We propose an interactive system that implements the technique of Anamorphosis, with a flat-panel display and a cylindrical mirror. In this system, a distorted image is shown on a flat-panel display or a tabletop surface, and the original image will appear on the cylindrical mirror when a user puts it on the display. By detecting the position and rotation angle of the cylinder, the system provides interaction between the user and the image on the cylinder. We developed three applications using this device.
