If there were an iOS powered Apple iMirror, it would look exactly like this (VIDEO)



Back in February, we told you about a gentleman named Max Braun who used two-way glass, some components, API's for the Associated Press and Forecast, and created a smart mirror. With a couple hundred lines of code, the mirror responds to voice search and updates automatically. Now, another do-it-your-selfer by the name of Rafael Dymek has created his version of a smart mirror, this time making it look like iOS 10 is running the show.  

While we're not sure if cracking this mirror brings seven years of bad luck, there is plenty of functionality. The time and date are in the upper right corner, with the weather in the upper left. All of the apps work; thus, the mirror can be used to watch Netflix, (try that while shaving), read the news, call for a Uber, play streaming music, and adjust the temperature of a smart thermostat. The UI disappears after 45 seconds, turning it into a regular mirror. Tapping on it will awaken the smart mirror. The app icons can be moved anywhere on the mirror.

We wonder how many of you might be interested in having a smart mirror hanging up in your bedroom. It might come in handy during those times when you're trying to get things done while rushing to get dressed.

Check out the iOS based smart mirror in action by clicking on the video at the top of the story. And keep in mind that this is not an official Apple device.

iPhoneArena posted this because it has an iOS feel into it. They love everything that is Apple. They think this is new and Apple should do it so that people will think Apple is innovating and did this first. Little did I know, the concept is nothing new. You can search on YT about smart mirror dated before this video.

MS already has mirrors in Taiwan in clothing stores where people can get an idea of how they would look in certain clothes. It uses a lot of kinect like sensors and stuff to get all the dimensions of a person and customize the viewing experience.
