What are the benefits of a smart mirror?


I did an assignment which involved developing a smart mirror; to make it more valuable I added educational resources. Through this I was trying to convey that a smart mirror can be used globally in areas that don't facilitate education. The idea is if there's a smart mirror in most public areas for anyone to use no matter the wealth, life would be easier for those who want to learn by accessing the educational resources on the smart mirror. Anything that needs to be filtered out or identities of certain people that need to be saved can also be programmed into the smart mirror and be saved. This is just one way of thinking about the benefits of a smart mirror that will actually make an impact in your or someone else's life, but what are some other benefits? #programming #stem #technology

A smart mirror is a device that functions as a mirror with additional capability of displaying multimedia data, such as text, images, and videos. This device allows users to access and interact with contextual information, such as weather data, seamlessly as part of their daily routine. SmartReflect is a software platform for developing smart mirror applications. The main features of SmartReflect are threefold: (1) It is modular, lightweight, and extensible; (2) It allows developers to sidestep the sandboxed environment created by web browsers; and (3) It supports plugins written in any programming languages. These improvements alleviate the hardware and software limitations inherent with the use of web browsers as a primary scriptable display method.
