Mirror of the Future

New York Times R&D Lab developed an intelligent mirror that does more than letting a user see his reflection. Using voice command and motion detection, it allows user to check the weather, news articles, health statistics and more. Aside from browsing news articles in the mirror, user can transfer these articles to a smart phone using RFID so he can read it while on the go. The mirror can also detect objects being placed on the bottom shelf and provide additional information of the object.

This is indeed a cool way to deliver information as part of one’s daily routine.

No word yet as to whether they’ll mass produce this mirror since this is an on-going project.
But if ever they’ll sell one, will you get one? Why or why not?

Topshop Virtual Dressing Room

Since I’m a tech and fashion lover, I really like the virtual dressing room of Topshop. The interactive installation makes a user try out clothes without the hassle of going inside a fitting room and physically changing clothes. See the video below.

I like Topshop as a fashion brand in itself and seeing them try out new technologies such as Augmented Reality, makes me love them even more!

Which one do you prefer using, the virtual dressing room or the physical fitting room?
