This Magic Mirror Will Tell You, In Words, How Good You Look Runs on Pi @Raspberry_pi #piday #raspberrypi

Thanks to some awesome handy-work and a raspberry pi, this magic mirror from Michael Teeuw is a serious upgrade from the normal mirror you find in department store dressing rooms. Michael writes:

So, I found the right type of mirror, bought the monitor, built a new casing, installed the hardware and configured the Raspberry Pi. Now it’s time for the final part of the project: the development of the interface.

Requirements & Features

When I started the project, I figured the interface would not allow any direct interaction with using the mirror. This would result in grease and smudges on my shiny mirror, but more important: there are better devices for user interaction. I wanted the Magic Mirror to be a passive source of information.

What was even more important is the fact that the mirror should be usable as a mirror, and thus it should not be completely filled with (useless) information. Only the outer corners should be used for content. Leaving enough room to see my shiny self.

If figured I needed to following content to fulfill my need for information:

  • A Compliment
  • What’s better then to start your day with a nice compliment?

  • Weather
  • That shirt I’m wearing? Looks nice! But is it warm enough to wear a t-shirt?

  • Clock and calendar
  • Am I in a hurry? Or is there enough time to enjoy my reflection?

  • News feed
  • Should I only be worried about my shiny appearance? Or is there more to worry about?

Of course, there are plenty of possibilities for the future. But for now above list will suffice.
