The 'Novera' is a smart mirror design concept that was created to provide companionship for lonely people. The design currently only exists as a prototype and boasts the ability to carry out conversations with a user, as well as respond accordingly to emotions by reading one's facial expressions.

The mirror is made up of a camera, a speaker and a monitor display, where the dialogue that comes from the mirror can also be read in the form of text-style speech bubbles. As well as being able to conduct conversations, the mirror also has the ability to answer questions, like many other smart devices with digital assistants that are available today.

Novera offers the voices of three fictional male anime characters, which are actually voiced by three well-known voice actors in Japan.
