Say Hello to HiMirror

I always knew we Americans are pretty vain, and perhaps even a bit narcissistic, but this might be taking it just a little too far:

Apparently there’s now a voice-enabled smart beauty mirror that offers the ultimate in self-reflection.  Launching today in the United States, HiMirror offers in-depth, personalized skincare analysis. A companion Smart Body Scale can measure  weight, body mass index, body fat, water level content, muscle mass, bone weight, resting metabolism, and body type, and even suggest corresponding exercise solutions.


HiMirror measures 11 inches by 16.5 inches, is humidity-resistant, and can be installed in a bathroom, closet, or bedroom, affixing to a wall or a mirror.  An integrated  camera and proprietary technology offers 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 health.

WiFi-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 barcode, with reminders sent for any product expirations. HiMirror comes with a mobile app, letting you track and tweak your skincare needs on the go.

“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, makers of HiMirror. “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.”
