I’ve been posting here for the last few days so I thought I’d finally introduce myself!
My name is Ad, i’m 27 and work primarily in the youth work and development sector. I enjoy tinkering as a hobby but would not consider myself an expert by any means, more of a Jack of all trades, master of none.
I’ve built 2 mirrors so far, the first was a very hacky job using a throw away monitor from a youth center I used to work at and some spare parts I had from previous RPi projects, it uses an RPi 2 and runs Smart-mirror which has hotword detection etc.
I then started building my second mirror which uses MagicMirror2 and so far I have found the experience spot on. It’s been very reliable and easy to use and I love the fact that the modules gives everybody control to make their own mods, Smart-Mirror relies primarily on it’s creator to issue the updates which can be cumbersome when trying to customise the mirror for each user.
Don’t be afraid to say Hi! I’ve posted a picture below of my second mirror, when it’s complete I will post the rundown in the show off your mirror section.
That’s enough from me! Take it easy…
