Meet The Mirror Taking Your ‘Selfies’ And Posting On Twitter
It’s clear that selfies are only as great as the length of your arm…. (see Ellen DeGeneres’ celeb-filled Oscar photo, a very limiting factor when taking a selfie is the length of your hand.)
That problem is resolved with S.E.L.F.I.E. or “The Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine,” a two-way mirror that automatically takes photos of you and posts them on Twitter. A project by digital agency iStrategyLabs, S.E.L.F.I.E. actually consists of a Mac mini hidden behind the 2-way-mirror, a web cam and LED lights embedded behind the mirror. Selfies are no longer limiting with the S.E.L.F.I.E. – check out how it works below.
The facial recognition software installed on the Mac recognizes you and initiates the photo-taking process; the LED lights indicate when the photo will be taken. After the “selfie” is taken, the software sticks your logo onto it and shares it to Twitter. Though the S.E.L.F.I.E. is just an experiment, you can contact iStrategyLabs if you want one for yourself. Would you snap a selfie using the S.E.L.F.I.E?
