If you like our previous posts on the Multi-Touch Interaction Screen and Future Office Table, you'll love this interactive mirror:
The installation consists of three 8’ high by 3.5 ’ wide panes of mirrored glass placed side by side, each displaying rear-projected content from a high-lumen projector. A user standing in front of the mirrors has the unusual sensation of seeing their reflection and the projected content simultaneously.
Sensors embedded in the structure above each pane register when a user reaches out to a “hot spot,” allowing users to navigate the projected content without ever needing to touch the “screen” or press a “button.” This combined with scale of the system, and the projected image being captured on the inside surface of the glass creates a unique spatial experience where the content appears organically before the viewer. An additional sensor recognizes when a user approaches and automatically activates the mirror to welcome the visitor.
The interactive mirror is created by Nikolai Cornell of madein.la and Phil van Allen of Commotion New Media, with content by Designory and Mindflood. It was commissioned by The George P. Johnson Company.
