just make a room of mirrors, and make one of them single sided, you can see in and it won't reflect your image back

sawse
#18 to #17 - John Cena (07/10/2013) [-]
Exactly.

And it has been done before, I recently watched a video on Youtube where they had such a room.

Wheres a light source?
User avatar #86 to #33 - thedarkangel (07/10/2013) [-]
Maybe it's one of the mirrors that works like glass on one side and a mirror on the other so you can shine the light through?
#60 to #33 - John Cena (07/10/2013) [-]
They probably took the photo during the day, obviously.

.. There's no windows.
If there's no windows, why does the time of day matter?
#70 to #65 - mklost (07/10/2013) [-]
I can only assume he meant the light would seep through the mirror. Similar to using a flashlight under your skin.
User avatar #71 to #70 - EmoHairflip (07/10/2013) [-]
I don't think it works the same way..
User avatar #72 to #71 - mklost (07/10/2013) [-]
It could, it does it with plastics. Unfortunately I have not tried it with mirrors so I wouldn't know.

Now I wish I had saved that picture where someone had made a small box of mirrors and put a camera inside it on a timer.

It was beautiful beyond anything describable.
Like the beauty of space with its nebula and shining stars unfiltered by our polluted atmosphere, but symmetrical, and crystalline.

Of course it looked like that because the corners and edges of the box's interior were brighter than the surfaces, so that leaves the question of how a sphere of mirrors would look...
#124 to #12 - wagastragas ONLINE (07/10/2013) [-]
if its completely closed, then it would be just darkness, if you add a light source it would just reflect it making it a light ball, if the wall emited their own ligth it would all be uniform light, if you add a source to capture whats inside like a camera that would alter how it looks without one, but mostly would just look like the object placed inside disorted into a spehere, unless it was completely transparent/invisible
#13 to #12 - galaxyguy (07/09/2013) [-]
Found ya'll some source.

Someone shopped the camera out of one of the pictures. It's my new background.

User avatar #94 to #74 - captchakid (07/10/2013) [-]
Only the camera would eventually absorb all the light.
#51 - xerzys (07/10/2013) [-]
**** i remember seeing picture of a guy creating a box, on the inside theres only mirrors, and then he put a camera and a candle inside. the camera caught a picture.

it looked awesome.

if i saved it i'll post

Two years ago, I asked my physics teacher a similar question. I asked: If you have a hollow sphere and the insides were totally lined with a mirror coating and nothing was in it, what would one see if a single white spark were to somehow ignite inside the sphere? Would the light just keep bouncing off the mirrors forever?   
He said that assuming the spark was white light and no other colour, the sphere would remain bright but only for a slightly longer amount of the time than the spark existed but the colour seen would be a green tint and eventually the sphere would go become dark again. The reason for the green tint is that all mirrors reflect the colour green better than the other colours of the spectrum. The other colours would just be absorbed more quickly by the mirror. Secondly,  the reason the flash not being constantly bounced around by the mirrors forever and ever is due to the fact that mirrors are not total reflectors. Even the best mirror will still absorb about 1% of the light that hits it.

That's cool and all but the gif you chose is gonna haunt me for nights. Still, thanks.

HOW IS THERE LIGHT IN THE ROOM IF THERE IS NOTHING BUT MIRRORS IN THE ROOM

They shined light in it at one point and the light just keeps reflecting until it runs out of photons.

I have no ******* idea..
User avatar #26 to #2 - metalmind (07/10/2013) [-]
Because mirrors do not reflect 100% of the light, and also light doesn't need objects to exist
#93 to #2 - John Cena (07/10/2013) [-]
If you're shining a light in as you close the last side, then the light will keep reflecting off the sides, though I think it would slowly be converted to heat energy.
User avatar #5 to #2 - shiningfinger (07/09/2013) [-]
you shine a flashlight in the room and then quickly close the door.
User avatar #42 to #35 - shiningfinger (07/10/2013) [-]
No **** ?
Look at comment #9
User avatar #8 to #5 - pheonixinstinct ONLINE (07/09/2013) [-]
this wont work for long, the energy will bounce for abit but run out eventually. somebody asked this the last time this was posted somebody that actually knew what they were talking about and explained it well.
User avatar #9 to #8 - shiningfinger (07/09/2013) [-]
I know it won't work. It was a joke.

