This is not a good example of simultaneous contrast illusion, but to some extents it is. I think for some people who are not color-blind, it may still take a while to figure out the number in the graph. Because of the simultaneous contrast illusion, the colors affect each other, and the green color blends into the red, orange and yellow.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
