Here’s a mirror which switches to being an advertising display if nobody is near it. Placed in a public toilet this means that ads are on display during the time that nobody is standing right in front of the display/mirror to wash their hands or do their hair. Watch the video.

Update: Here’s the website of the manufacturer of this display.

  1. more subliminal advertising for you.
    how annoying i would break such a mirror after a few beers. the ones with smaller displays within a bigger frame are better. full mirror advert is stupid.

  2. Hi,

    We have developed a better “magic” mirror in our company, it uses Electroluminiscent sheets with animation or standard fluorescent backlight, a sensor for presense like the one you show here or a hand sensor, then when the people touch 1 mirror it becames OFF.

    We distribute them worldwide.
