While it resembles a prop from the harrowing second episode of Black Mirror, the Cybertecture Mirror is in fact very real. The James Law-made Cybertecture Mirror measures 37-inches across and has a 32-inch touchscreen panel built in.
There’s a selection of apps built in that’ll tell you what the weather’s like, play a YouTube video and post on Facebook while you’re getting dressed/brushing your teeth.
Cleverly there’s also a fitness app that measures your dumbell reps as well as a nicely titled ‘vanity’ mode – this turns everything off allowing you to apply make up or have a shave, i.e. use it as a normal mirror. Hats off to James Law for essentially rebranding a mirror’s primary purpose…
The Cybertecture Mirror also syncs with a sensor pad, which functions as a set of high-tech scales; you stand on the pad and then your weight is displayed on the screen. The ultimate narcissist’s wet dream?
Spotted by the eagle-eyes at Digital Trends, the Cybertecture Mirror’s features can be controlled by a remote (which comes included) or by an app – there’s both iOS and Android versions in the works naturally.
Connecting to the web via Wi-Fi, you’d presumably be able to throw video content to the Cybertecture Mirror using something like Netgear Genie from elsewhere in the home. We like the idea of running a hot bath, queuing up some Game of Thrones episodes on our laptop and then slinging them to the Mirror.
The screen of the Cybertecture Mirror is covered in fog-resistant glass so you can use it the second you step out of the shower. Connections-wise there’s an ethernet port at the base, next to AV connections and a power source.
As the Cybertecture Mirror is mains powered, you’ll need to leave 5cm of space underneath for wires; it’s got an IP rating of 23, so its well protected against water damage.
Costing a princely 60,000 HKD which converts to £4,800, you can order a James Lay Cybertecture Mirror from Tech2o, where it’s going for a little less at £3,500.
We’re just waiting for that lottery win to happen; we’ll take ten of these, along with a throne made out of gold-plated Motorola XOOMs.
