Memomi’s MemoryMirror lets you try on clothes without actually putting them on
Three Neiman Marcus stores – in San Francisco, Walnut Creek, and Dallas – have a special kind of mirror that lets people “try on” and compare different garments or outfits without actually trying them on.
The mirror, called the MemoryMirror, is made by a small Palo Alto company called Memomi. The company was demonstrating its mirror at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco Wednesday.
When you stand in front of the mirror, which looks to stand about six feet tall, you are captured by an Intel RealSense camera at the top. But the image you see in the mirror is straight-on, not the view from the camera’s perspective (like a security camera view). In fact, the mirror uses three other cameras and a patented image adjustment technology to make it look like the you’re looking into a real mirror.
MemoryMirror’s main trick, though, is showing you your digital image and then digitally outfitting you with different colors and styles of clothing. You can see various garments from all angles as you spin around in front of the camera.
The mirror records the video. The video quality isn’t quite good enough to see the detailed texture of the garment fabric, but it’s good enough to give you the general idea of how you’d look.
