Holoflector-The Things They Can do with an LCD Panel
Microsoft Research is certainly giving us a lot to talk about these days. The Holoflector as it's been named, is a device which pairs a large translucent mirror with an LCD panel behind it and a Kinect camera on top of it. What you'll be reminded of as you watch the video is a scene out of a futuristic film.
The combination of the mirror and the LCD allows the user to see their reflection but to have that reflection altered by whatever the LCD panel displays. The Kinect component of course tracks the body movements but they key is matching the renderings of the LCD with those movements.
