Try on Eye Glasses Using Your Cell Phone

Remember when I talked about department stores getting high-tech by installing virtual mirrors and butt cameras? Well the eye glasses chain Megane Top in Japan is now offering "virtual fittings" by allowing shoppers to use their cell phones to try on glasses. To take part in this mobile fitting experience, customers need to upload a photo of themselves on their phone and then apply different glasses to their face using the store's server. The best part is the fact that you can browse pairs of glasses by using the store's mobile website. I don't know if I'd completely trust this method to decide on a pair of new specs, although I'm sure it would be fun to browse different styles on my phone! Thanks calamari! via Digital World Tokyo

I've never tried any of the programs that allow you to check your style before you do something, but I don't think it would really work for glasses. Whenever I go get new glasses I have to put them on and see how they feel.
