    That's not what you'd see, at least not in any recognisable form.

    Hard to say.

    From the viewpoint, the perceived image would of course be a 360 degree one (front, sides, back and so forth) and would would be reflected around infinitely. I tried to find some info, but failed. It's obviously a mathematical problem really. Not that I'm a good enough one to deal with this.

    An experiment with a cylindrical mirror-foil ring and a camera could be interesting.

    If you started against a wall facing mirror You would start off fairly normal then as you moved toward centre you would see yourself get smaller then get bigger until all you can see is your face then as you move toward wall behind your image would flip upside down and then recede. I think. Lol

    Another interesting mirrored effect is your reflected image is always same size irrelevant of how close you are to mirror. About 50% of actual. It may look bigger or smaller but isn't.

    still trying to find this video i saw on this subject. was interesting. another thing it said that i remember was that our view of ourself is, obviously not the view others see due to mirror reversal, but if you used a flexable mirror and curve it to right angle you will see 2 images of yourself. the one you normally see and the view others see.
