Ubiquitous Computing

Revolutionizing your bathroom experience

av Emil Johansson - 2011-03-01

This project was conducted by a group of students for the course Ubiquitous Computing during the fall of 2009 in the Department of Interaction Design at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. The goal of the course is to promote computerized experiences in every day life and with the HUD Mirror these students did just that.

In the fall of 2009 Niklas Andersson, Onur Kurt, Linda Nilsson, Maziar Shalbaf and Magnus Spånggård decided to enhance our every day bathroom experience. They wanted to do so by making a fun, informative and interactive mirror. By using a two way mirror, LEDs and LDRs they made what you can see above. The LDRs allow you to control the mirror by shading the buttons.

The mirror features several functions you might be interested of while getting ready in the morning. It shows the time, weather, temperature outside and a much appreciated toothbrush timer.

If you are interested in the project, take a moment, and go through their report. The report also feature the source code used.
