Optical illusions are all over the internet, but we rarely get to see one appear right before our eyes. There are countless types of optical illusions, from the literal to the physiological, but this take on the classic checkerboard illusion is truly mesmerising to watch. 

We've seen our fair share of mind-bending optical illusions – some that can be explained easier than others. When we see an illusion created right in front of us, for some reason it becomes harder to wrap our heads around what's happening. For me, the more I watch, the less I seem to understand.
