2014 Kia Cadenza: An Optical Illusion in the Touchscreen, Maybe
January 8, 2014
Our 2014 Kia Cadenza Limited has a pretty nifty touchscreen audio unit. In fact, the clean graphics remind me of our long-gone 2009 Nissan GT-R. The reason for this post, however, is that while looking at the screen, it appears the dots in the background subtly dance or move to the music. It was my intention to show you this little trick, that is, until I reviewed the video.
After watching the video, I'm baffled. Relative to the text in front of the dots, the dots don't appear to move at all. To be sure, I went back out to the car and watched the dots again. I'd swear they move. Is this some sort of optical illusion? Has anybody else with a Cadenza witnessed the dancing dots? Please say you've seen the dancing dots.
Here are two videos trying to document the dots. I'm puzzled.
