At the Retail Asia Expo 2015, Samsung unveiled an impressive Mirror and Transparent OLED that's fit for personalized shopping and browsing for information inside of a retail space.

The Samsung Display OLED makes use of Intel Real Sense technology to create an interactive closet and a self-modeling wardrobe so that shoppers can see the items in the store trialed on themselves in an realistic way. With built-in cameras and recording tools, the hybrid mirror-displays will be used as virtual fitting rooms, to give consumers a chance to try on garments and accessories before committing to a purchase.

Smart mirrors like this one are emerging in the retail industry not only to appease vanity, but also supply interaction and information before a consumer advances to the point-of-purchase. Eventually, this could be indicative of what mirrors of the future will look like in homes.
