here is a module for displaying live pictures of our planet on your mirror.
The pictures are taken from the Himawari-8 satellite.
It’s also possible to use custom pictures.
Hope you’ll enjoy it =)
Cool and interesting! Im gonna try it out and see how it works. :)
Implemented, thank you!
@iMAGiC & @gshimself: thanks for your feedback. would it be possible, that one of you could post a picture of the module on a mirror. I just started building mine (don’t have the glass yet) and would like to know how it looks on a mirror. right now I can only look at it on my monitor.
@LukeCodewalker my mirror will be built in my new living room on Jan, 2017.
this is my test screen(22") with glass+film, I think you also want to see.
@iMAGiC wow that looks great =)
Ni hao, fei chang hao :-)
@LukeCodewalker great work! Thanks for this module, i already tested it. I will upload a picture tomorrow.
But i have one question. Is it possible to fade the image ? Like its getting darker and brighter after time in repeat?
Thank you. I don’t really understand what you mean with fade. Do you want to have a fade between to images in the moment when a new picture was loaded? Or do you want to fade it over a longer time? Then you should try ‘natColor’ as the style property in your config for this module.
Yes i want to fade one picture over a longer time. Like an LED Fading on/off over a periodic time. But i managed to do it with a gif, i created.
Btw.: Here is a picture which i promised :) i used a custom picture. (It’s in the dark because the mirror isn’t complete by now and the monitor i use atm isn’t really the best :/
