1.- Flip the mirror up
2.- Move the sensor forth.
3.- Now you are in mirrorless mode.

Bonus: by moving the sensor back, you can turn any lens into a macro.

Extra bonus: by moving the sensor back and forth, now you can AF even Leica M lenses ...

They did something similar:

And it was way more complex since then they had to move many more parts, including the film roll:
