This is an ongoing experimental work. The device activates when someone looks in the mirror. A PIR sensor in the mirror detects infrared heat, which triggers a microcontroller to run 1 of 8 random ‘motor states’ that can last for 2-4 minutes. The motors run at various speeds and durations. When a state is finished the device rests for a variable period of time, it can then be triggered again by someone looking in the mirror.
