    Great project!

    The tinkerer in me twitches to try two variants.

    Two controllable RGB rows of lights between the glass and mirror (a mere 6 channels), so one could do colors and movement down the well (leaving pixels out for the moment).

    Servo or motors/screwdrive under the mirror support to allow tilting the reflection just a tiny bit, which should make the reflected universe curve to various sides.

    However, the current form is pretty classic (or classy),and better woodwork than I would probably manage...

    Love it and the timing is fantastic. I'm in the midst of trying to do a hand-held version for use as a "magic mirror" on stage. I've a small stash of individual leds, but never considered the pre-fab strips. Thanks for the ideas!

    .

    There were rgb led strip as well on ebay that came with there own controler. I just wanted white lights though. Most of the videos I seen on youtube had the color changing led's.

    you still can

    If you're looking for controllers, you've come to the right place! There are a few different types that can do it - for example, Renard variants, E680x, Arduino, ...
    i have been on here for at least a year now. I know this is the place for controllers just havent messed with anything but renards so far. Thanks for the info though.

    If there were three rows of lights between the reflective surfaces could you animate up or down pulses of motion? I think that could work. It might make the viewer fall over though...

    Would a 3-step chase look correct with the reflection? (I'm wondering if every second reflection would be going the opposite direction) It would still look cool even if it did that, though.

    I'm also wondering how easy it would be to make a "hollow" infinity mirror - ie, make it a circular shape and then put something else in the center so the inifinity effect surrounds that real object (which could be a lighted prop).

    maybe this will help you out on that idea.
    I got all my info from searching infinity mirror on you tube. It will bring up several how to videos. I thought about making something in the middle due to I had some lights left over but I am going to make one out of a picture frame to hang on the wall wife's request.

    Not sure about the three step chase but I have found that the brighter the light the further the reflection dim the lights and the reflection does not go as far down.

    I think it would look awsome. Your mirror and lights will have to be on the inside of your window. If you do this I would like to see. Also you say you own a tint shop, maybey you could give some pointers to those who may try this on laying the tint. This project was my first time to try and its by no means perfect almost tempted to redo the tint but dont think I would do any better the next time. ( I got little bubbles that were not there until the next day?)

    Here are some more videos on the subject. Never thought it would get this much attention.
