Can You Find The Hidden Cellphone In This Carpet?

Everyone loves puzzles, or at least they should. Puzzles are fun, and they are actually proven to help slow down mental decline. With the advent of the internet, puzzle solving has become a shared group activity. People release brain teasers online that go viral, and the internet is set ablaze with differing opinions on what the solution is. Remember the dress that people thought were different colors? That argument tore entire families apart! Well last week someone dropped her phone on a floral patterned carpet. She was extremely surprised at how hard it was to locate it, so she took and picture and presented it to the internet. The internet went crazy with people who couldn’t find it. Can you?

Here is the original picture she sent out. Can’t find it yet? Don’t worry, we’ll help you.

The pattern of the phone case isn’t quite the same, but it’s close enough to make you scan right over it.

Even this close up it’s still hard to tell the where the carpet ends and the phone begins.

This picture has been stumping the internet for about a week now, and it shows no signs of slowing down. We asked everyone in our office whether they could find this, and only 1 or 2 were able to. It’s definitely a challenge, and nothing gets the internet fired up like a good challenge or debate.
