So I finally made my first mirror. Been lurking on this forum for a couple of weeks, and it’s helped enormously. Anyway, I got an old tv from my girlfriend and built a frame from some lovely walnut wood I had intended to use for something else. I knew very little about raspberry pis, but had one lying around and thought why not go all out and try to finish it. Glad I did!
The glass is 6mm thick 2 way glass at 24" x 14" from a company in Tipperary, which they shipped to Dublin for me.
I got the code from all of the great modules on here, such as my local bus time table, my calendar, a trello todo list board (so my girlfriend and I can both update it from our phones if needs be), and some RSS feeds and the usual weather forecasting stuff. We both love it! Think it’s going to prove very useful.
Still don’t have the IR sensor installed, would love for this to be something I could turn off or on more easily than my current setup (like a proximity sensor or something) , but ya gotta start somewhere!
Anyway, hope you like it!
