The interactive mirror was first presented in Manhattan’s Bloomingdale’s department store, where TRACY NOAH, a self-described shopaholic, dropped by every day during his lunch hour. In a vintage-looking white wooden frame, the prototype acted as a three-part high-resolution digital screen. Users could look at themselves in the mirror, or see themselves reflected in it.
In November, Ralph Lauren launched the first interactive mirror in its flagship store in Manhattan. Another retailer, Lululemon, also has a smart mirror in its flagship store. It focuses on the importance of learning about the community, and the concept is called a “digital community board.” The concept of the smart mirrors is not new. The company has been experimenting with the concept for a few years now, and the Lululemon experience is no exception.
Using facial recognition technology, the Voice Interactive Mirror at H&M’s flagship store wakes up and displays its departure time. It also shows how far you have to walk to reach the nearest train station. The system allows you to select multiple trains and stations, and choose the direction in which the train will travel. The experience is so immersive that it has been dubbed the “ultimate selfie” booth. Unlike ordinary selfie sticks, this mirror is completely transparent, so you can take your selfies right next to it.
The Voice Interactive Mirror at H&M’s flagship store is a real-life photo booth that tracks MTA Subway trains. The Magic Mirror shows you how long you need to walk to the nearest train station. You can even ask the voice assistant to take your picture. The voice will then ask you to pose in front of it and give you style advice. If you want, you can also get a discount via a QR code.
The Voice Interactive Mirror at H&M’s flagship store has a Voice Interactive Mirror that wakes up through facial recognition. The smart mirrors allow you to take a selfie with your loved one and get fashion advice on how to dress yourself for the evening. The Magic Mirror has been designed by Stockholm-based agencies and Microsoft. It has been installed in two Manhattan department stores. The company plans to introduce it in other cities soon.
Besides the Samsung interactive mirror, many other brands are also experimenting with interactive mirrors. For example, H&M’s flagship store has voice Interactive Mirrors. These smart mirrors wake up through facial recognition and offer discounts through QR codes. The company is also working with Nokia, a Swedish company, and Swedish companies to create the mirrors. The voice Interactive Mirror at H&M is a great idea for a date.
