You have a “sixth sense” when you can spot the hidden dinosaur in a weird photo

OPTICAL Illusions fans are blown away by this strange photo – but not everyone can see what’s inside.

This isn’t your everyday stone wall.

Can you see what is revealed in it?

If you look closely, the clever trick reveals something else.

Magiceye0who shared the snap explains how to unravel the mystery.

“Hold the screen close to your eyes and slowly move it away until a 3D image appears,” they explain.

It might not work the first time, so be prepared to give it multiple tries.

And some people can’t get it to work at all, so you might need to see if a friend or family member can uncover the hidden image instead.

If you’re ready to give up, we can reveal what it is.

The hidden object is a triceratops dinosaur.

The clever illusion is actually known as an autostereogram.

Some know it as Magic Eye, after a series of books on the trick.

It works by tricking our eyes and brain into seeing a three-dimensional scene in a two-dimensional image.

Initially, you see a lot of 2D patterns repeatedly.

That’s because our brain automatically tells our eyes to focus on the image.

But when you look beyond the obvious and focus behind the 2D pattern, your eyes begin to see things from a different angle.

At this point, the hidden image is revealed when something called stereopsis kicks into action, allowing your brain to create a 3D image instead of the 2D image.

The idea first started with stereograms, which a scientist named Charles Wheatstone discovered in 1838 by combining mirrors and lenses to create the first stereoscope.

The autostereogram came about afterwards in the 1970s thanks to another scientist, Christopher Tyler, who used computers to create the types of optical illusions we see above.

If you want to try even more, there are other autostereogram tricks.

This one is hiding something between a bunch of emoji faces.

There is also another rain theme worth trying.
