Spectral Mirrors are technologically advanced mirrors designed to assist elves as they get ready for the day. Many Elves dislike them, however, due to the Mirrors' brutally honest criticism. Their personalities are quite lifelike, though they are just cleverly programmed technology.
When standing a few feet away from the mirror, it will activate and turn on; walking outside this zone will cause the mirror to deactivate. Spectral mirrors have an auto-erase feature that allows it to intentionally forget information.
These specialty gadgets come in every shape, size, and style and appear to be normal mirrors - until someone steps within range. Then a tiny face appears in on of the corners and offers fashion and beauty advice with a surprisingly lifelike personality. No two spectral personas are the same, but they do share on common trait: unflinching honesty - which is likely why spectral mirrors fell out of popularity. Most elves weren't fans of getting insulted by their mirrors while they tried to get dressed.
