Megan May Daalder, the maker of the Mirrorbox, asked it’s users, “What do you think of this?”
And they answered with the same answer more or less: “It’s weird.”

But one of them reported the following: “I’ve come to realize that this experiment exposes ourselves to others in ways that are considered “weird” because it is not a usual thing to do. Looking at someone in the eyes has a powerful influence on the synergy between two persons. When I did the experiment, I felt as if I was pushed into the limelight, revealing a part of me that is usually kept in covertness. It made me feel vulnerable in a way, yet at the same time, I felt more at ease and comfortable with myself, and being in the skin I am in. Weird, isn’t it? It is, but I assure you, it is a very good thing…”
