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?
