Cebit is always a great place to see the latest in technology from top and innovative companies, but there was one company that had something pretty unique and unprecedented to display. Developed by German customer loyalty specialist DGMK, Dirror claims to be the world’s first multimedia digital mirror. A pretty good description of what we can expect from the mirror was listed on the Cebit website:
“DIRROR is designed to help users experience digital applications in a completely new way – by linking up different aspects of day-to-day life so they can be controlled from a central hub. From choosing music, adjusting lighting and checking news, traffic and weather updates right through to shopping online, trying on clothes and ordering, there are virtually no limits to the ways the mirror can be used. Fully equipped with a high-definition touchscreen, integrated speakers and voice control technology, DIRROR makes organizing daily life easier and more enjoyable than ever before. Combining cutting-edge technology with a homely style, this is a real taste of just how effective smart household furnishings can be in delivering digitalization that is geared towards people and their lives.”
Until I personally get to try a smart mirror I can’t really make any judgements, but the idea of using a smart mirror as a “hub” of sorts for your house is pretty interesting. If it’s really as flexible and dynamic as the company claims, a mirror in your bedroom or living room could be your one-stop-shop to control the functions of your home and stay connected with the outside world. Take a look at the video below for a little bit of DIRROR in action.
