Above is probably the funniest demonstration I’ve ever seen. It showcases a new technology that converts a large vanity mirror (aka “Magic Mirror”) into a virtual wardrobe changer. The technology, from what I can tell, uses a hidden camera and a rear projector to display various information widgets (i.e. weather, stocks, email etc.) and graphical overlays. Below is a demo of the smart kitchen exhibit in the Dream Home that makes use of RFID tech and voice activation. Unfortunately, the “Elias” family member who is supposed to run the room wasn’t available so Grandmama Elias stepped in and gave it a shot. You can find more info on both technologies here.

    That is crazy! The mirror has parental controls … hmmm … interesting.

    The parental controls are put in place in case the virtual outfits are deemed too naughty by the parents ;) — I’m guessing.

    It’s not something I dream about. It’s technology for technology’s sake.

    I know that this stuff is available already, but where can you get it? Because I would love to be able to build a house like that.
