AWSOME!!This Mirror Takes Your "'S-E-L-F-I-E-S"' and Posts Them on Twitter
As was proven in the most popular selfie ever, Ellen DeGeneres' celeb-filled Oscar photo, a very limiting factor when taking a selfie is the length of your hand.
That problem is moot with S.E.L.F.I.E. or "The Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine,” a two-way mirror that automatically takes photos of you and posts them on Twitter.
A project by digital agency iStrategyLabs, S.E.L.F.I.E. actually consists of a Mac mini hidden behind the 2-way-mirror, a web cam and LED lights embedded behind the mirror.
The facial recognition software installed on the Mac recognizes you and initiates the photo-taking process; the LED lights indicate when the photo will be taken.
After the "selfie" is taken, the software sticks your logo onto it and shares it to Twitter. Though the S.E.L.F.I.E. is just an experiment, you can contact iStrategyLabs if you want one for yourself.
Take An Instant Selfie With This Magical Mirror
Meet S.E.L.F.I.E., the “The Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine”. Triggered by simply standing in front of the mirror and holding a smile, hidden LED’s indicate a countdown, then simulate a “flash” as your photo is taken. The photo is then automatically posted to Twitter (with a watermark/logo).
