Optic Flow Tutorial

In Optic Flow you will take the role of a driver. While driving down the road, you will be presented by an object on the overhead sign. Your task is to find the matching shapes as they move toward you on the road.

Here is how Optic Flow works:

  1. When you click START you will begin moving along the road. You need to be aware of the road signs that will show in different colours and shapes on the overhead sign such as the yellow triangle below:

  2. Quickly note the shape and colour on the overhead sign and click/touch on the object with the same shape and colour that is placed on another car approaching you or on the side road signs as you see in the example below.

      • The shapes will be the same colour and the backgrounds more distracting.
