A smart mirror that makes people's daily lives productive and delightful
My process began with the daily observation of my roommate’s habit of looking in the mirror in the morning. I conducted 5 interviews and crowdsourcing research through Quora with the purpose of gaining better understanding of people’s daily routines and their needs. I asked them how many times they look at themselves in the mirror at home and usage habits.

Here's what my roommates have to say about their experience in front of the mirror.
Behavior Problem Statement
From my observations, people tend to check themselves and simultaneously multitask.
People look in the mirror at least once a day. People spend only a few minutes in front of the mirror before they go out and go to bed. Even though it is a very short moment, it is a crucial one for people.
From primary research, I heard insightful stories and found opportunities from problems that people had. I developed three "how might we" statements.
How might a mirror help people get relevant information?
How might a mirror interact with a user and create delightful moments?
How might a mirror make people’s lives more productive everyday?
How might we design an early morning ritual experience that enables people to be more productive?
Imagine having your day presented to you in a smart mirror,
where you can check the plans for that day.
