Summer and Birthday Mirror Project



  • I saw a post about a smart mirror and saw that it didn’t take many parts to assemble and decided to make one. I had an old monitor laying around (13x15), it was DVI however, so I did have to buy an adapter, but I found the monitor really useful as it has to external USB ports and two internal, in addition to the 4 the raspberry Pi has I have 8 total, and I got my raspberry pi from amazon in a kit. I also got my frame and 3mm, 2 way acrylic mirror from Amazon for my 16th birthday!
    Finished with what I want on the magic mirror.

    I used a 18x24 in. mirror with the 13x15in monitor. I had to figure out how to get the monitor to stay in the top right and make everything fit. I liked having the bigger mirror than monitor to have more room to actually have a mirror and for cord management.

    I used a type of cardboard from an old bulleting board my grandpa made and cut out the size of the monitor to fit it in.

    I am putting the mirror on my dresser, and in the top drawer I put in a keyboard for easy access to make changes.
