Interaction Modes

Magic Mirror offers a range of exciting interaction modes that help to make the system suitable for people of all abilities.

01

Augmented Reality

See yourself reflected in Magic Mirror’s video image with live camera mode displaying your real-time image and environment. Virtual objects and interactive content will appear around you augmenting the experience, interact to bring your surroundings to life.

02

INSET

Inset mode is the same concept as green screen, only here there is no need for a green screen. Inset mode removes the background environment and place users into virtual play environments. This is great for removing clutter and helping users focus on the content and activity.

03

Shadow

For those that do not like to see themselves in the videos image, Shadow mode helps to reduce anxiety by rendering the user image into the scene as a dark filled shadow. Shadow mode also removes the background environment and place users into a virtual play environment.

04

Avatar

Take control of on-screen avatars and watch the characters come to life with the movements you make. Open up a new world of Kinaesthetic fun in 3D space and explore spatial awareness, proprioception and enhance your ability to sense the position, location, orientation and movement of the body and its parts.

05

Facilitator Mode

When working with a single user it is possible to set Magic Mirror to only track one user. This means caregivers can appear in the scene to support a user without interacting with the content. All interaction will be attributable to the user.

MIRROR FAQ’S

CAN WE USE WITH IT OUR OWN HARDWARE?

Magic Mirror software is available as a software only purchase if you have PC that meets the minimum specification and supported motion detection camera: Windows 10, Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, GTX1060 Nvidia Gfx Card, 256 SSD, Kinect v2 for Windows

DOES IT TRACK WHEELCHAIR USERS?

There is no problem tracking wheelchair users, but it is a good to know that the system needs to register a skeleton frame to initialise the player in the scene. There is no problem tracking wheelchair users when they are upright. The greater the level of recline the harder it is to be detected accurately.

IS THE MAGIC MIRROR EASY TO USE?

Yes, Magic Mirror is very user-friendly. Control with a keyboard or our Android and iOS apps. The learning curve required to use Magic Mirror is very slight. It can also be operated via remote schedule which means there is no need for any operator once the system has been turned on.

IS THE SYSTEM CUSTOMISABLE?

If Magic Mirror had a middle name it would be ‘customisable’! Everything in Magic Mirror is customisable, from the apps and graphics, to the editable access inputs and skeleton tracking interaction points. 

Where can Fixed Magic MIRROR BE INSTALLED?

There aren’t many limitations as to where the system can be installed; most rooms with suitable ceiling fixings, and a suitable wall to project onto can have a Magic Mirror installed. Contact us to discuss your options.

Who is Magic Mirror suitable for?

Magic Mirror is suitable for people of all abilities.
