Listening to music while getting ready for the day is an easy way to make the whole experience go faster. The Open Mirror from Digital Habitat(s) integrates the music-enjoying experience into the routine of preparing for whatever awaits you when you live the house.
For everyday use, the mirror is oval-shaped with a slight break near the bottom. This break is actually a sliding joint that allows the bottom portion of the mirror to slide to the side, revealing an iPod dock.
Once your iPod is docked and keeping you entertained, you can control the music with just hand gestures. Even if your hands are wet or full, you can switch tracks or change the volume.
As an open-source design, plans for the Open Mirror are available for download. If you are inclined – and if you have the skills – the iPod dock/mirror can be constructed at home from a kit.
