Bathroom mirror, more than meets the eye

Gilito from Alcoi, Spain, has this absolutely fabulous mirror. It really got me. Me. Like. Robots. Too.

“I would like to submit my simple hack conformed by the Atran lockable cabinet in stainless steel, the mirror Frack, and two lamps that I got in another lamp store.

I like to collect metallic robots toys and this is the idea for the mirror in my bathroom. (and I am too lazy to setup a good electric installation of the principal lamp, that it is like the first day I bought the house).”

    I think Gilito is a real freaky and has a lot of time to spend. He needs a real girlfriend right now and to take care of a couple of litle kids.

    At the left of the sink is a 45 cm wide washer/dryer. :-)

    I’m not a robot fan so I’m not really feeling this hack. But to each his own. May I ask what is to the left of the sink? And I envy your sink/faucet combo!

    I think this is excellent, I would try and robotify it a little more too. Maybe some more arms with different things at the end (toothbrush holder etc.)
