S.E.L.F.I.E. Mirror

If holding a camera in front of your face and snapping a picture is too much trouble, then you might be interested in the S.E.L.F.I.E. Mirror (which stands for Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine).

When you stand in front of it, it automatically takes a picture of you and uploads it to Twitter.

Although, if it's taking the picture, then is it still a selfie? Or is it a mirrorie? [via slashgear]

The “Madeleine” Odor Camera

"The Madeleine works in much the same way as a 35mm camera. Just as the camera records the light information of a visual in order to create a replica The Madeleine records the chemical information of a smell."
