Mirror, Mirror, In the Room, How Much Water Did I Consume?

Bathroom mirror with LED colored lights tells you how much water you’re consuming

Yes, Snow White’s evil stepmother had a mirror that told her who the fairest one of all was, and now designer Jin Kim has created a mirror that will tell you how much water you are consuming on a daily, monthly and yearly basis.

The mirror may not talk to you, but it does communicate with a series of LED colored lights that are located around the rim of the mirror. The lights are powered by the flow of water through the pipes that are connected to your sink. There are even cool pictures of polar bears and ecosystems that light up when you’ve consumed enough water to endanger them.

You still don’t believe me, do you? Well, check out the design in its entirety.

Yes, this is a very complex and far-fetched design, but if it actually worked, wouldn’t you feel slightly sad to see a polar bear standing on a huge, melting piece of ice on your mirror? I would.
