New Illusion

Haika was the guinea pig for our latest bit of fun research, although you see from the way her expression changes at the end of the video that she didn't find it all quite as much fun as we did. You'll have to forgive the shaky hand on the camera, but Tasha couldn't stop laughing while filming. We'll explain more about the illusion another time, but it's all part of the grand plan to work out exactly what we can do to change and mould body representations.

The new MIRAGE100 goes to the Netherlands

This is Haika from Utrecht. She and Alyanne visited the lab in Nottingham to get some training and to pick up their new system, the MIRAGE100 - faster than before with only a 10ms delay between image capture and display. They loved all the illusions and even came up with a couple of their own. Next week we'll post a video of Haika's reaction to one of our latest creations.
