Smile Mirror

Smile Mirror is a smart and emotional mirror that allows users to see themselves only when they smile.

Initially designed for cancer patients, Smile Mirror aims to remind and encourage people to smile more often, and to view themselves smiling. Studies show that making a facial expression such as a smile can produce effects on the body that are similar to those resulting from the smile’s associated emotion of happiness. Through the combination of a glass mirror, a camera to detect facial movement and a processor board, Smile Mirror automates a therapeutic practice by providing a new way for people to express our most positive and loving selves.
