On Tuesday, the tech giant was granted a patent for a blended reality mirror, which could superimpose virtual clothing onto your reflection.

It would also be capable of placing you in a virtual scene, like a beach or a restaurant, to match an outfit with the occasion.

According to the patent, the mirror would use a combination of mirrors, lights, projectors, displays and cameras to project the image of a certain setting onto the display.

It's not clear whether the mirror is currently in development at Amazon, but it hints at what the company's working towards.

Amazon declined to comment.
