Parnassos / interactive bathroom mirror


The average time spent in front of the bathroom mirror is 20 minutes daily. Time that can be used: news, weather forecast, agenda and other handy information is provided by Parnassos, an interactive mirror. In case of illness you get immediate medical advice in the intimate environment of your bathroom, without having to take the arduous journey to the doctor or infecting other people on the way there. In order to keep the surface clean from fingerprints, the mirror is operated using voice command or gesture control. Thanks to a HD camera you can zoom in closely and an additional back view camera allows you to inspect your hairstyle properly.
