I am in the process of going to create my very first magic mirror. I plan on locating it in our bathroom and i will be using an hp 23" monitor (E233 Elite display). I plan on powering my pi using the usb sockets in the monitor thus hopefully only having one cable comes out of the mirror itself. I am going to add a speaker at the base to allow music to be played through it to avoid having to put separate speaker systems in my bathroom and maybe add a microphone to allow voice activation. One feature i was interested in and not too sure if this would work would be to integrate an NFC reader into the frame. The idea being is that either myself or the Mrs. taps our phone against the reader and it will play our own playlists. The thing is though she uses apple music and i use amazon music so i’m going to have to find a way to integrate this into it.
That’s the idea anyway, i’ll try to keep you all updated with its progress and of course any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.
