video (10 tips to help build a magic mirror) link text
I’ve made several of my mini mirrors, but making a large one was a much different experience. I hit a lot of issues that I had to refere back to documentation or the forum, so I made a video of what tripped me up to hopefully help others. The actual build time was likely about 2 hours, but there was also time picking out a frame and picking up various components.
Raspberry pi 3, PIR sensor in 3d printed case, store bought frame, Tap plastic acrylic mirror ($75)
Dimensions: 20" x 16" mirror size.
Monitor: 4:3 DVI 1280 x 1024 upcycled old dell monitor
MMM-Admin , MMM-QRCode (This is a killer combo!)
MMM-Mystandings - Beautiful module, very well done
MMM-Carousel - I always install this, it’s too useful not to, but it’s not currently used…yet
MMM-IFrame - using it for traffic…easy to do with no API key needed
Biggest tip/finding - Having the MMM-QRCode with the path to the admin page is magical. I can walk up, scan it with my phone, and then have the UI on my phone fairly quickly to go through adding/removing/updating. The Install module of MMM-Admin is a killer feature IMO, but it still has some bugs…now and then I lose a module or it doesn’t work, but if that can get sorted, it makes it ‘app store easy’ to add stuff which I appreciate.
The one learning that didn’t make that video is that I used the MMM-IFrame and had a youtube playlist going. The problem is I have a metered connection of 1TB a month (Comcast) and so having a looping youtube video playing was not the best idea. However, it did look super geeky and cool when I had it running…I made a URL for a playlist of star trek LCARS diagrams and had that running to spice up the mirror.
Here’s that URL in case someone else wants to use it, or learn from it. I used it with MMM-iFrame and it was beautiful - you can use the autoplay and loop portions to get a playlist you want to loop working as well
I think next I may try to write or modify a module. I have a gesture sensor, and while there is a gesture plugin for it, it requires an Arduino and another sensor for presence. I’m REALLY happy with MMM-IR for presence right now, and I feel like I should be able to get this sensor working with the raspberry pi directly, so I’m going to give it a go with some python when I get a sec. It’s an APDS-9960 which I think came from sparkfun.
One other note…anyone measuring the power draws on their monitors? my setup was 30 watts, so the MMM-PIR was a lifesaver (brought it down to 2 watts). That’s $30 a year vs. $2 a year for running this project. I wonder about some of the larger TV based mirrors and what they’re drawing…
Anyway any questions or comments please let me know. Huge thanks to the community here…without the answers that I found searching here I wouldn’t have been able to complete this project nearly as quickly.
Hello dear fellow MagicMirror builders, after lots of trials and errors, I have finally finished my MagicMirror.
I wanted to build a simple mirror that blends harmoniously into our interior and is also accepted by my family.
The mirror should therefore have a certain size, but but should not protrude too far into the room.
That’s why I have choosen a reasonably UltraSlim TV and a slim metal frame.
I´m using a Samsung Smart TV and a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B assembled onto a metal frame.
On the Pi the Operating system Raspberry Stretch from April 2019 and MagicMirror 2.7.1 is installed.
Additionally I have installed an On/Off switch to the metal frame.
The whole assy of frame and TV I have mounted to the wall via mounting rails and has a total depth of 52 mm and a weight of 25 kilogram.
The cost of the whole build (including frame, glass and electronics) was a little more than EUR 200.
Specs and Cost:
Mirror Glass – MIRROPANE CHROME SPY 80cm L x 60cm W @ 4mm thickness = EUR 90
Rasberry Pi 2 Model B with Edimax Wifi Adapter = EUR 7 from an Online Used Market
Monitor – Samsung UE32D4010 UltraSlim = EUR 65 from an Online Used Market
Outer Frame – 640 mm L x 840 mm W x 20 mm D = EUR 20 from an Online Used Market
Inner Frame – 600 mm L x 800 mm W x 30 mm D = EUR 12 from an ebay reseller
MDF board – 100 mm L x 100 mm W x 2 mm D = EUR 10 from a hardware store
Please see pictures below:
Since I have a 4-fold multiple socket integrated, of course the mirror can still be extended.
Maybe in the future even LED light and face recognition will be added, but at the moment I would like to admire my little project for a while.
So finally of course I would like to thank Michael Teeuw, the creator of the MagicMirror, the different developers of the various modules and of course this community, who made this project possible.
Implementation of coffee supplychain using ethereum smart contract addressing the issue of storing critical data necessary at different stages of supplychain and making it verifiable by all stakeholders in supplychain.
This project showcases the journey of coffee beans on the
The coffee supply chain is the sequence of activities and process to bring raw coffee beans from coffee farms to processed coffee in markets.
Problems in Existing System
Currently, Coffee trade mostly relies on fax machines and emails to send and receive contracts across the globe, resulting in slower and error-prone paperwork.
Blockchain can solve this by providing immutable and verifiable data sources.
What We are Providing?
We have implemented a smart contract addressing the issue of storing critical data necessary at different stages of supply chain and making it verifiable by all stakeholders in supply chain.
Application Workflow Diagram
In This Application, We Have Six Stages
Admin creates a new batch which is the initial stage of a coffee batch.
Farm-inspectors are responsible for inspecting coffee farms and updating the information like coffee family, type of seed and fertilizers used for growing coffee.
Harvesters conducting plucking, hulling, polishing, grading and sorting activities, further updating the information of crop variety, the temperature used and humidity maintained during the process.
Exporters are the organization who exports coffee beans throughout the world. Exporter adds quantity, destination address, ship name, ship number, estimated date, and time and exporter id.
Importers imports the coffee from coffee suppliers and updates quantity, ship name, ship number, transporters information, warehouse name, warehouse address, and the importer’s address.
Processors are the organizations who process raw coffee beans by roasting them on particular temperature and humidity and makes it ready for packaging and to sale into markets. The processor adds the information like quantity, temperature, roasting duration, internal batch number, packaging date time, processor name and processor address.

@bhepler I am planing every mirror to display the same information for now. The idea is every family member to have it’s own mirror and to have it’s own mirror profile. I am still thinking how the mirror will recognize you, maybe via Bluetooth connection via mirror - phone. Still in dev mode If you have any suggestions please, I wanna hear every idea.
The Mirror quality is pretty good, in my opinion. I had a friend make a “quick and dirty” Smart Mirror with regular glass and reflective film, so that’s my only real basis for comparison. Although might scratch easily? I have one scratch that appeared when I was installing the plate hangers.
End Game was outstanding! And yes, it was a slow start, but man once it had momentum…
Ja mach schon Spass…
Wollte auch einen openhub installieren … auf einem raspi Zero… Mal schauen ob das was wird… Meine ESP usb serial programmer hardware kommt erst noch.
Wollte die Temperaturwerte mit mmm-rest auslesen… Mal schauen… Ich danke dir jedenfalls für die tips
I kept the bottom open thinking it would help with air circulation (and wasn’t worried about light entering from the bottom), but this was a great bonus.
Hehe I actually thought I had gone overboard with that many heat sinks, but I haven’t turned my monitor off even once yet and the back of monitor is still cool as a cucumber!
