Next Generation Mental Care
Mirrari is a startup based in Yes!Delft (incubator) was incorporated by two TU Delft graduates. Her mission is to help teenagers and adolescents to maintain their mental wellness. Mirrari designs beautiful products with cutting-edge technology and a high artistic value to fulfil the needs of the dedicated group.
According to research by the NJI and the CBS, one in five young people (a higher percentage than other age groups) suffers from a psychological problem due to the corona crisis. Depression and fears are ubiquitous. There are many institutes taking action to fight this issue that society faces. Mirrari trusts her approach has its uniqueness in existence.
Every morning, we use the help of a mirror to get ready and look good externally. However, internal reflection is often being neglected. What if, in the future, getting mentally ready for the day is a part of our morning routine? It starts with creating a general awareness of your mood and emotions. That is why I designed the interactive smart mirror, simply to trigger a moment of reflection.

The roots of studying cognitive behaviour and emotional pattern can trace back to the project leader’s research work at TU Delft in 2018 (Link). The recent release of Philips Biosensing (by EDA) provides a trustable platform for training Mirrari AI to predict and track players’ emotions and stress levels. This Tamagotchi-like digital pet helps the user to naturally form a habit of self-tracking.
Working prototype (August 2022)
Mirrari’s ambition does not stop at providing one more wearable. On the right, you can see a map of the total Mirrari product vision; it can also be seen as an abstract roadmap for product development. The system works this way: first, as input data, Mirrari will collect user data, including the user’s biosignal, physical activity data and social contextual data. These input data will feed into Mirrari AI to predict user’s emotions in real-time. Then, the Mirrari AI will generate a tailored gaming experience for the individual player based on their mood. Through the psychological lens and interactive game mechanism, the Mirrari VR game is tailored for the user, the player is the ultimate protagonist in the game, and they can play it in a VR immersive game environment.
