Mirror I made 2 years ago. Still happy!



  • Hey everyone,

    I started updating my mirror the other day and thought I’d share what I built 2 years ago. I needed somewhere to put my stuff and hang some clothes, so why not a combo around a 19" old monitor

    First I created a box around the monitor, with a shelf and some aluminum pipes for hanging clothes.

    A frame around the front to cover the edges of the monitor.

    I just bought the new S7 back then so a NFC charger was a necessity. I was a big fan of the Pebble watches and backed all their projects so I also made a charger for the Core thingy that was the last thing that got cancelled on Kickstarter before Fitbit bought and “shut Pebble down”.

    This is how I attached the oak-charger to the main module

    Front panel with 1 USB for charging, 1 USB connected to the Pi and a sensor to turn on monitor.

    Need to be able to hang it on the wall

    Ready for some paint, oil and wiring

    Happy with the result!

    Time to fit the monitor and the touchscreen that I already put the film on. I have no pictures on that procedure, and that is good because I totally messed the film up so the mirror is now a little skew on some places and looks like the funny mirror house on the tivoli. Though it makes me smile every morning! 😆

    And finally fit everything in it

    The result when done. 🙂

    It’s now 2 years later and I just changed the monitor as it broke down, so I have also reinstalled the software and will now add, speakers, cam, microphone, Alexa and some homeautomation if possible. Thanks for checking my mirror out.
