Found out about MagicMirror’s from the few viral posts thats I’ve seen on reddit and last month decided to give it a go.
I no longer used my dual monitor desktop so decided to take one apart and see how difficult making the mirror could be.
It was an HP 2011x 20inch Monitor and bought the a RaspberryPi 3 to attempt the programming.
I am an IT technician by profession so I am happy to get my hands in taking stuff apart and putting it back together again.
I bought the 2 way reflective plastic from
which has a really good service and works well for builders in the UK.
My dad is the handyman. Joiner for 40 years. He helped out with building the frame and casing for the mirror. Made out of mahogany and plywood for support.
There is the one issue because of the type of monitor the DVI connection is facing outwards rather than down. Anyone able to suggest an alternative circuit that would be compatible or a way that this could be mounted to a wall?
Not added much in terms of modules apart from the IP showing which is handy for remote connections.
Let me know what you all think!
