Video Mirror

We recently visited the NY Hall of Science in Queens to see the exhibitions there as part of our Pixel by Pixel class and it was pretty fascinating and inspiring. One of the simplest and funniest things that we saw was the use of a mirror, where in one person would stand on the side of a mirror so that you see half of the real person and the other half has his reflection. And even though we now that it is a reflection, when that person raises his visible leg our mind tells us that he is flying……

So based on this I came up with a simple application which would again work off a live camera feed, and mirror half of it on the screen. The person sitting in front of the camera can then interact with it by moving around and creating various different looking versions of himself.

The video below is a screen capture of the application.
