Mirror, mirror on the wall -- is this the smartest mirror of them all?


It's 2016 and we live in a digitally savvy world where smart TVs, smart watches and smart phones dominate our everyday lives. And it doesn't stop there.

The new realm of "smart" technology has moved into our bathrooms with a major accessory -- the smart mirror.

Hi Mirror is the ultimate beauty consultant available right in the comfort (and privacy!) of your home.

Have you ever wondered if the eye cream you're using is actually working? Or if the $100 face serum you splurged on really does work better than your regular drugstore buy? Hi Mirror aims to tell you just that.

See images of the smart mirror:

The mirror uses facial recognition to keep track of your skin's health and protect the privacy of your beauty and fitness regimen and goals.

Your face's texture, firmness, brightness and clarity is tracked over time and lets you know if your skin changes based on the products you're are using. Not only are you able to keep an inventory of your beauty products in the mirror's ever-expanding database but, it can also let you know when it's time to use a certain cream or oil again.

For example, if you're experiencing redness or extreme dryness, it will remind you to bust out your favorite products that tackle those exact issues -- and incorporate them into your daily routine.

If you're also looking to improve your fitness game, the Smart Body Scale (which is available to purchase separately) syncs up to your Hi Mirror and in similar fashion, tracks everything from your BMI to your muscle mass.

Smart mirror, indeed.
