this is not about rod/cone differences between individuals (which does exist), but about whether or not you percieve the dress as in a shadow.

Sorry for replying yo the first post, but as someone who studies vision I thought I could explain what is going on here. The dress is an example of color constancy and how our mind deals with shadows. Basically:
1) if you see the dress as black and blue, your mind is perceiving the entire picture as overexposed with the dress NOT in a shdow.
2) if you percieve the dress as gold and white, your mind is perceiving the dress as in a shdow, with the rest of the picture NOT overexposed. Because the dress is in a shadow, your mind corrects for the darker images and lightens the dress.
It is in a sense the classic checkboard shadow illusion: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checker_shadow_illusion
Now what makes someone percieve the dress as in a shadow and others as not, I have no clue. For me, it switches back and forth occasionaly, but I tend to see it as gold and white with a few times seeing it as blue and black.
