We are all familiar with the Magic Eye pictures of the 1990s.

While they had their pop culture peak back in the day, these trippy illusions have managed to stay in the public eye thanks to many artists who still find the design interesting.

According to a report by The A.V. Club, a Montreal-based band called Suuns used the Magic Eye as the focus for their new song, “C-Thru.”

It is definitely something that will give you a visual trip through its static, abstract patterns. If you keep staring at it, the blurry image will eventually become sharp enough for you to see hidden shapes emerge.

The magic of the Magic Eye illusions lies in its ability to trick your brain into believing there is depth to an otherwise two-dimensional image.

When these two pictures are placed over one another at just the right angle, it causes your brain to see the patterns as though they are following one another and moving – very similar to the way that 3D movies work.

Of course, if you happen to be someone who doesn’t see the patterns and just sees random flat visuals then don’t worry, you’re not the only one. As it turns out, not everyone can perceive these Magic Eye visuals.

However, there are ways in which you could increase your likelihood of seeing these images with techniques such as moving your face closer to the screen until the image becomes blurry and then slowly looking away so it will get clearer.
