EIT ICT Labs and Telekom Innovation Laboratories have built Looking Glass, an interactive shop window. When interacting with the Looking Glass, people see themselves on a screen as in a mirror, and can play with virtual objects.
Looking Glass was deployed for six weeks in the innovative 4010 Telekom Shop in Berlin, Mitte, where thousands of people played with it.
The team of mobile and physical interaction of Telekom Innovation Laboratories conducted a study on how people can notice whether a shop window is interactive. The resulting paper was awarded a best paper award at the CHI 2012, the premier conference on human-computer interaction.

Looking Glass was completed within the EIT ICT Labs' Smart Spaces action line, in the Public Living Labs activity.
