How would you like to try on make up without actually trying on makeup?
The Digital Cosmetic Mirror allows women to try on make up without having to go through the time consuming step of applying the makeup. Created by cosmetics company Shiseido, the interactive display allows users to check out new products using augmented reality.
All you do is stand in front of the computer camera, scan your face and then the image is loaded into the computer and gives you a number of colors to try out. You then select a color via touchscreen and the computer applies the makeup to the virtual image. If you like what you see, you can print out the photo and pick up your new cosmetics.
How cool is that!!
So far this is a Japan-exclusive but I would love to see this in my favorite cosmetic store in the near future.
