Darryn van der Walt sent in this clip along with his explanation. I believe that I already posted similar video month ago, but today I finally learned how this optical illusion mirror works. It might look like an ordinary mirror to you, but it isn’t. Here is Darryn’s explanation: “The image it creates is consisted of tilting 100s of small reflective squares, that display an image that is seen through a video camera. As the user walks towards the mirror the squares start to tilt creating the moving magnified image”. Hope you like it. If you have a spare minute, be sure to check dozen of more interesting video optical illusions inside the “Videos Category“. Enjoy!
