Mirror speaks more than a word. It reflects the crude reality, but now, it is going to pour news, audio, video and text in front of you. It becomes more than an imaging tool. You can check your mail, text someone and read the news. It is magical equipment for those who are very busy and can’t find space for these types of stuff.
It’s not the script of any science fiction. Yes, technology makes all this happen with a smart mirror. Before moving forwards and exploring its advantage, use and efficiency of it,let’s know what it is first. What is a smart mirror and how is it smarter than a regular mirror?
Basically, it is a bi-directional mirror with an electronic display embedded in it. It can show user various type of information.
Which company is making it?
Capstone connects home revealed it in CES 2019. It comes with Google Assistant feature as well as Bluetooth connectivity.
How does it work?
Connection with other devices
It can be connected through tablet also. The features of a tablet, running of an installed app and playing a video which resides in a table can be displayed in the mirror with the help of Chromecast-esque proprietary technology.
Connection with middleware
You can connect it with a HUB which could be your Amazon Alexa or any other middleware and associate other devices with it. If you want to open web-browser, open it on your PC and connect to mirror. Now, you do not need to stick to your PC, just prepare yourself for office in front of the mirror and surf on it through voice control or Google Assistant.
Touch screen: It is very handy in use, you can control it with the voice as well as by scrolling the screen along with brushing your teeth as it comes with the touch screen facility.
Voice recognition: It can recognize six different types of voice. It means it runs differently for a different person and can’t overlap the work, i.e. two different individuals can open their email on a single mirror.
Design: The slim and flashy look with two LED can flourish your workplace, bedroom or bathroom. The 20-22 inch screen gives you the right makeup feel.
Digital Assistant: It can be handled by your personal assistant, and so you can command it to change music or video even while you are taking a bath.
Satisfactory sound: It has not a very powerful speaker, but is ok. You can connect it with any speaker via Bluetooth.
It is a very new concept which is initiated by Capstone enterprise and has to go long way. It will definitely be going to change the whole domestic, bathroom and office experience.
