Did Apple’s Black Friday deals leave you disappointed? If so, we’ve got just the thing to reignite your enthusiasm for the Cupertino-based tech behemoth. Fittingly called Apple Mirror, it’s a futuristic touch-screen mirror that runs Apple’s iOS 10.

The Apple Mirror is the brainchild of New York-based web developer and graphic designer Rafael Dymek, and in the video above, he shows off exactly what it can do. Fun features include sending Facebook messages, playing music and videos and booking an Uber — all things you can do on an iPhone or iPad, but we have to admit they look a lot more exciting when they’re being done on a giant mirror screen. The Apple Mirror also displays basic information like the weather, time and date.

One small criticism of the Apple Mirror is that apps open in windows, creating a slightly less polished look than you’d see on an iPhone or iPad. But even that’s not exactly a problem — after all, if you’ve got multiple windows open at once, the multitasking possibilities become almost endless.

Getting excited? We don’t blame you. Unfortunately, you may be out of luck if you want to add an Apple Mirror to your home — Dymek isn’t affiliated with Apple, and has said the Apple Mirror is a personal project that he won’t be looking to monetize.

“I admire Apple’s vision and approach to creating revolutionary products. My only goal for this project was to create something useful that I could see myself using,” he said.

Still, given the incredibly enthusiastic response to Dymek’s creation, we can’t help but hope that Apple will take note. Holiday miracles are possible, right?
