The rest in restroom. For hygiene and well-being.

Epidemics are a growing concern. With multiresistent bacteria developing through widespread use of antibiotics, the ever increasing population density and globalization, an outbreak could be disastrous. Keeping a personal hygiene level plays an important role to prevent the spread of diseases. Though often neglected is handwashing the single most effective measure. Especially in busy places.

GENE is a smart mirror for those public restrooms. It promotes hygiene and well-being. An unexpected glimpse of nature that tackles the stress symptoms our modern lifestyle causes. These do not only affect us immediately but also through neglected hygiene. GENE establishes a moment of self-care: thirty seconds of awareness to focus on the important things. Your personal wellbeing and thereby that of others.

Say Hi to GENE.
