This Ugly Rug Is Hiding A Cell Phone You Probably Can’t Find

The latest optical illusion taking the internet by storm is a cell-phone supposedly hidden in a picture of a floral print rug and a plain white table.

The internet has been working tirelessly for several days to locate one of the greatest technological advancements hidden in one of the trickiest optical illusions.

Jeya May Cruz from the Philippines posted an image on Facebook of a floral printed rug with a plain white table sitting at the edge of it and wrote, “Let’s play a game. Look for the cellphone [sic.].”

The post has since been shared more than 18,000 times and garnered more than a 100,000 reactions.

It is so difficult to find the smartphone covered in a similarly patterned floral case, that one commenter gave up and photo-shopped two cell-phones onto the table.

To say that the image is a “brain teaser” is an understatement. If you take the time to really search for the phone without cheating, a headache is surely in your future.

For those who are easily frustrated and can’t handle the mind-boggling photograph, here’s a hint: Look toward the upper right corner. 

If you still couldn’t find it, take a break and try again later. If that doesn’t work, you may want to schedule an appointment with your optometrist.
