POriginally Posted by maniac
There is always one that has to pick it apart and ruin the magic.
