Awkwardly angled selfies could be a thing of the past as fans of the trend could soon have a simple, hands-free photo tool at their disposal in the form of the ‘SELFIE' Mirror.
The brainchild of digital agencyiStrategy Labs, the two-way mirror features hidden facial recognition software that allows users to trigger the camera flash just by smiling and holding a pose. The software is powered by a Mac Mini concealed in the mirror's cabinet casing.
A custom graphic is placed on the floor facing the mirror so that camera subjects know where to stand and LED lights provide a visual countdown before the picture is taken. The lights are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller.
Once photos have been taken they can be automatically uploaded to social media, featuring a watermark of the Selfie logo.
