Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne with a preview of the fitting room of the future. A New York technology designer has developed a new digital mirror. It's equipped with infrared technology that sends a live video feed to any cell phone or e-mail account. That means shoppers can get friends' opinions on outfits remotely.
