We're suckers for an amazing optical illusion here at Creative Bloq, and oh boy have we found a good one today. Sitting proudly at the top of the 'DesignPorn' Reddit page is this amazing street art that looks like a simple zebra crossing is floating. 

At first glance, it looks as though this street has a futuristic makeover with a crosswalk hovering above the road. In reality, this is just an incredibly well-designed piece of street art in Iceland. While we are totally in awe of the amazing design that's totally transformed this zebra crossing, the internet thinks it might be a major safety hazard. Fancy designing your own optical illusion?
