Stocco Maitre: The Tech in the Mirror
Nowadays almost every gadget or appliance has that Transformers "more than meets the eyes" gimmick going. Some do it better than others.The market has been saturated with USB flash drives made to look like conch shell to cute jewelry and everything in between. Now your bathroom accessories are getting into the act.
From Italian high-end company bathroom furniture and design company F. lli Stocco comes the Maitre bathroom mirror. At first glance, it looks like your average mirror until you spot the touch screen console in the bottom right corner. The console controls an integrated radio, clock, a mirror demister with a sensor, and a barometer (although why one needs to measure atmospheric pressure in the bathroom is beyond us). The best feature has to be the built in mp3 player so you can rock out to your favorite tunes while you shower.
Available with an exterior or integrated lamp, the mirror comes in sizes ranging in 90cm to over 2m. The Maitre can also be purchased with or without a Stucco bathroom collection. While this mirror is definitely high tech it would be nice if they included a self-cleaning function. With all the fingerprints that are bound to accumulate, you're going to need a lot of Windex to keep this mirror sparkling.
