When people buy eyeglasses in a store, they are more often than not haunted by so many questions. They have so much to consider: Does the frame shape suit me? Does the design speak to my personal style? How do I look? Since the eyeglasses don't come with prescription when you trying them in the store, the users cannot see themselves clearly through the mirror and compare how they look, especially people with poor eyesight.
How Smart Mirror works?
Based on the assumption that infrastructure exists to support eyeglasses and face
An interactive mirror installed on all store mirror panels with adjustable height (for accessibility)
Users can click pictures to see how a particular eyeglass looks on them
Users can get a recommendation based on recommendation engine based on the face shape, gender and general taste of the user (determined through the kind of eyeglasses tried).
Get second opinions from friends and family
Users can transfer images clicked from the smart mirror to their phones to support sharing with friends and family.
Compare different eyeglasses
Users can compare how various eyeglasses look on their face structure on a big screen to help in better decision making.
