Bringing us one step closer to the notion of a real magic mirror, the
Thermo Mirror will take your temperature when you simply look into it.
Developed by NEC Avio Infrared Technologies Co Ltd, the non-contact
skin temperature measurement device integrated with a desktop mirror
called Thermo Mirror SX-01 was designed to detect fever caused by
viruses like the flu at company reception areas.
=93Skin surface temperature changes depending on surrounding
environment,=94 NEC Avio said. =93So, it is necessary to set a threshold
temperature in consideration of environment. We used know-how that has
been accumulated for many years by developing infrared thermography
Dimensions of the Thermo Mirror SX-01 are 125 (W) x 200 (H) x 66mm (D)
excluding its stand. Its weight is about 1.2kg. The prices of the
SX-01 is set to go on sale for $1,200 later this year. Via Nikkei
