Newbie Making 1st Magic Mirror - What Camera to use & Where to situate it
I am building my 1st MM along with my daughter. We are going to attach a camera to it so that we can use it for facial recognition and profile switching. She would like her profile to have different modules to me and also for it to display a greeting from BTS (not sure if this is possible yet ).
What I would like to know firstly is: what type of camera is best to use? (i’m ready with a Raspberry Pi Camera v2.1 in my basket on Pimoroni to purchase) and secondly, Where do you actually situate the camera? i’m assuming it needs to be between the screen and the 2 way mirror acrylic stuff? or do people mount it on the frame?
I am also assuming that i need to add the profile switching module and facial recognition module once i have the camera etc ready.
Any guidance welcome
Thanks in advance
