NY Times’ Data-Bearing ‘Magic Mirror’ For Your Bathroom
The research & development group at the NY Times company demonstrates a bathroom mirror loaded with tech.
This new device for the home, with the working title of ‘magic mirror,’ was witnessed by Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab on a visit to the New York Times Company’s R&D lab. It’s a data-bearing mirror that uses the Microsoft Kinect and voice recognition technology to read physical and verbal cues. It also uses the NY Times’ APIs to provide info on-demand.
