Scary mirror - level 2

Scary mirror - level 2

06-11-2014 07:00

A company created a scary Halloween prank. It changed toilet mirrors in a cinema into special displays.

These displays had cameras, and the cameras could track people’s faces – the displays knew where somebody’s face was. When the person got close enough, their face in the mirror changed into something scary. You could be a scary clown, a werewolf or a zombie.

The mirrors scared most people at first, but then they had fun with the technology. One woman was so shocked that she ran away.

Difficult words: prank (a practical joke), track (when you track something, you know where it is), werewolf (something which is half human and half wolf).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
