The sensor pad provides a color matching feature which uses your natural skin color to match products with shades that compliment your complexion. Another feature that the sensor provides is that you can scan a product or a package to get information instantly on the monitor.
The Interactive monitor combines AI and AR to map the costumer and realistically allow the customer to try on makeup instantly. If the costumer likes what they see they can choose to view a tutorial on how to apply the makeup.
