Inspired by Glass: Fitness Mirror Prototype at CES® 2017

Corning’s Fitness Mirror prototype, debuted at CES® 2017, enables the complete fitness experience on one surface

Do you ever wish you had a complete workout package – on-demand content, real-time biometric updates, nutrition plan, and personal trainer – all in one? With Corning’s Fitness Mirror prototype, which debuted at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, your fitness experience can now be more interactive and immersive.

Travel back to CES® 2017 with “Inspired by Glass” host, Maddie Gionet, from Corning to get a view of the interactive Fitness Mirror enabled by Corning’s advanced glass technologies featuring Beachbody® On Demand Content. Bill Bradford, chief digital officer at Beachbody®, joins Gionet to explain the benefits of the Fitness Mirror technology for the fitness industry.

“You have an experience like this providing you direct feedback while you’re working out – it goes way beyond putting a DVD into your TV and then just working out in your basement.”

- Bill Bradford, chief digital officer, Beachbody®

“The biggest New Year’s resolution is ‘I want to lose weight; I want to get in shape,’ but only 8 percent of people stick with their resolutions,” said Bradford. “What the fitness industry is doing right now is trying to use data to make a two-way conversation between the customer and the workout to inform a better experience to keep you engaged and in the game.”

Comprised of a mirror display with Corning® Gorilla® Glass optically bonded to the surface for a durable layer of touch interactivity, the Fitness Mirror provides access to Beachbody® On Demand content, as well as nutrition guides and a workout tracker to measure your results over time. The augmented reality camera built into the mirror acts as a personal trainer, providing feedback to perfect your Warrior pose or sink deeper into your squat. The mirror can also sync with an athlete’s personal wearable device, delivering real-time biometric updates for his or her workout stats.

“It really makes it [the fitness experience] much more immersive,” Bradford commented on the technology. “You have an experience like this providing you direct feedback while you’re working out – it goes way beyond putting a DVD into your TV and then just working out in your basement.”

While Corning showcased its mirror display in a fitness application, the possibilities for a large-format display such as this are limitless. Imagine having one in your home and dialing into a physical therapy session or using one in a mall for a personal shopping experience – with Corning’s advanced glass technologies, the possibilities are endless!
