Magic mirror reflects an image without reversing it

Mirrors, due to their natural properties, reverse things when you look into them. That's why the writing on your shirt looks backwards in a mirror. That's not a big problem for most people, but mathematician Andrew Hicks, it was a challenge.

Using all sorts of math, he's created a magic mirror that actually shows things un-reversed. No, there's no camera inside and it's not a screen, it's merely a specially bent surface that precisely reflects the image in a way that you'll be able to read what's written on your shirt. Practical? Maybe not, because I think I'd be really disoriented brushing my teeth in front of this thing, but cool nonetheless.
