    Abstract

    In this paper, we propose a personalized display, "AwareMirror: an augmented mirror". AwareMirror presents information relevant to a person in front of it by super-imposing his/her image. A toothbrush has been chosen as an identification tool while proximity sensors have been utilized to detect a person's position (in front of the mirror). Also, three types of information that can affect a user's decision have been selected. The mirror has been constructed using an acrylic magic mirror board and ordinal computer monitor. The acrylic board has been attached in front of the monitor, and only bright color from the display can penetrate the board. As a result of preliminary evaluation, we found that the mirror is useful to offer information in an unobtrusive manner while preserving its metaphor.
