Frameless Illuminated Motion Sensitive SmartMirror
I want to show you my smartmirror powered by Magic Mirror.
I made a Video to show it to you in action.
Let me know what you think!
Some more Details:
The mirror’s measurements are 80cm x 55cm. While the ones of the frame are 70cm x 45cm. So that the mirror glas juts out the frame by 5cm on each side. It has a thickness of 6mm.
I got the mirror from a glazier around my town. Unfortunately it is a german contact. On the delivery note it was mentioned as
ESG Mirastar-Spionspiegel(Spionspiegel = “two way mirror”).
I built the “frame” by myself. Actually it is rather a box than a frame. When standing in front of the mirror you won’t be able to see it.
I attached the 21" monitor to the frame.
The frame is attached to the mirror.
I used a special double-sided tape to fix the mirror to the frame.
In the picture below you can see that the tape is transparent.
I chose that one, because if it was a white one it could reflect light and it may be seen when you stand in front of the mirror. Therefore the box is also painted black.
@pascal456 That looks awesome! Do you have a build log? Or pictures of the back? What are you using to attach the mirror to the monitor?
Hi and thanks!!
I actually do not have something like a build log. But I will post some more pics here.
@pascal456 Thank you. I find your build process intriguing.
Do you have any concerns about the adhesion of the glass and the tape? I suppose I don’t know much about frameless mirrors. I have no idea how commercial mirrors are constructed.
Very nice! I’m also a bit concerned about how well the tape would hold the glass. Aren’t you afraid that it might fall at some point? Or does it seam really solid?
After I put the mirror glas onto the frame, I turned it around, took it by the frame and shook it as hard as it was possible. Nothing happened :D
Like you can see in the video in the product description (unfortunately it is in german) of the tape that i used, they fixed more than a 10kg weight to a wall. Actually the mirror glas has a relatively minor weight of about 6.5kg ;) AND I used about 20 times as much of the tape, like they did in the video.
I was more worried about the screws that i used to fix the mounting of the frame. :D
Very nicely done!
this looks really great! Could you tell me where you got your mirror from?
@cowboysdude Thank You!
@PtrBld Hi and thanks!
I will update the original post regarding that information!
