mirror camera

mirror captures images appearing [reflected] by it and stores as pictures/video
  [vote for,

The mirror stores the images reflected by it so can be used for surveilance or to jus plain take your own picture! A video camera could be embedded or suitalble material [plasma] should be used to make the mirror.
