Here’s a really cool concept for a mirror, an interactive multi-touch mirror that lets you draw things, check photos, well, it’s basically a computer in the mirror.
The only downfall about this product I see is that people would rather sit than stand while using a multi-touch system but a great concept.
The cognitive machine that is your brain automatically deals with things like size and distance and perspective, a job it hopefully does fairly well, you don’t have to give a mirror’s reflection much thought. However, interacting with buttons and animation layered on your reflection and the world behind you is unlike any other touchscreen experience. This unexpectedness, to me, is precisely the allure of HCI and all things touch-capable.
