With everyone now looking at a future with smart homes, it will only take some time before the technology of today will find itself into more and more homes. And in expecting smart homes would need new smart appliances and devices, companies like Seraku from Japan are developing just that. What the company recently unveiled is its Smart Washstand and Mirror at the Smartphone and Mobile Expo held recently in Japan.

The Smart Washstand and Mirror is just one of those new concepts that would really fit into the standard definition of a smart home. This unique washstand comes with a mirror that also doubles as a display screen which provides a wide selection of menu features. This concept makes it possible for people to either go online or gather data even while in the bathroom. The Smart Washstand and Mirror runs on Android. And since touching the mirror to access the interactive menu displayed can soil it up, a sensor has been integrated so that just a sweep of the hand on the mirror will activate the display without even touching the mirror.

The Smart Washstand and Mirror can be connected to the Web via wired LAN, wireless LAN or even on 3G. It can be a perfect addition to a smart home in the future for those who can’t decide on whether to stay online or go check themselves out in the mirror. With the Smart Washstand and Mirror by Seraku, they can now do both. The only existing model of the Smart Washstand and Mirror is its demo model. But the company is expecting to manufacture them in the very near future. It is expected to cost from 4 to 5 million Yen, not really that cost-effective for ordinary households. But who knows, it might just become a common fixture in most smart homes in the near future.
