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...

Found ya'll some source.

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

**** 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.

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



FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

you shine a flashlight in the room and then quickly close the door.

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.

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.

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.

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

This dad must be a horrible teacher then. If there really is nothing in the room except you, it would be 			*******		 dark because there's no light source, and if there was, you'd simply see infinite reflections of what's inside the room. Have these guys never seen an inifinite mirror picture? God damn it.

What about a mirror sphere that is completely mirrored on the inside and is a sphere?
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.

If a perfect cube like that just poofed into existence with light trapped inside it would look like mirrors stretching into infinity but only for so long. Light would constantly get absorbed by the mirror and at one point become completely black.

Where would the light source be?