IT WOULD LOOK BLACK! IT WOULD LOOK ******* BLACK CAUSE THERE'S NO LIGHT IN IT!
#114 - John Cena (07/10/2013) [-]
IF I WRITE IN ALL CAPS PEOPLE WILL READ MY TUMBLR POST


also; the correct answer is black considering there is no light source, that physics teacher is an idiot
#48 - Nightelfbane (07/10/2013) [-]
A room with absolutely nothing in it = no light source = no light reflecting off mirrors = looks like nothing
NOW
take 6 one way mirrors and one of these sexy multicolored light pedestals that spin around.
make a cube with the mirror side facing in. put inside pedestal.
TRIP BALLS.
User avatar #96 - robertolee ONLINE (07/10/2013) [-]
Wouldn't it just be dark? Mirrors don't reflect 100% of light that hits them so it would eventually be dark? Or have I missed the point, someone enlighten me.

Thank you I was looking for someone to say this. I remember one of my professors telling us that since the mirrors are slightly green that the reflection will just be greener and greener the further it goes into the reflections.

Mirror reflect green a lit bit more, which would make that room green. pic related, look at the left, which are mirror reflecting a lot of time
User avatar #39 to #36 - fjfordawin (07/10/2013) [-]
even if there is no green present? such as a full black outfit?
#40 to #39 - besterest (07/10/2013) [-]
Well, if consider that there's is light in our room (white light) the green would be reflected more, so wed see it more. If the light was colored, then we'd see the color of the light, but still keeping its green hues more. if there was no light, you wouldn't see anything.
User avatar #62 to #40 - onebadbassoonist (07/10/2013) [-]
What if you used night vision goggles in the room if there was no light, what would that be like?
#172 to #62 - besterest (07/10/2013) [-]
Most night vision goggles only concentrate light, so if there is absolutely no light, then it would still be black
User avatar #179 to #172 - onebadbassoonist (07/10/2013) [-]
Ah, I did not know that. Well there goes my idea XD
User avatar #43 to #40 - fjfordawin (07/10/2013) [-]
alrighty, it seems like you know what your talking about. Would a light source continuously reflect if some how you could provide a light source for a second then closed it?
#175 to #43 - besterest (07/10/2013) [-]
no, cause light is energy, so light would give a little heat(corresponding to the color it absorbs), making it lose a little energy. Since the light goes extremely fast, the time it would take to lose its energy would also be extremely fast. I do not know the exact time it would stay "on", but it all depends on the size of the mirror cube or whateve solids you choose
User avatar #45 to #43 - absoluteziehro (07/10/2013) [-]
The light would continue to spread out more and more, and despite the reflectiveness of the mirrors, the light would lose its strength because it would not be as focused as it originally was.
#177 to #45 - besterest (07/10/2013) [-]
It would not "spread" it would only lose some of it's energy. See my above response for fjfordawin's comment
#46 to #45 - selfrazedzealot (07/10/2013) [-]
unless the mirrors were perfect, in which case there would be no green tint.
#174 to #46 - besterest (07/10/2013) [-]

Put a gold coin into that room and let the jews pay money to look at it.
#126 - John Cena (07/10/2013) [-]
You would have to have something inside that room to know. For instance yourself or a camera, so whatever you put inside there, you would just see many reflections of in different angles you ******* moron.
User avatar #98 - huckleberry (07/10/2013) [-]
it would be pitch black because there's nothing in there so no lighting, there for you wouldnt be able to see. and if you where in it then you would see a **** load of yourself, and if not then if you had some neat way of seeing in without it altering the way it looks inside the box then you would just see a bunch of lines, you know the ******* seams of the box.

Pitch black, there is no light for the mirrors to reflect.
User avatar #67 to #64 - dabronydude (07/10/2013) [-]
handheld powerful light, go in the mirror room, what will you see?
User avatar #68 to #67 - loomiss ONLINE (07/10/2013) [-]
**** ton of yourself, I was thinking maybe if you like put a light source in it real quick then sealed it so there would still be light (like a lazer pointer) how cool that would be
