The patent describes the mirror as partially reflective and partially transmissive and uses a mixture of displays, cameras and projectors to create a hybrid image. This patented mirror creates a virtual model by scanning the environment and then identifies the user's face and eyes to determine which objects will be considered as reflections. Once this process is completed, the virtual clothes and scenes are passed through the mirror to create a mixed-reality effect.
Of course, not all patent ideas turn into products. butAmazonLast year acquired Body Labs, an artificial intelligence software and computer vision company, which created 3D models of body movements and then allowed them to wear virtual costumes. In addition, Amazon has launched Echo Look, a hands-free camera that captures the user's full body photos and offers fashion advice. Amazon is increasingly concerned about the fashion industry, ambitious to establish business in this area, including the launch of their own clothing line, and fashion design based on Instagram fashion design algorithm.
