This magic mirror does not tell you who the fairest is of them all, but it does reflect your inner anatomy including bones and muscles whenever you stand right in front of it. Pretty unnerving if you ask me, imagine looking at the mirror hoping to preen your hair but discovering a skull with two bulging eyeballs staring back instead. This tracking system was created by professor Yoshihiko Nakamura of the Information and Robot Technology Institute and University of Tokyo’s brains, and is able to monitor and display up to 300 skeletal muscles courtesy of 16 electromyographs that will measure the electrical impulses that govern your muscles. The magic mirror will even mark the various muscles in various color codes according to how much action they’re looking at.
