Blog: Trying Triumph's Fantasy Mirror

Petah Marian | 27 February 2012

Triumph launched a virtual Fantasy Mirror alongside a new range of lingerie with brand ambassador Helena Christensen last week.

The mirror gives consumers the illusion of standing in front of a full-sized mirror in a changing room. A motion sensor camera, which looks like a modified Kinect for the Xbox 360 (for the videogamers reading here), creates a an accurate 3D reconstruction, tracks the viewer's body which is then translated onto the screen as a 3D silhouette of a female avatar that moves in real time to the user's motions.

The mirror allows users to virtually try on a range of lingerie from the Triumph Essence collection, selecting from items displayed on a small touch screen.

Playing with the Fantasy Mirror at the launch of the latest Triumph range at Selfridges on Thursday, I was pretty impressed by how well it worked. From a vanity perspective (and in a room full of lithe fashion journalists) I'm pleased with how the device improved my shape and it was a good way of looking through the new range.

This "improvement" also means that I wouldn't wholly rely on it when buying lingerie. Fantasy Fitting room is a neat way of looking quickly through a range, I doubt it will replace the expertise of the fitters in the real changing rooms.
