Touchscreen Magic Mirror

The Touch Magic Mirror from The Big Space

The Big Space have added an ultrasonic system from Sensitive Object to their Magic Mirror to enable it to also be a touchscreen.

Nice to see that collection of technologies coming together to create some interesting interactive experiences, though I don’t fancy being the one having to keep the mirror clean from fingerprints.

At the moment it looks as if they’re mainly using it in retail settings, but I can imagine there might be some interesting alternative applications, especially when combined with some camera-based interaction.

But will it stop me from choosing rubbish clothing combinations and make me look handsome? Perhaps I could just project George Clooney’s head over mine in the morning…
