Discovering the innovations on show at CeBIT in Hannover is always a great way to explore the latest stages in the evolution of technology. However, sometimes you come across something unprecedented that really seems to be the proverbial "missing link". Take DIRROR, for instance - developed by German customer loyalty specialist DGMK, the world's first multimedia digital mirror is celebrating its CeBIT première in Hannover this year, giving visitors a unique opportunity to try out the digital control center and its reflective multi-touch display for themselves.
DIRROR is designed to help users experience digital applications in a completely new way - by linking up different aspects of day-to-day life so they can be controlled from a central hub. From choosing music, adjusting lighting and checking news, traffic and weather updates right through to shopping online, trying on clothes and ordering, there are virtually no limits to the ways the mirror can be used. Fully equipped with a high-definition touchscreen, integrated speakers and voice control technology, DIRROR makes organizing daily life easier and more enjoyable than ever before. Combining cutting-edge technology with a homely style, this is a real taste of just how effective smart household furnishings can be in delivering digitalization that is geared towards people and their lives. But there’s one question we still can’t answer - does breaking the mirror result in seven years offline?
