A town in Iceland is hoping a new kind of crosswalk, an optical illusion that appears to float above the road, will shock people into paying attention.

According to MyModernMet, the optical illusion is extremely realistic and even shifts perspectives depending on how you look at it. This has a lot of people not just using it to cross the street, but also as a photo backdrop, showing themselves also seemingly “floating” on the crosswalk.

So far no word on if it has increased safety to pedestrians crossing the road in the area.
