Where to get (cheap) acrylic mirror from in Germany
I love the smart mirror! Do you know any place in or around Freiburg, Germany (local) or online shops that ship to German addresses where I could get a mirror from that doesn’t cost too much? (I’m a poor student, you know)
I don’t mind acrylic glass or even a good foil (I already tried a chinese one though, terrible result. Don’t waste those 3$!).
This vendor was mentioned some time ago. I will call some local glaziers, but will give myspiegel.de a chance if prices are far off.
I have already contacted myspiegel a couple of weeks ago and they told me that their mirrors are not suitable for this project. According to them the glas materials is too dark. I think they received a lot of calls the last couple of months since this project was described on german television (“Galileo”).
The only supplier I found in Stuttgart was Glass Flüss: http://fluess-glas.de/
Guess I paid ~ 80€ for 50 x 50 cm. Hope that helps a bit.
I also called a local glazier for the semitransparent mirror, they told me it would be around 80€ as well… I was looking for something rather like what they sell on cutplasticsheeting.co.uk (search for “two way acrylic mirror”), since that is much cheaper than a real mirror and supposed to be optically just as good.
At this moment i found following sites:
Das sind bisher die Produkte, wo ich am überlegen bin
And definetily it looks pretty good.
Adding one more link to a mirror glas from Pilkington - which in my personal opinion - would be a perfect solution:
I am living in Munich and we have already contacted quite a few glaciers in Munich trying to buy a magic mirror glas (even contacted one glacier in Rosenheim) and up to now we have not been successful.
Honestly I am attempted to buy the glas at myspiegel.de since - at least in the Munich area - it seems impossible to find a local glacier beeing capable to supply a spy mirror.
I have read the posts mentioning Stuttgart and Switzerland, however this is a little bit too far for me just to purchase the glas.
Any comments/ success story from someone in Munich area more than welcome
For what did you exactly ask?
I made the experience that most off the glaciers had no clue but after i explained it or used the names above, they had some solution for me…
Thanks for the fast reaction:
We did ask for Spionspiegel and - after having the feeling that it might not be completely clear - explicitely for the Pilkington glas, however did not (yet) find someone capable to sell what we are looking for.
