So this is straight out of 1999. Still, I bet one or two of you will still think it’s better than Plumpudding Thursday with Grandma. It’s artwork/technological innovation/super gadget, created by artist Daniel Rozin. “Wooden Mirrors” are built from cameras, a computer, some custom software and a pane covered in hundreds of 1.5 inch square pieces of wood, each one controlled by it’s own servo motor. The cameras look at you, split your image up in the number of wooden “pixels” that the pane is made of, and the servo motors then adjust the wood squares to create your likeness.
Move you hand across this mirror of sorts, and the wood pixels will shift accordingly to recreate the passage of your hand.
