Capstone Connected Home debuts a smart mirror that lets you chat with Google Assistant while you get ready in the morning.
The touchscreen mirror allows you to download apps from the Google Play store, stream YouTube and ask Google Assistant anything you would in a standard smart speaker. You can also compose emails and messages by typing directly on the mirror.
Voice control in the mirror can recognize six different voices and log users in and out of Google accounts. The company says this method still keeps user data private.
The mirror does require the Capstone Connected Control Hub. The hub is also a touchscreen device, like a tablet, that acts as the command center for the mirror.
You can hang the Capstone Smart Mirror or stand it up on a counter. The mirror will be available in multiple sizes, beginning with a 19-inch by 22-inch model in early 2019. Pricing information is not yet available.
