Philips (www.philips.com) has unveiled a wall-mounted mirror that can convert into a television or computer monitor. The Mirror TV, which will be marketed to the hotel industry by the end of the year, is actually a 17, 23, or 30-inch liquid crystal display with a polarized coating that adjusts a portion of the mirror surface between a total light transmission TV mode and a total reflection mirror mode. Philips says Mirror TV allows users to watch the news and traffic while shaving and brushing their teeth.
The series now can interface with a wider array of EtherNet/IP-compliant hardware across many industrial sectors, including factory automation systems, plastic injection molding apparatus, and materials-handling equipment.
