There's more than meets the eye with the mirror photo booth

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Mirror, mirror on the ground, who's the fairest you have found? Well, everyone really. There's a new type of mirror to gaze into out there, only this one makes a permanent image.

At first glance, it's just a box, but there is much more to see inside. However, if you look more closely, you can see it's a whole lot more than that.

Ben Weinert with BK Entertainment first laid eyes on, well, himself really, in the magic mirror around the first of 2018, and somehow, it's categorized as a photo booth.

"We found this magic mirror photo-booth that nobody had around here, and we just fell in love with the idea and said, 'Well, let's do it,'" Weinert said.

Everybody loves a photo booth, but a photo mirror; well that's next level stuff there, and yes, it's interactive with a touch screen.

"So everything that you see on top of the mirror is really from behind the mirror in a projection from a TV screen through a computer, but it appears on the mirror almost as that magic mirror on the wall kind of thing, so it appeals to a lot of different people from kids to brides to corporate events," Weinert stated.

And it was pretty popular at the National Night Out Kickoff party at Maude Cobb in Longview. Kids don't really care that it's really ...

"Infra-red strip around the outside so that it's a touch screen, interactive technology," Weinert offered.

"So it's all smoke and mirrors?" I asked.

"Yeah, it's all smoke and mirrors," Weinert said with a laugh.

"Although, hopefully not much smoke," I said.

"That's right, Yeah if there's smoke we're going to file an insurance claim," Weinert aid with a smile.

And he can put pretty much anything around the borders.

"All the graphics are customizable, the photo print out is customizable. You can do a 4x6 printout or you can do 2x6, the traditional photo strips," Weinert said.

It's pretty irresistible, and it will even send the picture by email or text.

Weinert says the mirror is not cheap, but if his gigs keep rolling in, he'll have it paid for in about a year. He also says as far as he knows he has one of three between Tyler and Shreveport.
