Wooden mirror

Tuesday 21 October 2003

A very cool low-tech (or is it high-tech?) device: a wooden mirror. A video camera captures the image in front of the “mirror”, and tilts wooden tiles to cause them to reflect more or less light. The result is a device that produces an image of what is in front of it (that is, it’s a mirror), but it is made of wood. Very cool.

similar bit in this month's Popular Science (don't ask) using ball bearings - kind of kool, in an incredibly useless kind of way.

Why can't I ask? It sound cool.
