For those who don't mind spending some extra time in the bathroom in the mornings, Ryan Nelwan has created a smart touchscreen mirror that can serve many of the same functions as regular tablets.
The creative mirror supports widgets and can play music and videos. It can also browse for pictures on the Internet, complete with a virtual keyboard. The mirror also has volume control and can manage the temperature of the user's home heating system with Nest integration.
The mirror is the perfect representation of how smart technologies are being used in what were once regular household items. The fact that this mirror is thin and aesthetically pleasing while performing like an extremely large tablet shows that style and quality do not need to be compromised in order to create innovative technologies. While not a necessity, this mirror would be a fun and potentially useful addition to home bathrooms.
