Max Braun, a software engineer at Google, has hacked together an incredible smart mirror that makes use of the wonderful platform that is the Internet of Things.

This smart mirror displays a whole bunch of information ranging from weather forecasts and traffic updates to any information compatible with a Google Now card. The current prototype of this incredible smart mirror also displays news headlines as well as other pertinent information. It's truly a fine technological accomplishment given that it is functional yet stylish.

The mirror's display is only a couple of millimeters thin, and the inside is home to a vast array of electronics. While the product isn't refined yet, it's already incredibly impressive and futuristic in conception.

This smart mirror is a great example of what can happen when the Internet of Things and the Google Now service are harnessed with purpose and direction.
