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.

    Here is the final of what the back looks like.

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

    the cords behind the dresser

    Here are some pictures of the final project. Thanks to Michael for creating everything that makes this possible.
