Duo is an IoT mirror with the ability to inform people on the weather, control the temperature, light or dim a room, provide traffic updates and much more

Having a butler to help us out with daily chores at home is not a reality for most of us, until now. A new smart, connected mirror called Duo acts as a personal butler with the ability to control the temperature, lighting in a room, traffic updates and much more. The AI mirror, created by a New York-based startup, is an information and entertainment hub that connects to other smart devices around your home and has the ability to display news, play videos and listen to music.

Owners are able to customize every aspect of the AI companion, named Albert,  including giving it a new name, gender, accent and even a sense of humor with an option called “Jokes.” Along with native apps, users can access an app store to extend the functionality of the AI mirror.

The 27-inch mirror can be hung anywhere in a home, though the company recommends that it be used for living rooms or bedrooms.

The creation of ‘smart furniture' that serves multiple design and functionary purposes is becoming a common place as brands such as IKEA are equipping furniture with digital, connected features.

The first 1,000 Duo units cost $399 with subsequent units costing $500. The company is expecting to start shipping pre-orders in October 2017.
