We’ve seen some fantastic uses of the excellent Android over the last few months; and not just as the awesome open OS in an ever-growing (and world-dominating) range of smartphones and tablet PCs, either. Take our flying Dutchman from back in March, for example, with his Android/arm-driven air machine, or the hugely exciting idea of Google’s forthcoming Android-powered Augmented Reality glasses, due with us this year.
Then there’s this…
Freshly unveiled at the annual eye-popping festival of mobile tech, the Smartphone and Mobile Expo in Japan, this is the world’s first Android mirror. Here comes the science: an LCD monitor overlaid with a sheet of semi-transparent reflective glass linked to an Android tablet, although still at the prototype stage, the day could soon be upon us when we can browse weather reports, check stocks and shares, and catch up on the news while brushing our teeth, squeezing spots or just looking for grey hairs.
Using RF technology to free us from fingerprint streaky mirror hell, the glass-act from Seraku can bring up apps with a single movement and, potentially, make the hours you spend wallowing in self-obsessed, human-budgie-esque vanity far more industrious. Or at least far more entertaining.
No word yet on when this miraculous mirror might become commercial available, but hands up who wants one now?
