Interactive design firm IconNicholson is testing out a mirror for department stores that allows shoppers to "virtually" try on clothes. The mirror is connected to the internet via camera, so friends can log on and see what you're trying on in real time, and communicate with you through a chat window.
Great. It's not bad enough we guys have to sit on the boyfriend couch while you ladies shop, now you can get us at home, too. Someone please develop an emoticon that means "No, that dress does not make you look fat."
