Mirrors are a great way to enhance any room, plus they’re also essential for taking selfies at home and in fitting rooms. If, you know, you’re into #selfies. Unfortunately, most mirrors are just sheets of glass reflecting what’s in front of them. Fortunately, there’s now Selfie Mirror, a smart device that enables you to take hands free selfies and so much more.
The Selfie Mirror comes in two versions for home and “business” users. Home users primarily benefit from the mirror’s balance of fun and practicality. The mirror for example serves as a smart home controller, and also is an information dashboard that displays the date, time, weather, news, and other essential information. There is also a built-in Hi-Fi system that enables users to listen to their favorite music and playlists from their smartphone or cloud services.
In addition to being a device to help make life easier, there’s also a home security angle to the mirror. The built-in camera uses two-way surveillance with a motion sensor, plus the images can be transmitted to your smartphone in real-time. When you’re home, the mirror even connects to video door bells and video surveillance systems so that you always have a handle of what is going on from a central location.
The business version of the Selfie Mirror has a unique start screen that provides quick access to Uber, maps, TripAdvisor, and other “consumer”-relevant applications. Rather than taking a one size fits all approach to business needs, there are actually versions of the mirror specifically for clothing stores, restaurants, and beauty salons.
Despite the slim form factor, the mirror’s display is powered by an Android computer complete with 2GB RAM, a quad core processor, 16GB SD card, and 2 USB ports.
But now to the real raison d’être: there’s a built-in 16mp (4608 x 3456) camera that shoots 60fps video with full-HD 1080p support. To help make quality photos possible, there are also built-in professional LED lights that give off 2,000 lumens.
Since Selfie Mirror is powered by a full-featured Android computer, users are able to run virtually any application from Google Play. Social networks, photo effects, leisure, travel, smart home, and communication apps are just a few of the categories profiled on the product website.
Maybe even think really big Snapchatting…
You can purchase a 700 X 1200 mm Selfie Mirror for $399.00 and businesses are able to request custom sizes by order. Although the Selfie Mirror is live on the market, the original Indiegogo campaign died a pretty ugly death; it only raised $5,414 from 24 backers with a goal of $50,000. If only there were 24 people who wanted to take a selfie…
