@Johans yah, when she said I dont want a rectangle mirror I was like oh crap… Ended up being quite a bit more work than intended. I think just making the jig to cut an oval took longer than making the frame itself…
Step 1, choosing components. After a bit of research I have decided on using Raspberry pi 3 to power my clock, and a 10" touchscreen from Adafruit, the wifi capabilities are a must have for this project.
Finally I found the time to bring my 6 year old Cybertecture Mirror back to life.
Sneak Peek from ubergizmo
I installed a 60GB SSD and installed Linux Mint. MagicMirror2 runs great on it. The original software was at that time still in beta-stage and therefore not fully developed.
At that time I tried to write my own software because there was nothing comparable at that time. But I gave it up pretty quickly. Here you can see the last update many years ago…
First Software test
Next I try to program a module which can communicate with the original body scales. I want to make the cables disappear in the wall and connect it to Homeassistant. Now the mirror is hanging in the hallway and the second one’s probably in the bathroom or he will be sold.
I look forward to lively discussions with you!
Here’s my effort! It currently uses these modules…clock, Google calendar, openhab floor plan showing lights and temps, bus timetable for 2 local routes, weather, compliments, network speed monitor, Google traffic map and cctv feed (bottom right, camera was offline!) All this is backlit with rgb leds controlled from openhab2!
