Hand/eye coordination/reflex tester

I received this link in an Southern Cross Gliding Club group email. The link takes you to a moving hand/eye coordination and reflex testing puzzle.

To ‘play’ the puzzle, click on the red square and ‘hold’ it. You must drag the red square around in such a manner that you don’t touch any of the moving blue shapes or the black borders. It is said that 18 seconds is a pretty phenomenal result. It’s also suggested that the US Air Force uses the puzzle to test out fighter pilots — and that they are expected to achieve two (2) minutes!

I got to six seconds before having a minor freak-out.

My boss has managed 21 seconds. I know this because he called me to his office to show me!

Have fun.

    22.67 seconds – I think I only got that far because there were some recognisable patterns in the way the blocks move, though.
