Amazon Patent's Mirror for Virtually Trying on Clothes
on 03 January 2018
Utilizing a camera scanning system, displays and projectors, Amazon's patent for a blended-reality mirror describes an item that could (if produced) allow users to try on clothes virtually. The device would be part reflective and part transmissive, wherein the users face and eyes are recognized and reflected back, though affixed to a transmitted body model—based upon a scan—dressed in virtual clothes. Of course, a hindrance in online shopping happens to be lack of ability to try things on. With this proposal, which might employ technology Amazon acquired through their purchased of Body Labs, one could "try on" just about anything from their home.
