Microsoft presents AR mirror with Windows Phone
During its annual TechForum event, Microsoft presented an Augmentend Reality mirror. Here, a Kinect-sensor, a translucent mirror and a lcd were used; a smartphone can be used as well. The AR-system, which Microsoft calls 'Holoflector', has some similarities with the 3d-gui also presented during the event, but this system consists of a translucent mirror placed in front of a lcd. The latter can be used to project a graphic overlay or animation over someone's reflection; the body's movements can be tracked by a Kinect-sensor, but the movements of a Windows phone can also be tracked by the phone's sensors.
