“Smart Mirror” – Cindy Osmon, Distinguished Engineer
A smart mirror is a two-way mirror with an electronic display behind the glass. The display can show the viewer different kinds of information in the form of widgets, such as weather, time, date, and news updates. This product would be useful for busy individuals who want to multitask and stay informed while on the go. Instead of constantly pulling out a device, one could get informed while finishing daily grooming tasks.
“Shield” – Nirmala Ranganathan, Principal Product Manager
Envision how much to save for emergencies and how to protect against sudden hardships. This prototype uses behavioral science to help someone determine how much they should save for an emergency without sacrificing spending on things they value most.
