Mirror Can Free-up Spare Time and Displays Favorite Applications by Voice-Command

Concept name: Okure-Kagami

August 1, 2018 (Tokyo Japan) - Japan Display Inc. (JDI) today announced an IoT mirror that can change to a full-size or partial-size display , controlling applications by voice command. The mirror provides room to display date, time, weather, etc., to simplify a person's busy morning routine or offers more viewing space. We expect it may be used not only at home but also as a sales promotion tool in retail stores.

With this IoT mirror it is possible to switch from mirror to display. Some areas can show your requested applications, such as calendar, scheduler, weather, etc., whichever you like. Moreover, the integrated camera enables a unique function in this mirror, so that a person can check their appearance from the front, side, or any angle, after the photo data is shown on the mirror after a few seconds delay. The photo data could be sent to a smartphone, too.

This switching technology, from display to mirror, is a core technology in JDI. In this mirror, JDI has added new value, like quicker switching, brighter, and higher contrast compared to common mirror products. Moreover, in the non-active mirror-mode, it can easily blend into the home space and keep a sense of unity. JDI will continue developing this product by connecting to IoT devices and integrated AI in the future.

It is possible for a person to check their back with the unique mirror function, which takes a photo by the integrated camera and then shows the photo data a few second later in the mirror.
