During the time Im in Homeoffice i search the internet about Raspi-Pi Projekts and so i found MagicMirror.
Im a man, without hair, an not much vain, so i stand not often in front of a mirror
My small apartment don’t have a big entrance hall and i live alone, so a “Mirror” was not a good choice for me.
But: I like cooking and Im often in the Kitchen, because it’s the central space in my apartment.
Thats the reason why the idea of an “Infotainment-Display” in the kitchencabinet was growing up in me.
There is not much “Wallspace” in a kitchen, so i want to integrated the Touchdisplay
in the cabinet.
My good friend is a carpenter, so he would help me.
This Pictures are from the pre-assemply-phase.
In a couple of month, when the renovation of my apartment is finish, we will all assemble.
I show some Pictures when it’s all done!
RaspPi 4B 4GB with Rasbian on a 64GB SDCard
I want a fanless Pi-case, i make good expirience with this:
Raspi is running at 49-52°C
Waveshare 15,6" Touchscreen
MMM-Touchbutton to go back to the Desktop
Im a Photographer, i want to show my Pictures, so i install a Slideshow of this in the Background
MMM-iHaveBeenThere for the animated background image.
MMM-Globe for the animated background image.
In the bottom left corner I install a Button (via MMM-Touchbutton) to end the MagicMirror and go back to the Rasbian Desktop
There i installed a Touchkeyboard (Florence) and thus i have access to the Browser for a quick Internetsearch of recipes or something else.
To start the MagicMirror again, i have build-in an Desktopicon to startup.
I dont implementet a MP3-Player or something, because an Echo Dot is nearby and play my Music.
For changing the pictures or have access over the network a Samba-Server is running.
I like the idea, when Im away the Display go’s off to save energie. I built that with a script who looks every 20 seconds if my mobile is
connectet to my Wifi. If not, i switch a Wifi-PowerPlug to off. When im back again, to on.
