New Technology embedded in mirrors at home.

... what's the weather going to be like today?"

Who knew the Grimm Fairy Tales hit the nail on the head? Magic mirrors!  

Well, sort of.

Imagine a mirror that could sense movement, understand gestures, and respond with information directly beside your reflection. Right now the New York Times Lab (NYTL) team is working on creating just that.

Their concept is a mirror that can show you the weather, your appointments that day, the latest headlines, and much, much more. This idea is no longer fiction, it is being produced right now – today!

If you don't believe me, check out the video link here where a member of the NYTL shows off their latest prototype.

Soon, brushing our teeth will no longer be an idle activity...
