Taiwan, 13th Oct., 2016, Red Newswire/-

The latest in smart home devices is here. This time in the form of a smart mirror from HiMirror, a subsidiary of New Kinpo Group, a global electronics manufacturing services and original design manufacturing company. The new mirror, its makers say, will analyze your skin and recommend what kind of beauty products and skin care you need to employ.

The device is approximately 11 inches x 16.5 inches and can be set up anywhere– your bedroom, hallway, bathroom or even outdoors. This is possible because the electronic mirror is humidity resistance. Along with the general looking glass, the setup consists of a high-resolution camera that captures your image and a built-in proprietary software that analyzes these images.

The HiMirror will allow users to analyze any makeup-free image to detect flaws like dark spots, red spots, dark eye circles, wrinkles, pores, fine lines and other complexion elements. Based on this, the mirror will then create a personalized Skin Index Synthesis report. This will consist of factors like skin firmness, brightness, texture, clarity and overall healthiness.

Using this index, the smart device will then recommend the type of skin care you should opt for and much more.

“We are excited to bring to market the first-ever smart beauty mirror, truly revolutionizing the modern beauty routine,”

said Simon Shen, CEO of Taipei-based New Kinpo Group, in a statement.

“HiMirror is a technology-driven tool that will become indispensable for consumers — an essential part of their daily beauty routine, helping them evaluate their skin and what works for their individual skincare needs.”

The HiMirror also supports a number of widgets including weather, clock, Spotify and other social networks.

The device will cost you $189 for the standard mirror and $259 for the device with multi-ambiance makeup light. There are also a number of accessories you can couple with this device.
