Reflect on this: what if you could see your surroundings – completely crisp and clear – mirrored in the surface before you, but your own image would not come into focus? Sure to freak out friends and Halloween guests, this appropriately-named wall-hanging Ghost Mirror makes you seem like a spirit in the middle of your own living room.

Through refractive tricks of physics, objects close to the mirror (designed by Oliver Sidet) do not seem nearer than they appear but rather more and more indistinct. As people approach the unassuming and unadorned rectangular surface, they expect to get an ever-clearer image of themselves but instead slowly dissipate into nothingness.
