Can You Find the Cell Phone Hiding in Plain Sight?

Internet optical illusions are the modern day Magic Eye puzzles that stump millions of users who struggle to find what’s hiding in plain sight. We were previously fooled by one that was wedged in a brick wall, and Facebook user Rayana Lira recently shared a photo that’s equally—if not more—difficult.

The image implores you to spot the cell phone hidden within the repeat-patterned rug. It sounds easy enough because you know what to look for, but we gave up after several minutes of fruitless searching.

Try your luck at spotting this illusion. If you’re in need of a place to start, scroll down—we’ve narrowed your focus that’ll hopefully make it easier.

Ready? Here's your last chance to study the picture.

Found it yet? If not, hone your focus in this area:

Here it is! Do you see it?

The floral cell phone cover is so similar to the rug that you'd never give it a second thought.
