CES 2018: Smart mirror could use more of a human touch

CES 2018:  The final word.  (c|net, 1/16/2018)
While health tech is designed to make you feel better, the show also saw a parade of tech intended to make you look better. Products such as the HiMirror Mini and Neutrogena Skin360 SkinScanner and apps such as YouCam Makeup gave semiprofessional skincare analysis and advice, but they lacked the reassuring bedside manner of a dermatologist or the friendly assistance one expects from a visit to the beautician or even the makeup counter. So far, the technology is promising, but sorely needs a more human touch.

HiMirror offers 4 version:  mini, regular, plus, and plus+.  Prices range from $199 to $299.
