Illusions and the Brain | Projects | Infinity Mirror | Updates

  • My first attempt at creating an infinity mirror was with a simple square prototype, with three LEDs on each side of the square. I laser cut four pieces of wood with holes in them for the LEDs. Also, I laser cut two pieces of acrylic, on which I put pieces of a reflective cling tape. This made it so that the acrylic would function as a mirror as well as transparent glass. In essence, the light from the LEDs is bounced back and forth inside the walls of the infinity mirror. The transparency of the acrylic allows a viewer to see the bouncing back and forth of the LEDs, creating the infinite corridor.
