Japan's AGC brings AI to makeup routine with smart mirror

Glassmaker's new device combines actual and virtual cosmetics as COVID spreads

Users can apply virtual makeup while checking their image in AGC's new smart mirror. 

TOKYO -- Japanese materials manufacturer AGC has developed a smart mirror that allows customers to apply makeup while receiving visual advice from beauty professionals on the same glass sheet -- a creation with the potential to help maintain social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The product, comprising a special mirror placed atop a built-in monitor, can also let users try out various cosmetics virtually and check the results quickly in the mirror after making choices.
