Shiny Mirror Balls

The Shiny Mirror Balls digital mirror is made from 921 chrome-plated plastic balls affixed on 921 hexagonal black-anodized aluminum tube extrusions. It continuously scans its "surface" using a digital camera in order to generate a pixelated picture of what it "reflects".

Implications - Although at first it might seem to closely resemble the scary face of the computer at the end of the third Matrix, this impressive display of technological advancement is actually pretty benign. Needless to say, if you cracked this staggering hardware out during one of your parties it would definitely be the talk of your guests. I would not, however, recommend it for use while shaving -- it's not meant for that!
