Stereokinetic Phenomenon

The stereokinetic phenomenon is a means of creating 2D images that feel like they are 3D. Typically they are optical illusions that consist of multiple shapes spinning that extrude a 3D shape out of them when both eyes look at them for a period of time.
It is not the same effect as kinetic depth, but the two can be used together to create brain-breaking 3D effects.
