Bath­room cam­eras

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - NA­TION & WORLD -

French com­pany CareOS show­cased a smart mir­ror that lets you “try on” dif­fer­ent hair­styles. Fa­cial recog­ni­tion helps the mir­ror’s cam­era know which per­son in a house­hold is there, while aug­mented-re­al­ity tech­nol­ogy over­lays your ac­tual im­age with an­i­ma­tion on how you might look.

CareOS ex­pects ho­tels and sa­lons to buy the $20,000 Artemis mir­ror — mak­ing it more im­por­tant that personal data is pro­tected.“We know we don’t want the whole world to know about what’s go­ing on in the bath­room,” co-founder Chloe Szulzinger said.

The mir­ror doesn’t need an in­ter­net con­nec­tion to work, she said. The com­pany says it will abide by Europe’s stronger pri­vacy rules, which took ef­fect in May.
