What can a smart mirror?

More recently, the Internet shook the news: Purdue Institute students took first place at the electronic know-how exhibition with their unique invention. They presented to the public a smart mirror - a cybergadget that can not only reflect the image, but also provide the necessary information.

Smart mirror: the ultimate failure or new perspectives?

Even outwardly, a smart mirror is different from the usual one, since it constantly displays the date, current time and weather forecast. But it is in sleep mode, and being active, it becomes much more informative.

The sensor of recognition of the faces which is built in in it works at approach of the person and brings to a mirror surface, as on the monitor, data which are interesting to you. This can be either the results of the last match, or a list of unread e-mail messages.

Young inventors are sure: this is just the beginning. With proper refinement, a smart mirror can become a central gadget in the house that controls the operation of other devices.

It should be noted that the idea of ​​creating a cyber mirror is not new. A few years earlier, it was brought to life by James Lowe, who created his smart mirror based on the Linux system. It went complete with floor scales and was capable not only to acquaint its owner with the latest news, but also to display data on its weight. But that's not all. This electronic device allows you to access your account on the social network and gives a beep informing you of how much time is left until you leave the house.

Despite the versatility, the invention of Low was not appreciated by his compatriots and did not find wide distribution. Now manufacturers are thinking about the possibility of finding another use for the cyber mirror.

Considers options for using it in the fashion industry. For example, to create cyber samples, when the image of the selected dress is superimposed on the figure. Electronic gadget can find its place in beauty salons. There is an idea to give it the ability to determine the type of client's skin and the presence of flaws in it, which the master will then try to remove.

In our Fatherland, a smart mirror will most likely not appear soon. But do not be upset. The computer and the smartphone will give you plenty of information, and it is much more pleasant to try on clothes personally. If you really want to make your mirror unusual, add a 3D effect to it, especially since we know how to do it:
