Abstract: This paper describes the design and development of a futuristic interactive mirror which can be placed in the washroom that presents an unobtrusive interface for the ambient washroom environment. The mirror provides natural means of interaction through which the user is able to do some control mechanisms. The mirror displays information's like date, time, day of the week, water level in the overhead tank and temperature of the water in the pipeline. The control mechanism includes the control of water level, temperature and removal of fog raised on the surface of the mirror. Emphasis is also given to ensure convenience in accessing these services with a simple user interface. A service-oriented architecture has been adopted to develop and deploy the various functionalities like display and Corresponding control mechanism in both manual and automatic mode.
