The same moment the visitor steps into the room, he is confronted by a a toy mirroring his face. However, just a moment later the jack-in-the-box-like mechanism on the ground pulls the toy down. It flips back but the mirror image remains distorted.
The mechanism on the ground functions by a metall arm with a rubberlip which pulls at the tensioned rope. Attached to the ceiling by steel springs, the toy darts rattling back and forth.
