3½ out of 5 stars
It is just a box. It’s called a mirror box. If I stick my right hand in one side I can see my left hand on the other, even when it’s not in the box. It’s weird to see your hand in one place, but feel it in another. The hand in the box is a copycat. Everything I do, it does as well. If I wave, it waves. If I snap my fingers twice, it snaps its fingers twice. If I pull my hand out of the box, it… stays in the box. This is more than just a box.
