CES has seen its share of smart mirrors, and this year, Griffin Technology is hoping the idea finally succeeds.
Their product is simply called Connected Mirror and it’s a shiny, reflective surface that connects to your home Wi-Fi network to show local time and weather and any notifications. Missed from your phone, as well as updates from any other Griffin device under your roof (their catalog includes app-enabled phone chargers, linked coffee machines and even a Bluetooth toaster).
Those updates will appear whenever you touch the mirror’s capacitive surface, then disappear when you finish them. You can also use the Griffin’s app to connect to a mirror to choose what information you want it to display.
However, there is no cheap one. When launched in late 2017, the Griffin’s Connected Mirror will cost an amazing $ 1,000 (around £ 810 or AU $ 1,390, equivalent estimate). For that price – and without any notable third-party integrations to get smart home buyers excited about it – it’s hard to see this as more than just a luxury niche.
However, this Not the only smart mirror we saw at this year’s CESSo maybe this is an untapped list ready to emerge. We’ll keep an eye on it.
