The MIRROR, armed with a temperature/humidity sensor, keeps the glass clear regardless of the mist coming from your shower.
“The ‘Mirror’ idea was conceived in my previous work in the tiles and ceramics industry. I observed that one of my pet peeves of luxury home owners was mirror spots, the black spots on a mirror due to oxidation of the reflective mercury layer. The main cause being excess moisture seeping into the mirror foundation in humid bathrooms,” founder and director Jonathan Yuan said in a recent interview with Tech Bytes for Tea.

Equipped with advanced air purifying technologies, MIRROR is capable of eliminating harmful pollutants, generates fresh air, all while deodorizing the surrounding area.
“Thoughts of creating a well-engineered and well-designed mirror that would be free from black spots due to oxidation, married with smart functionality of an advanced tablet, and even air purifying technologies to remove bathroom odor come to mind,” Yuan explained.
FRED Technologies designed MIRROR to be highly intuitive with a user-friendly capacitive touch panel that runs on the Android 5.0 interface. The best part: MIRROR is a fully-autonomous smart device running separately from your smartphone.
