The Future Of Bathroom & Cosmetics – The Medical Futurist

The Future Of Bathroom & Cosmetics – The Medical Futurist


In case we don’t end up in a dystopia, where
water is a scarce commodity and it’s use is strictly regulated and portioned, we can
anticipate some great innovations in our bathrooms. Here are the five best ones:
One. Smart mirrors. A few years from now, a magic mirror won’t
be a thing of fairy tales anymore. In partnership with L’Oreal, Memomi and
ModiFace have developed mirrors with augmented reality. They provide you with personalized beauty
tips and help you choose the best makeup to your outfit or allow you to virtually try
on different hair colors. Two. Dress-up apps. Even today, anyone could have that and you
don’t even need a desktop computer for it. Our smartphones can help us pick the best
outfit for any given day with the right dress-up app. But Amazon’s Echo Look, takes it one step
further. It allows you to take hands-free selfies and
evaluate your fashion choices through machine learning. Three. Skin Scanners. Cosmetics companies have been developing skin
scanners and hair analyzers to inspect our beauty-related body parts and be able to offer
more personalized solutions for a better and healthier look. For example, Neutrogena’s SkinScanner attaches
to your smartphone, takes a high-resolution image of your skin and measures its moisture
content. It rates your skin from a 1-100 scale and
the AI-enabled app shows how it’s improving over time. Four. Smart toilets. Japan is currently reinventing what we think
a toilet could be. As weird as it sounds they have advanced features
like heated seats, germ resistant surface, warm water jets, touch screen control, and
some even play classical music to relax you. Yeah, they took it too far… But in the future, various sensors might be
applied into th e toilet to measure your vital signs and health parameters. Imagine microchips, similar to the MC10 biostamps,
logging urine information – and notifying you or your doctor if something is different
than the usual. Five. Smart scales not only give you data about
your weight, but your overall health. The Qardio smart scale and full body composition
analyzer changed the numbers on the scale to smiles in order not to cause any distress
to users. The intelligent body analyzer from Withings
measures your weight, your body composition as well as your heart rate instantly and transfers
the results to your smartphone. Thus, our bathrooms will be more connected,
more personalized and will know a lot more about our health than today. And will there be robots there? Well, we are not quite there yet.
