The mirror updates automatically, and it will also respond to voice search. Braun is looking to add other capabilities like traffic updates, reminders and any other subject that works with Google Now.
Braun says that the display is thin, only a couple of mm thin, and it took only a couple hundred lines of code to get the UI to where it is now. He has experimented running it on Chromecast, Nexus Player and the Fire TV Stick. Max admits that he needs to select a platform and clean up the electronics inside.
For now, Max can keep up to date on what's going on in the world and check the weather outside his door every time he shaves in the morning.
