Smart mirrors that display messages, videos and other info on them sound like something from a fairy tale or far into the future. However, we have the technology for these smart mirrors already. People have been DYI’ing them for a while, and there are a few available now. The DYI options mean a lot of time spent finding parts and getting the code to work on your hardware, and the current prebuilt systems don’t perform. Luckily, one Kickstarter has built a smart mirror that’s affordable and packed with features.
The mirror can stream videos, display messages and notifications, show morning commutes, weather updates, and has an HD camera built in. There is also audio, voice recognition, and in the works, there is virtual jewelry and 3rd party apps in the pipeline. The mirror has anti-fogging glass, built in Wifi, 2GB of RAM, 2 GHz Quad-Core processor, Bluetooth, and a speaker.
The mirror will retail for $449, but if you act quickly, you can snag the Perseus Mirror for only $249. The Kickstarter has raised $80,000 of its $100,00 with only seven days to go!
Tell us in the comments below if you’re going to back the campaign to snag on of the Perseus Mirrors. Also, don’t forget to tell them we sent you their way!
