“Imagine when you wake up in the morning, you’re able to use the mirror to style your hair, do your makeup, and while doing that, you can also view the weather,” explained Izzat Khair of Microsoft's developer experience team. 

Magic Mirror Can also be used for Direct Advertisements to Person. The facial recognition feature could also provide real-time information to advertisers on how people are reacting to an advertisement displayed on the smart mirror.

The Magic Mirror’s facial recognition system can recognize eight different emotions, including anger, happiness and surprise. Microsoft’s Cognitive Services Face API matches a person’s face to their profile, and allows the mirror to display information relevant to that person’s mood.

Magic Mirror is powered with low-cost and readily-available Raspberry Pi running Windows 10 IoT Core. To provide the interface and basic functionality, Microsoft decided to use a simple Hosted Web App. In fact, the company has open-sourced the application source code and bill of materials on GitHub for you to give it a go yourself.

The web app is created in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and served from a Node instance hosted on Azure. Using the Hosted Web apps bridge, Microsoft converted their web app into a Universal Windows App which provided access to Windows Native APIs and enabled it to run across Windows-powered devices, such as the Raspberry Pi 3.

Magic Mirror is still in development stage and no commercial release date is announced
