“Wonder Mirror” is an exhibit where visitors can enjoy strange mirror-related experiences that fuse digital and analog. “Wonder Mirror” is an exhibit where visitors can enjoy strange mirror-related experiences that fuse digital and analog.

Kentaro Fukuchi, Associate Professor of Frontier Media Sciences in the Meiji University School of Interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences, provided technical assistance with the production of “Wonder Mirror – Contents Fusing Digital and Analog,” an attraction exhibit at Sky Circus Sunshine 60 Observatory, which will open on April 21 (Thu.).
The Wonder Mirror is a corridor-type space that is lined with large and small mirrors and interweaves analog and digital technology. It gives people who look inside it seven types of strange mirror-related experiences.
The Fukuchi Lab. provided the “melting mirror,” a mirror in which the images of people who peer into it seem to melt into the background, making them look invisible, and the “windy mirror,” a mirror in which viewers look as if they are being blown away by the wind.

The Fukuchi Lab. is engaged in research and development of basic technology in the area of interactive media that supports entertainment experiences for enjoyment involving all five senses. It is also researching ways to apply this media technology in various daily-life occasions.
