Abstract

In this paper we introduce the Virtuoso project, which aims at creating a seamless interactive support for fitness and wellness activities in touristic resorts. The overall idea is to evaluate the current physical state of the user through a technology-enhanced mirror. We describe the state of the art technologies for building a smart mirror prototype. In addition, we compare different parameters for evaluating the user’s physical state, considering the user’s impact, the contact requirements and their cost. Finally we depict the planned setup and evaluation setting for the Virtuoso project.
