Researchers reveal how the Magic Eye puzzle illusions work

Although a 1990s craze, Magic Eye puzzles were first created by scientists to understand depth perception. These dot-filled pictures, known as autostereograms, produced a 3D image when the viewer arranged their eyes a certain way while looking at the 2D pattern. However, not everyone has been able to look at the hidden images, as viewers have to 'diverge' there eyes while focusing on the colourful pattern.
