• 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.

  • My project is to create an infinity mirror. An infinity mirror works by bouncing the light from the LEDs back and forth repeatedly, which eventually seem to fade the further away you look. This creation of many rows and columns of LED lights creates the illusion of depth, so it looks like a tunnel or tube that goes on forever.

  • Last Friday Shai demonstrated a very interesting illusion, using these pills called Miracle Fruit. They bond to taste receptors on the tongue. When acidic foods, such as lemons or even sour pickles, are eaten, it induces the taste of sweet rather than sour, making sour foods taste sweet. I personally ate lemons, grapefruit, and blood orange. The lemons in particular tasted very sweet, in my opinion.
