Snap a photograph, please and thank you. Freaked out yet? It’s not a spy concept! This is a friendly through-camera photo session, and it goes all year around. This concept goes by the name “Daily you,” and it’s a mirror with a camera embedded into it. Each time you stand in front of the mirror in the morning to touch up your face (or whatever you do there), it detects you looking into it, focuses, and takes a single photograph. Once there is a collection of photos of your face, there’s a “Play” mode which can show you images by week, by month, or annually – or of course, however often you’d like.
As time goes on, the mirror will end up capturing so many photos that you’ll be able to track your most “natural” mirror expressions and see things like color trends in your clothing. As a bonus, basically, since this concept is already super neato, the device collects and uses solar energy as power in order to both save the environment and make a long-lasting piece of technology.
