An Android-Powered Mirror for Your Smart Bathroom
Japanese company Japanese company Seraku aims to make your network a little more ubiquitous with a prototype design for an Android-powered mirror. It uses RF proximity sensors to detect where your hands are placed so that you don’t have to smudge it all up in order to check those sports scores, and the display unit here at Smartphone and Mobile Expo included a networked scale built into the floor. There’s also a meter that displays water flow and temperature information on the mirror. Overall, it reminds us a lot of the Smart Window prototype design we saw from Samsung at CES, although not as responsive or as fully fleshed out.
An Android tablet is powering everything behind the scenes, but the display is a separate LCD monitor overlaid with a semitransparent piece of reflective glass.
