“iBar is a system for the interactive design of any bar-counter. Integrated video-projectors can project any content on the milky bar-surface. The intelligent tracking system of iBar detects all objects touching the surface. This input is used to let the projected content interact dynamically with the movements on the counter. Objects can be illuminated at their position or virtual objects can be “touched” with the fingers.”

Artist Daniel Rozin created this very interesting mirror made up of 830 wooden squares. A tiny video camera captures an image and then, uses the light data to form shapes. Each of the 830 wooden squares tilts to reflect varying amounts of light. The result is pretty awesome.
Check out the video of the mirror in action after the jump.
