TikTok is stunned that this '3D' optical illusion actually works

We love a good optical illusion here at Creative Bloq, and we've seen them come in all forms. We've seen plenty of optical illusions that fool our eyes into seeing movement where there isn't any or seeing colour changes that don't exist. 

But this one's a bit different, this optical illusion claims it can allow us to see an image in 3D – with no need for special 3D glasses. If you stare at the TikTok video below with one eye focusing on each version of the video, you should be able to see the subject appear to come out of the screen in a third image (it looks like we've got another one of our pick of favourite optical illusions).
