BMind Smart Mirror from Baracoda

BMind, the smart mirror from Baracoda, wants to improve your well-being. Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who has the greatest wellness of all?

Daily healthtech pioneer Baracoda today unveiled BMind, the world’s first AI-powered smart mirror for mental wellness, acting as a health companion capable of identifying mood and helping manage stress. Built on a new generation smart mirror software from the CareOS platform, BMind provides personalized recommendations and experiences based on a user’s mental state, as part of a seamless, touchless experience with gesture recognition, voice command, and intent detection. BMind’s technology has recently been recognized with a 2024 Consumer Electronics (CES) Innovation Award in the smart home category.

BMind gathers information without any invasive technology, and helps users incorporate mindfulness practices into their daily routines or even curb feelings of loneliness through an immersive experience using light, sound, and visuals.

BMind is powered by Generative AI for conversation and coaching experiences as well as Natural Language Processing (NLP) for sentiment analysis. It identifies different sentiments and adapts to the user’s mood by providing light therapy sessions, and personalized, auto-generated mindfulness exercises such as guided meditation and self-affirmations.

I was reminded of another item from about 20 years ago - the Mirror Monitor from Philips research, which relied on good old electronic monitoring.

Philips Research in Germany announced on Friday that they have developed underwear that monitors your heart. The underwear can also dial 911 for you.

The comfortable heart monitor uses sensors woven into the fabric. These sensors detect electrical fluctuations on the skin surface, which in turn are used to determine how rapidly the heart is beating. Activity and stress levels can also be monitored. The ultimate goal of the project is to create a product that can be used to easily monitor important aspects of health for everyone - not just those who have medical problems. The following illustration shows a display built into a mirror; important personal health information is seen easily, in the course of your daily life.

As a computer-based life coach, it may remind some readers of the mobile persocom from Chobits, by Manga Clamp, published by Young Magazine in 2002.
