We designed and built two interactive ‘mirrors’ for Nanjings (南京) best and newest night club: The T-Rex Club. These consist of two high definition displays that provide entertainment for the club visitors via playful interactions.
The first interactive screen shows time-warped images of the audience. For this we employed a “slit-scan” method that delays the display of pixels depending on their position. As a result people can see their image distorting, twisting and flowing in waves. The screen is divided into nine elements, with the central one showing the current live slit-scan feed and the rest recordings of previous encounters.
The second “mirror” reflect the clubs theme of fire: The silhouette of an observer is turned into a realistic looking flame, at full frame rates and complete with heat refraction. As a background we use the T-Rex logo.
