Mirror mirror, on the wall. What shade works best with my skin tone in this light?
HiMirror is introducing a smart beauty mirror today that analyzes your skin.
The company says its mirror is like having a beauty and health consultant in your home every day. The HiMirror recommends what kind of beauty products you should buy based on your skin condition, local weather, and other factors.
It costs $189 for the standard mirror and $259 for the device with multi-ambiance makeup light. The product is a companion for the Smart Body Scale ($79), which provides body and weight analysis and corresponding exercise solutions.
HiMirror is approximately 11 inches x 16.5 inches, and it is humidity-resistant. It can be installed in a bathroom, closet, or bedroom walkway by easily affixing it to a wall or a mirror. An integrated high-resolution camera and proprietary technology offer in-depth complexion analysis.
By taking a makeup-free photo, HiMirror detects dark spots, red spots, dark eye circles, wrinkles, pores, fine lines, and other complexion elements. From these, it creates a personalized Skin Index Synthesis report — an evaluation of skin firmness, brightness, texture, clarity, and overall healthiness.
Wi-Fi-connected and Bluetooth-enabled, HiMirror can also display the local weather, sync with Google Calendar, and even play Spotify. With its facial and voice recognition capabilities, HiMirror can also assist multiple family members, tracking their individual skin needs and recommendations.
HiMirror keeps an ongoing log of your skin to track skincare goals and the results of products used. It also allows users to provide feedback on products. Your skincare products can be scanned into the system by bar code, with reminders sent for any product expirations. HiMirror comes with a mobile app, letting you track and tweak your skin care needs on the go.
Accessories being rolled out along with HiMirror include Smart Body Scale, which allows users to measure their weight, body mass index, body fat, water level content, muscle mass, bone weight, resting metabolism, body type, etc.
“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.”
HiMirror is a subsidiary of New Kinpo Group, a global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and original design manufacturing (ODM) company.
