Graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University have invented a new gizmo called the Smart.Mirror. It helps people shop for clothes.
The way it works: A chip is embedded in the tag of each article of clothing in a storeóa Radio Frequency Identification chip (RFID). When you try on an article, a sensor reads the tag, and on the smart mirror appear other articles of clothing in the store that might go well with what you're trying on.
Members of the fashion community are excited about it, because it would allow them to present their designs as they conceived them. Stores may increase their sales by providing the additional guidance to customers.
The first prototype of the Smart.Mirror went into the Charles Spiegel for Men in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburg.
James 1:23 refers to Godís word as a mirror (in James 1:23). It's like the Smart.Mirror, because when we look at it, it shows us what pleases God, what behaviors we need to "put on" to look good in His eyes.
