This Mirror Takes Selfies For You (Seriously)

selfie mirror

Fret not, selfie lovers. iStrategy Labs has invented a mirror (aptly named S.E.L.F.I.E) that will take your photo when you stand in front of it — then automatically post that photo to Twitter (or other social media site of your choice). Considering how hard it is to take an actual selfie — especially a good one — without giving ourselves a double chin, we’re totally down with this mirror. So how does it work, exactly?

The Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine (S.E.L.F.I.E.) is made up of a two-way mirror, a web cam and also has LED lights inside (see photo above). The mirror is thick enough that it can also house a Mac Mini, which is where the all-important facial recognition software comes in.

The LED lights are used to simulate a countdown timer. After the photo is snapped, the mirror uploads the pic to your social media account. The S.E.L.F.I.E. mirror isn’t widely-produced, but you can order one here. The only question we have is, “What do you mean by AUTOMATICALLY?” Do we get to review the photo first and add a filter? Because some days… a filter is all the makeup we really need.

Would you buy the S.E.L.F.I.E mirror?
