1. A computerized method for operating a display system, the display system having a camera, a monitor, and a processor, the method comprising:

  • operating the camera to generate a stream of images of the user;

    operating the processor to detect the presence of the user in the stream of images;

    operating the processor to apply adaptive transformation mapping to the stream of images captured by the camera to generate modified images that appear to be captured from a different point of view of the camera'"'"'s actual point of view; and

    ,displaying the modified images on the monitor;

    wherein the different point of view corresponds to an image taken from a different angle and a different distance than the actual images captured by the camera; and

    wherein during mirror tracking mode the processor utilizes the angle of the images captured by the camera and applies parametric input for a mapping transformation that changes imaging perspective of the images captured by the camera.
