My first Magic Mirror (Italy)
Im Antonio from Milan Italy, and this is the beginning of my project.

- Mirror --> Pilkington MirroView ( https://www.brigla-shop.de/ )
- Raspberry Pi 3 B+
- Frame --> Wood self made.
More picture coming soon…
Modules configured, clean and simple, just what I need, ALEXA coming soon:

Testing temperature, heatsink is needed considering summer temperatures
Testing vertical layout, look better right?
You’re definitely off to a good start! I like the FLIR tool. I’m jealous. I don’t know why I would need one, but I want one now.
I notice that you took off the metal backing to your monitor. Did you have any concerns with that? I have to take the one off the mirror I’m building now because it kind of fell off during the bezel removal process. I haven’t done that before and I’m nervous I’ll short something.
@bhepler Yes I removed the shield to make it slimmer.
All the boards are 1cm above the LCD surface, I used some plastic spacers and I put an Electrical insulation paper above them.
I use the Flir thermocamera for testing the Broadcast Cameras that I sell, many cameraman complains about heat coming from cameras.
@qbox83 - Aha! I have a thin sheet of acrylic I can use as an insulation layer. I can then reposition the two boards of the monitor and position the Pi where I need it. Thanks!
Almost done, tomorrow I will post all the pictures step by step
