Mirror Delivers Sales Talk To All Who Pause Before It
THE universal appeal of the mirror has long been recognized by advertising men as an effective medium for attracting attention to their message but it was left to an enterprising inventor to perfect the talking mirror. With his device the mirror delivers a sales talk the moment someone pauses before it.
The talking mirror is intended for installation in department stores, but it can be used outside with equal effectiveness. An electric relay system swings into operation the moment anyone interrupts an electric eye to scan himself in the innocent appearing mirror. The relay starts an automatic phonograph and amplifier and a brief sales talk is delivered.
