Max Braun doesn’t just work for Google, he also thinks like Google – this is why he deserves a “Be like bill” meme. (If you want to know how to create yours, leave a comment )
Okay back to the gist, Max Braun created a smart bathroom mirror of his own, just like the ones you see in the movies, because …….why not?! He used a display panel, a two-way mirror, a control board, and various other supplies to create his magic mirror.
Even though this idea isn’t novel, Max’s mirror seems to be the most elegant one yet.
He wanted the mirror to function like the future promised in movies and since he wasn’t able to buy one, he created one himself using some simple APIs including one for the Associated Press, and one for Forecast.
The mirror updates automatically and will show the weather anytime he wakes up to shave.Did I mention the mirror responds to voice search? Yes, it does! Like how cool is that?
Braun is looking to add other capabilities like traffic updates, reminders and any other subject that works with Google Now.
Who wants to be like Max?
