Mirror mirror on the wall

Talking mirrors are something from fairy tales, but can high tech mirrors be high tech enough to tell that your ass looks fat in that new dress? Well maybe not, but this mirror can keep an eye on your house’s security. The “Magic Message Mirror,” aside from being a decoration of stunning novelty, doubles as a security monitor in which Basil, your on-screen tipster, gives you the low-down on what’s happening on your premises. The mirror is connected to a series of triggers and cameras mounted around your domicile, and when those alarms are activated the system springs to life while Basil magically appears to alert you.

hmm… I would have rather been just happy with a mirror that says “You are the most beautiful of them all”.
