Max, thank you for sharing this link, it was a great laugh to see their reactions. I can think of this type of setting could be used to break some one mental stability, if there was a more sinister under plot. All of the ladies showed self doubt in their eyes as they assumed themselves invisible!? It was a blast to watch, thanks.

Hi there -- thanks so much for the kind words re my books (everyone else take note and run out and buy one :-) Actually this would make a good psychological test .... although I'm not sure what we'd be testing for. I've been thinking about this video and wondering what would have gone through my mind if I'd been a test subject and just how long it would have taken me to work it out...

Max, I've talked to you on the phone before in response to some of the excellent books you've written. I am especially grateful for the guides that you've written to introduce the foundations of electrical engineering and computer programming. Your sense of humor throughout your books is endearing and the way you explain the math, theories, and practices is very palatible. This video uses technology in a humorous way. However, I wonder if this mirror technology is used by psychologists, user experience designers, and other organizations such as the military for tests and research.

This reminds me of the old "Candid Camera" spoofs we used to have in the UK when I was a kid.
