Dushyant Ahuja shared his Infinity Mirror Clock tutorial on the Adafruit G+ Community:

…Following up on my success with my Charlieplexed LED clock, I wanted to create something with more Jazz..

While browsing google images, I came across an instructable for an Arduino Infinity Mirror and the brain cells started working in overdrive. Why shouldn’t I make an infinity mirror, that’s also a clock !!

Features:

  1. Works like a clock – the colours of the hands are user-programmable over bluetooth
  2. Has an IR sensor to sense if someone is coming near the mirror. Switches off the LEDs, so that this can be used as a normal mirror 🙂
  3. Shows a rainbow effect every 15 minutes (time is user adjustable)
  4. Has a touch button to toggle between clock and rainbow effects
  5. Switches to night mode between midnight and 7:00 AM – can be changed in the code.
  6. Can be programmed over bluetooth – so you do not need to take it off the wall if you need to update the code

Read the full guide over at Instructables.
