The average bathroom-goer would have no idea he or she is standing in front of such an intelligent mirror: [The NYTimes R&D Lab's Reveal mirror] looks like the plain, white-rimmed reflective glass that might hang above your sink, save for the camera eye peering out from the left side and the microphone perched on its crown. Its Microsoft Kinect sensor scans your face and pairs it to any other time it’s seen you. Address it as “Mirror” and it’s ready to answer your commands. -Time
