As technology advances, interactive experiences will progress further and further away from the current state of computing with mobile devices. Historically, information was relayed through paper, then through computers, and in today’s day and age, predominately through smartphones. As interactive technology becomes increasingly prevalent in our homes, work places, and transit systems, we will begin to see interactive displays integrated into our lives – more seamless in network and less visible to the eye. With an increased emphasis on aesthetics in lives, the smart mirror is being utilized in applications ranging from commercial retail to home fitness.

A smart mirror is a two-way mirror with an electronic display behind the glass. The display can show the viewer different kinds of information in the form of widgets, such as weather, time, date, and news updates. Smart mirrors can come in all sizes from small table mirrors, to full bathroom mirrors. It is also possible to add voice commands using Amazon’s Alexa or Google ‘s Home Assistant. Smart mirrors will be increasingly utilized in functions such as house decor, home gyms, bathroom TVs, and retail applications such as cosmetics / fashion.

Smart mirrors can serve as decorative mirrors which can help enlarge both residential and commercial space while saving decorating costs. Aside from soaring ceilings and large windows, there is no better friend to a small space than a well-placed mirror. By expanding walls, amplifying light, breaking up visual clutter, mirrors can help to solve most design dilemmas. Unlike normal mirrors which only reflect real surroundings, smart mirrors can display the images you want – creating an aesthetic previously unavailable. Smart mirrors provide the ability to serve as a simulation window for a windowless enclosed room. This has proven useful as a method to improve working environments of the companies with crowded office spaces. Comparing with costs associated with relocating to a space with expensive rent, installing a smart mirror window is a much more cost-efficient solution.

Personal fitness remains a large industry and home gyms has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. With long days at the office, family responsibilities, as well as making time a social agenda, our schedules have become overwhelming. While it’s tempting to trade in a gym session for some quality time relaxing, a mirror gym provides an excellent solution for those who struggle to allocate time to exercise.

Separate from standard spin bikes or treadmills, a mirror gym offers a wide variety of exercises from yoga to barre, and even weight training. With a clear comparison between the proper form on the screen and your action on the mirror image, you can constantly work to improve your workouts with immediate feedback. The mirror gym is an excellent tool for people who want to work out in the privacy of their own homes.

I believe that in the near future, installing smart mirrors in residential bathrooms as well as commercial dressing rooms will be increasingly prevalent.

MetroClick has introduced a smart mirror with high resolution camera can be easily toggled on and off for privacy concerns. These two features plus the touch screen capabilities make the Smart Mirror compatible with a host of common applications.

The Smart Mirror has been designed work seamlessly with internet applications in order to provide timely information, such as news, weather, and calendar updates. Similar to modern smartphones, users are able to customize their dashboard in order to include all applications of interest.

In summary, the global smart mirror market is forecasted to grow at a rapid pace primarily due to increased adoption of smart home technology, integrating organic light emitting diodes in smart mirrors and increased adoption of smart mirrors in elevators, hotels, retail stores and bathrooms.
