OMG inbd 10K sms mirror LOL

Last I checked, mirrors could only present reflections of what stood in front of them. I mean, that’s the definition of a mirror. But not this mirror. This mirror reflects what stands in front of it, and it accepts text messages. Designed by Robert Stadler at Radi Designers and available for purchase at Generate, as you approach the +336+ mirror it displays the text that you send it via hidden LEDs. I’d probably just have mine say “HOTT!” all the time, but you might want to get more creative. You might also want to think about the theoretical implications of overlaying and labeling your own image with text. Or maybe you’d insist that the mirror is already a mediating device and that this mirror just takes the mediation one step further. Maybe you want to make your mirror say, “I farted.” In any case, this is one of the few mirrors that I’ve seen that does something other than just hang there. Then again, this is also the only mirror that I’ve seen that costs $10,000. You get what you pay for?
