This video installation is possible by combining video projection with physical computing.

The projected image is divided in five parts. A static mirror reflects the hands, two moveable mirrors with step motors amplify the jumps of the persons and two little light spots are illuminating the light sensitive resistors.
The light spots in the video are responsible for controlling the movements of the mirrors and synchronizing the movement of the video-image and the mirror.

This was still a preview.

And here are some pics of the definitive hardware:
