Virtual mirror from Smashing Ideas can help you choose from 10,000 frame styles without having to physically try them on

Online shopping just got much more real, thanks to some near-perfect smart mirror technology that lets you try on virtual eyeglasses without leaving home. This technology, brought to you by Smashing Ideas, allows you to use an app on your smartphone or tablet to try on various styles of sunglasses. This isn't the only kind of software to attempt this, but it's by far the best  when it comes to accuracy.

Using the forward camera, you can choose from 10,000 frame styles, try them on with a tap of the finger, and see exactly what they would look like perched on your nose. You can even move with the virtual eyeglasses, seeing how the pair looks from every angle. Check it out.
