This hypnotic optical illusion has me stumped

What's not to love about optical illusions, right? They're creative, colourful and almost somehow manage to bend your mind. While we're all for rotating horses and upside-down Elon Musks (to name a couple), there's nothing quite like those static illusions that trick the mind. 

Today's brain-frazzling find is a classic optical illusion design that somehow manages to move, despite being a totally still image. As you scroll past this vibrant design, it becomes wavy – and it's utterly hypnotic. If you're loving this illusion and fancy diving into some other brilliant designs, then make sure you check out our roundup of the best optical illusions.
