Why you will soon have a magic mirror (just like the Evil Queen in Snow White!)

With the possible exception of Simpleton’s golden goose, the coolest fairy tale home accessory ever has got to be the evil queen’s magic mirror in Snow White.

The Grimm Brothers’ description of the mirror is positively medieval. But in the language of Silicon Valley, that magic-mirror gadget was an augmented-reality display with face recognition and a voice-controlled artificial intelligence virtual assistant that was capable of querying remote databases of females ranked by fairness.

Don’t look now, but magic mirrors are no longer just for evil queens: http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/2330193/list/Magic-Mirrors-Emerge-From-Fairy-Tales
