Recommended mirror specs
do you have any recommendations for the best mirror-experience?
I could get a mirror glas with
transmission 3% and 4mm thickness. Or better 6mm?
The mirror should be hanging in the corridor. Most of the time it is artificial lighted. What do you think about the specs?
@pauabaer 3% is to little, I know, mine is 3%. I would suggest minimum 10% light transmission.
Same place of action?
@pauabaer one ceiling light, no windows.
It’s visible, but not really good enough, you have to use a big text size to see it clearly.
It works good with minimal light (i.e dark room with only monitors to light it up).
I took a picture of the mirror running, light and dark
Notice the thin text at the top, that’s the standard text-size of the MagicMirror.
The clock and weather forecast are in a bolder font.
@broberg thanks for the pictures. now i have an idea of the possible result.
how does the thickness influence the effect?
@pauabaer the thickness does not change anything (the reflective coating is usually only applied to one side of the glass).
Thats obvious. Thought perhaps it has any influence. So the thinner the better because of light weight?
@pauabaer yeah basically,
I would probably go with a thicker mirror if making a large one piece mirror. (mine is 120x60cm and 6mm thick)
wow. enormous weight!?
mine should be only 50x30
