Super Power Mirror

An interactive digital mirror

2009 October

The audience plays with brightly colored objects (gloves, balls, toy swords, wands etc.) while looking at themselves in a rear projected screen that acts like a mirror. A video camera placed next to the screen captures their actions and a Flash application generates super-hero-movie style lightning, smoke and fire effects using the colored objects as cues and composites them over the captured video in realtime, which is then projected on the screen.
