Themeaddicts, a home automation company formed by a team of experienced theme park and movie special effects pros has made it possible for you to have your very own “magic mirror” on the wall.

Magic Mirror by ThemeaddictsWhen dormant, the M30P Magic Mirror looks like a normal mirror, but reveals an interactive image when triggered into action. The mirror can be programmed to react to inputs from your existing home security system. For instance, the mirror can be set to automatically greet visitors walking by, or to notify you of guests approaching your house. A CGI character (doing it’s best “Jeeves” impression,) is the face and voice in the mirror. For an additional cost, Themeaddicts can even create your own custom CGI personality and messages.

The system features a hidden 30″ LCD flat panel, driven by a built-in content server which contains the animations and processing software and hardware. In addition to the character’s messages, the display can also show feeds from home security cameras.
