AbstractA Magic Mirror paradigm is an augmented reality (AR) system where a camera and display device act as a mirror where one can see a reflection of oneself and virtual objects together. Fiducial markers mounted on a number of hand held and wearable objects allow them to be recognized by computer vision, different virtual objects can be rendered relative to the objects depending on the chosen theme. The experience can be enjoyed by many onlookers without special equipment, unlike other AR experiences such as with HMDs or tablet PCs. A series of theoretical and practical problems were overcome to produce a working system suitable for educational and entertainment for the public.
