The Wize Mirror diagnoses everything wrong with your health based on your reflection and this is by far one of the greatest tech-science breakthroughs we’ve seen in a while. This intelligent mirror, called the ‘Wize Mirror‘ will be your own personal doctor. Well, at least until you’ll notice that you have to visit a specialist.
The Wize Mirror works with ultra advanced sensors which go beyond skin deep in order to find out what your minor and major health problems are based simply on your reflection. It can tell if you had a lot to drink, or if you started eating too much fast-food, alerting you about your cholesterol and on your chances of getting diabetes.
The ‘Wize Mirror’ is currently under development by 11 European research groups and it will be the first diagnosis test in the world that doesn’t require a blood or urine sample.
“We want to give people the possibility to monitor themselves,” says Massimo Martinelli, an engineers working on the Semeoticons project. “We would like them to change their lifestyle, so we suggest information about diet, alcohol consumption, physical activity, and smoking.”
The mirror‘s glass, a series of ‘multispectral’ cameras will be placed and they will be able to check blood flow, face oxygenation and other health signs from your body, based on the amount of green light that is absorbed and returned.
One of the cameras behind the Wize Mirror will use ultraviolet light in order to illuminate “advanced glycation end products” (AGEs), which are substances that have been linked with diabetes and other diseases. The Wize Mirror will also include a breathalyzer that will be able to detect blood sugar levels, alcohol and smoking.
“The idea is to put it in people’s houses, or at gyms and pharmacies,” Massimo Martinelli says. “You don’t have to wear anything, so it’s really easy.”
