Here is the store locator for IKEA's in the US!

There is one in Charlotte!

info.ikea-usa.com...

Not saying they will have something like this, but they do have some funky things, and it wouldn't surprise me!

And what about the birds? According to Designboom, Lindvall says that a special film that is visible to birds will be applied to the glass.


I dont believe it.
I put up a glass wall and it killed six birds in six days.


cleantechnica.com...


A new exterior film for glass has been developed which can be
seen by birds but not humans. It could be used to help prevent the
needless deaths of billions of birds which collide with windows annually.


just put the film on the mirrors instead of windows

maybe you'll believe now

Very cool, I would go with another material though, not mirrors, the birds have got to hate that!

Well, it's in Sweden.

Perhaps a kit will be coming to a local IKEA near you soon!



Ahhh you bet me too it , my wife is Swedish and I just teased her about that ! When the millatary tabled they were working on invisiblity cloaks , I came up with the idea of a mirrored body armour for forests and snow . It would really work accept you would need to be in front of the sun for most purposes because of reflection or glare . But now you mentioned the film that would take care of the glare

Hey now that is one hell of a deer stand!


Problem is keeping the mirrors clean for stealth. Better off going camo IMO.

boondock covered that, what about the different seasons?

By the way boondock, excellent observation.

Mirrored, why would they go mirrored instead of camouflaged?

Now, the question is, do they have portals and can you use them as blinds?

Exactly, a mirror will reflect anything, so if your walking near the area you would notice the strange movements on the mirror matching your movement. Not really great, but nice idea I guess.

It's hardly almost invisible. It's still in the "uncanny valley" of invisible things.

Seriously, you'd have to be extremely lucky that everyone looking for you was tripping on acid and ecstasy at the same time in order to not be found... and that's probably only a 10% chanch that a bunch of tripping teenagers wouldn't find you.

A cave, or even a hole it MUCH MORE invisible than that optical debauchery.

Now just imagine what a pissed off neighbor with a slingshot could do............

But seriously, I think this is a great idea.

Anyone thinking of using this to view the UFO in their habitat ? LOL

Actually, I see nothing new here, some box using mirror as walls and put up on a tree, am I missing something ? I prefer if it have 1 way mirror, now that a bit more something, felt like flying. Oh the birds, that should cover for dinner, hmmm maybe I should use this as a bird trap ?

Conspiracy Sidetrack:
When an alien saw his reflection in the mirror, it baffles, they have none and need none.

They better have a lot of Windex because those mirrors are going to get nasty from weather conditions.

They probably have these new nanotech coated windows which gets cleaned automatically by rain!

I know the Swedes , they often thinks about that kind of stuff before they design anything - they are a very practical people and high tech thinkers & designers in that sense.

Quite interesting and nice floorplans.. But to work over here theyd have to monkey proof it first...

I cannot help but wonder how it attaches to the tree. Also how growth of the tree will be affected by the attachment points.

Hi,

When I first saw the title I thought - 'oh yeah!' But then saw the pictures and read the article... Very impressive.

Only problem is (if used as a bolt hole as, has been suggested) that the reflection downwards wouldn't be the expected sky but would be the dark earth below. Ideally the base needs to project the image from above.

Apart from that I have ordered two for delivery once the trees in my garden achieve the required height....

Peace!

Haha, I dig this. Too bad we don't have much forest down here in the South. I guess I'll have to move up North before the sh*t hits the fan.
