from now on mirror orders in different geometrical forms are possible
I have created a new thread for this so that this information in the existing thread for the orders will not be overlooked. The conditions can be found in the picture below. You will continue to receive all existing edges including geometric shapes polished, if you want.
The orders themselves continue to run on the respective thread.
If you are interested, please deposit a note in “additional comments” and send me a drawing of your desire
This applies to all 240hz 1ms IPS panels, such as MAG251RX, VG259QM, XB253Q GX, AW2521HF/L, etc.
It seems that after a week, the monitor will start having burn in issues, and the only way to fix is to watch youtube videos?
I can’t order a 240hz IPS with peace of mind after I start reading on this issue.
Anyone knows what is going on?
@designs-by-Lucht recommend to use VA monitor. Best contrast , so real black during night and high white during day.
Check this out
*Both TN and IPS panels tend to have a contrast ratio around 1000:1, although in my testing I have noted some differences. TN panels tend to have the lowest contrast ratios when calibrated, with an entry-level panel sitting between 700:1 and 900:1 and good panels pushing up to that 1000:1 mark. IPS has a larger range, I’ve seen some as low as 700:1 like TNs, however the very best tend to push up higher than TN, with 1200:1 as the upper range for desktop monitors and some laptop-grade displays reaching as high as 1500:1.
Neither TN nor IPS get to the range of VA though. Entry-level VA panels start with a contrast ratio of 2000:1 from those that I’ve tested, with the best easily exceeding 4500:1, although 3000:1 is a typical figure for most monitors. TVs make extensive use of VA panels and there contrast ratios can be even higher. It’s not unusual to see over 6000:1. So if you want deep blacks and high contrast ratios, you’ll need to go with something VA*
it has always been like this you can often see that the boxes had to go through a lot, but that’s why the mirrors are so well packed that nothing happens anyway so far the mirrors have always arrived safely.
ivanov_d had the bad luck that someone walked around on his package and stepped on it several times (there are many shoe prints on it) and that the box was probably misused as a ramp or something. It would have needed an armored wardrobe as shipping packaging to avoid damage here …
ive got the ReSpeaker 4 Mic array installed on my new mirror along side MMM-GoogleAsistant and im wondering if its possible to use the leds (call a python program) at the different stages: Activate, Listen, Think, Speak like the real Assistants.
also has anyone any experience in programming these leds? i have a amazon and google example to work from but would be good to have some pointers
thanks again people
@pandeyprakhar00 great build mate, it looks fantastic.
I thought your ‘view from ISS’ MMM looked great. I am working on my first MM build at the moment and am looking to incorporate a similar feature (albeit different to your ISS feed). Was there a MMM you used to embed the live video stream?
I am extremely new to this stuff so any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have a short question about the smarttouch module. I’m planning to build a mirror with it, but wonder, if the module (and the Raspberry pi for that matter) is compatible with any IR touch frame (Xintai or ZZD in particular, because they are the only ones I found in 24 Inches).
Thank you very much in advance,
I just finished my first smartmirror project and I used https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0732S9XB9/ref=twister_B06Y2FYJ6V?_encoding=UTF8&th=1 which seemed a bit expensive. But now that I see there are a lot of different options and I was wondering If i could get some good links and what are the differences between film acrylic and glass. and what should I look for in terms of transparency.
@reniwqwil5 said in Questions about magic mirrors:
Hello I have a few questions about magic mirrors.
Most magic mirrors are lunar based. Does anyone have any experience of magic mirrors that are solar based?
Is it true that you have to make your own magic mirror and not purchase one or find one?
Has anyone put a familiar in a sigil or magic mirror? How did it turn out?
Alright so, I tried logging my account into Ps4 but when I press the “Sign in with a Microsoft Account” it says that it failed to log in and something went wrong. I restarted the console, and the game I got no idea what to do 10.0.0.0.1
My MM hardware:
Raspberry Pi 3b+
Respeaker 2-Mics Hat
Grove PIR Motion Sensor (connected to Respeaker GP12 SENSOR_PIN=12)
Grove Gesture Sensor (PAJ7620u2) connected to Respeaker I2C-Input
Works for me.
I’d like to follow up on that topic. I’m really stuck with picking the right monitor to use. The deeper I get into it the more confused I get ;).
I’d like to use the following Ikea Frame https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/ribba-frame-white-90378427/ (which is 12-16" or 30x40cm) which leaves me not a lot of depth to work with. Thus my idea was to salvage and use an old used laptop screen (around 17" -17.3") + a controller board.
But I can not really find any decent (brightness & contrast) and cheap option out there. Can you help me out and guide me into the right direction?
Or should I go with a normal screen from a monitor, and will it fit in the frame i am planning to use.
